Founders Breakfast Stout

founders-breakfast-stout

Another classic craft brew in a bottle is Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I can’t bring myself to drink in the morning, but if I were to have beer for breakfast, this would be the one.   It pours without a lot of head, and there isn’t a lot of carbonation, but the head that is there is creamy and heavy.  The scent is heavily laced with espresso and a hint of chocolate, and the middle is chocolaty, milky, and smooth, with just a hint of pine.  The finish is a bit spicy, with more coffee, and the warmth of the alcohol.  This is an exceptional beer, and one of my all time favorites.

I give it a 4.8 out of 5.
