Founders Breakfast Stout

Brewery name:  Founders Brewing Company
ABV:  8.3%
Availability:  Seasonal (September – December)
Method (draft, can, bottle):  Bottle

Description:   This is our stout of choice to start your morning. It happens to fit perfectly with our Stout Day Breakfast of Champions recipes.   I am not a coffee drinker, but even I enjoy when you pour this rich dark brown stout into a pint glass and you are greeted with a roasted coffee and bitter coco aroma.  Tasting this stout is no different.   As you take a sip you are hit with a strong coffee flavor, and in the background you can pick up notes of dark chocolate, brown sugar, and molasses.  This is another stout that only gets better as it creeps closer to room temperature and will allow more of the chocolate to come to the front of the flavor.  The Founders Breakfast Stout is velvety smooth, really easy to drink, and is the perfect beer to begin the day.
