I have to say that I was surprised to see a child eating what appears to be oatmeal on the label of this brew. Some lawsuit happy dumbass might be tempted to sue Founders because it could appear to be a children's drink (if a person was really stupid). Cute label. I like it.
Pours a dark dark ebony with a dark brown short-lived head. Minor lacing on the glass looks like some sort of alien language.
Smells of slightly oxidized espresso/strong coffee and dark chocolate. Hints of an acidic coffee smell in there as well.
Tastes is the same as the nose. A strong coffee (slightly oxidized) and dark chocolate flavor lead with a nice coffee bean bitterness on the end.
Mouthfeel is slightly too prickly for my tastes. Would like to see this creamier like Expedition. Maybe ageing will help?
Drinkability is high - especially with thick cut bacon and sunny-side up eggs fried in bacon grease! YUMMY!
Excellent beer to go with a greasy breakfast.

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass
Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well
Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol
Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present
Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
