A - pours midnight black with an espresso-like foamy head.

S - rich coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted nuts. Amazing!

T - unbelievably complex; sweet cocoa, piney spice, roasted coffee, and the warmth from 8.3% A.B.V.

M - smooth and silky; not the least bit "heavy." Perfect for the style.

Drinkability - it will take a great amount of self-discipline to cellar this stout. I'd recommend a name change--"Anytime Stout." Thanks Founders!

I think this is the perfect stout. I know many out there would argue some of the bigger bolder (harder to get) stouts are superior, but I think this is just right in many ways. While the likes of Founders KBS and CBS are of course delicious, they can be a bit overpowering in taste, abv, and price. Not to mention nearly impossible to find. I find that stout's are often too thin, bordering on a porter or too big and just a bit too much to truly enjoy. At 8.30 the alcohol is barely noticeable, not even a hint of booze. The smell is of roasted coffee and dark chocolate, flawless as is the pitch black appearance with light brown foamy head. I've chased all the big stouts and after a few years of experimenting, I've come back to this as my all time favorite. The best part is the price, at $9.99 and readily available you can't beat it. If it were in large format (22 oz) that would translate to about $4.50 for a bomber for a world class beer. Considering you can't find a decent large format stout for under $8, that works out to be a tremendous value. Cheers!
