Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout (2017)

What the brewers say

“CBS was born when we stumbled upon some bourbon barrels that had previously housed maple syrup. Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee, and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Coffee, caramel, and maple syrup, some roast with a nice warming alcoholic note.”

Flavor: “Maple-syrup sweetness, chocolate, and caramel and a moderate coffee spiciness. Alcohol warming that lets you know it’s there but not harsh or overwhelming. Finishes sweet chocolate, light coffee, maple, and a touch of booze.”

Overall: “Rich and complex blend of many pieces that fit together pretty well. Nice breakfast-stout complexity. The maple syrup adds a nice spicy note that is accentuated by the barrel character.”
