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.
