4.35/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured with a huge brown head (I think the size will vary depending on when it was bottled, most Founders beers are bottle conditioned and though I can't see it I assume this one is no different). The head lasted the entire time, even though I was drinking slowly. There's some good lacing. The beer itself is black and very beautiful. The smell is primarily coffee, but you get quite a good roasted scent, dark malts, some sweetness, but it's limited by the coffee. The taste is smooth, a bit bitter from the coffee, but backed up well by a roasted sweetness. The taste is really hitting on something nice, a bit more tolerable than pure bitter black coffee. The mouthfeel is good, with a decent rush of carbonation. The aftertaste does not have as much of the acrid coffee taste, especially after a couple of months. It's pretty easy to drink for an 'imperial' stout, though many beers in the category have similar ABVs which are lower than a RIS, but they have pumped up flavors. This beer is really great, and I could have another. I can say that in the future, I will probably purchase more.
