Poured from bottle into a snifter
A - Pours a dark brown color, very little light penetration, almost none once its in the glass. An average pour yields a thin cinnamon colored head, some of which stays thoughout the drink. Light spotty lacing
S - Kona coffee, sweet chocolate, oats, milk sugar, roasted notes, just amazing how they all work together to make a phenomenal scent.
T - Lots of sweet chocolate, coffee, and roasted notes, has sort of a milk/cream stout flavored finish. Absolutely no taste of booze. Mmmmm SO GOOD!
M- Light carbonation, creamy and smooth, all of the above flavors stick in your mouth.
D - I could have this stuff for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The coffee/roasted finish makes you want to keep on sipping...
Overall, this is hands down one of my favorite stouts. I try not to buy the same beers over and over but this is one that just keeps pulling me back.... Definately a world class beer, SO DELICIOUS!!!! THANK YOU FOUNDERS!!!!

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
