Off on a tangent here, but hopefully it will help someone else. I drank this cold(fridge temp) in the past and thought...meh...it's ok. Then had 1 at cellar temp. Totally different experience. Opened my eyes to how good this stout really is...WOW. Now I'm drinking all my stouts, barleywines, etc at cellar temp. Wrong all these years and didn't even know it.

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.
