Welcome to Cosmo's Beer Blog!

We’re a small group of friends and family scattered across the country who’ve all developed a thirst for craft and import beer. We decided that a blog would be a great venue for us to share our hobby. Here we will review beer, compare notes and challenge each other with "Beer Missions".

So welcome to our little world of discovering great tasting beer!

Founders... Again!

Okay, I have definitely been on a big Founders kick lately. I think this will be the last one I review for a while... until I get my hands on a bottle of Canadian Breakfast Stout that is!

Breakfast Stout by Founders
Style / abv: Imperial Stout / 8.3%
Source / Temp: 12oz bottle / 55 deg
Glass: Wine Glass

Appearance: Dark brown, verging on black. Poured with virtually no head, just a small ring of brown bubbles.

Aroma: Fresh coffee, maple and dark chocolate. I'm not sure I pick up on the Kona, but the Sumatra is evident.

Taste: Rich dark chocolate blended with robust coffee and roasted malt. Interestingly, I think the Kona is more evident in the taste. I can't taste the hops but they bite my tongue at the finish.

Drinkability: This beer has creamy, thick mouthfeel making for a good sipping beer.

Breakfast Stout is one of my very favorite stouts. I look forward to it when it comes out each season and I buy enough to last a while.

I give Breakfast Stout a 9 out of 10.

Eis Igian,
