Possibly my favorite stout I've ever had, which is saying a lot. Smooth mouthfeel, fantastic finish. I used to travel from northern VT into MA to get it before Founders made their way up north. Worth every penny, and I look forward to it every year.

Aroma isn't anything special but I was quite happy with the explosion of flavor. Definitely worth the wait

Waited a long time to try this, and completely worth the wait. I prefer my stouts with coffee and chocolate notes, sans bourbon, and this, to my palate, is as close to perfection as I can imagine. Top notch.

Intense milk chocolate flavors combined with some roasted coffee. This is a great overall beer.

Great beer, but I find the coffee flavor to be a hair too much for my personal tastes. Still solid.
