Served from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appears super dark with a rich-looking creamy head.

Smells of roasted coffee with a hint of dark chocolate.

Tastes just like it smells. It doesn't bowl me over. It's not as complex, at least at this point, for my tastes.

Its mouthfeel creamy. One can get a milk stout feel from what must be a lactose sugar or maltodextrine. There's a nice chocolate pudding thing going on here.

Overall this is one of Founders better offerings. I think it will get better and deeper with some aging.

Black with a tan head. Strong aroma of dark coffee. Full, intense taste of coffee, creamy mouthfeel, lasting bitterness on the finish.

This is almost more coffee than beer. I've been a home coffee roaster for quite a while, and have had my share of excellent coffees. What impresses me most about this beer is the quality of coffee in the aroma and taste--rich and complex.

A very impressive offering.
