The highly sought after second release of the Backstage Series from Founders, Canadian Breakfast Stout. This beer was very hard to come by, and highly acclaimed. Canadian Breakfast Stout is an Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of coffees and imported chocolates aged in Bourbon barrels that have been aging Michigan Maple syrup.
We poured this for New Years Eve, thanks goes to Jason on this one. It pours a very dark brown almost black, with a minimal head. The aroma is of coffee and chocolate, maple syrup is definitely evident with a minimal vanilla and oak. The taste is very sweet, primarily due to the maple syrup. Nice thick mouthfeel, with coffee and chocolate along with slight bourbon and oak flavors. Overall it is a smooth drinking imperial stout, definitely in my top 5. If you can find it, i suggest buying it. The hype for this beer was a little over the top but it is very good.
