I could smell this for days. A slight grittiness on the palate is the only (slight) negative here.

A great stout. This is not too sweet which I like in a stout. I think I would probably go with Founders Imperial Stout as I remember it being just as good, maybe better, which is impressive at a higher abv. It would be interesting to try them side by side. But can't go wrong with FBS.
