A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate to go on a journey. A journey deep into the heart of darkness.
In the world of beer geekery, few names elicit such awe as Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout. A rather new offering to the scene, it shot straight to the forefront of our collective, suds-filled, hearts and minds. Within days, bottles were going for $100 and up. Mayhem ensued. Parents locked their doors, curfews were enforced. It was nigh time I got my hands on some.
Jonathan Moxey, friend and Beer Scribe for Serious Eats: Drinks showed up at my doorstep with a cornucopia of Founders Stouts to get to the bottom of the hype. Oh, and did we ever. My house still smells like sweet, sweet stout.
Today, his great round-up of the tasting came out:
