10/24/12 Founders Breakfast Stout

It has been a while since the last time I have posted and its because I've been lazy. Its not that I'm drinking less. In fact I am drinking more its just been hard to get motivated to post. This is driving me nuts. I feel like I should be more motivated. But besides that I ended up successively brewing my second batch of beer. The Party Pig worked really well this time. I made sure the seals looked good and I kept it upright for 2 weeks before I put it in the fridge. The beer tasted pretty decent. I made Mr. Beer Cowboy Lager this time. So onto Founders Breakfast Stout. This stuff was amazing. I tried to drink it slowly so I could really enjoy. Then I made some Quaker Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal and had it with the second half of the beer. I had this beer out of my Guinness pint glass and it had a temperature of 46.8 degrees. The head size was average at about an inch. It poured nicely and had a rocky dark head the dissipated slowly with excellent lacing. The carbonation was little from what I could tell because this beer was a dark as a pitch black night. I mean you could not see anything through this beer. It had a taste and aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and oatmeal with the coffee taste being the strongest and the chocolate aroma being the strongest. The flavor was moderate with a long finish length and a dry mouth feel. The tongue hit was towards the back and the body lacing was excellent. Overall this beer was an A and probably one of if not the best beer I have ever had. If you love dark beers and coffee you will absolutely love this beer. Thanks for ready and as always drink responsibly.
