look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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!
