Details

Elegant. Well-crafted. Full of depth. The 2018 Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout is so good it almost melts in your mouth. Aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for a year, this chocolate and coffee-infused Imperial Stout boasts creamy and smooth flavours of milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The bourbon notes are rather evident and brings with it a nice warming character. Its medium-full body is viscous thanks to oats but it feels lighter than it is because of a light, dry finish. Age it or drink it now: either way, it's a beauty!

Please note, like a fine wine, this beer is great to keep in the cellar for years and keep revisiting to see how it’s aged.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

My first try from tbe Founders big hitters case. Heard so much about this and it doesn't disappoint...so many flavours complement each other with strong coffee coming through. You can taste the strength, definitely a sipper, had mine after a lamb roast. The best thing? There's two of these in the case!
Great Stout

Rich, black, chocolatey, strong coffee notes. Not overly carbonated and not too much head. Great lasting taste.
A great beer.
