Picked up a 4pk for ~13. Bottled date of 9/06/2011. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A- Pours a deep velvety brown from bottle. Sits a dark brown in glass. A little mocha head starts to form, but leaves only a slim ring of tiny bubbles. A very gentle whispering of foam stays around.
S- Lots of freshly brewed coffee upfront. Some roasted dark malts and smokey notes give it depth and more substance. A crisp aroma of bittersweet chocolate is in the background. The coffee aroma is quite bold and smells better then what I often drink in the morning.
T- Heavy roasted dark coffee & bittersweet chocolate upfront. A solid smokey quality. The coffee quality is in great harmony with the other flavors. A slight burnt note peaks through in the finish. The flavors really linger well and still have some complexity.
M- medium- big bodied. Robust, but not overpowering. Strong roasted quality and some mellow bitter that lingers on the tongue. Wet, until the very end, then dries. A good feel for a 8.3% stout. Some tingly fizzy feel. Could have a bit more depth.
O- A great coffee stout. Another solid offering from Founders. Been waiting a year to try this brew. Really great!

A- Dark black with a decent head.
S- A nice blend of chocolate and coffee beans. The smell dissipated rather quickly in my snifter, but agitating it brought it all right back.
T- Lives up to it's smell wonderfully, a rich coffee and chocolate flavor. Can't say I really pick up on the oatmeal as well as the former flavors, but it tastes amazing nonetheless.
M- Very smooth, non intrusive aftertaste. Minimal amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.
O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, both in terms of smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had and my favorite stout to date.
