look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: jet black with steady foamy khaki head.

S: roasted coffee shines the brightest with chocolate and vanilla in the race for se ond place and heavy malts and grains in third.

T: more like coffee with alcohol. The coffee is not too overpronounced and the bittersweetness from the chocolate balances nicely any spikes in flavor that the coffee might bring. There's a great amount of balance and harmony going on in between these two ingredients and together they are making this an even better beer.

M: full bodied with some astringency, light carbonation as to be expected, no lingering flavors expect for the harshness of the roast bite which is incredibly subtle compared to other brews, but it washes down silently and adequetly.

O: i actually don't have any complaints expect that i would enjoy seeing the vanilla a bit more present in the palate, aside from that it's another excellent world class beer from Founder's!

It was one of my staples when I was done with work. Always a good drink thick head and smooth going down. I liked that they didn't try a hoppy with it. Haven't had a bad beer by them yet. Full body, dark. You could smell the malts right when they put it in front of you.

The perfect example of a breakfast stout. If you love coffee, you'll love this. It has a perfect blend of coffee and chocolate, but isn't too bitter or sweet. It has a heavy feel, like a good stout should (in my mind). I've tasted a few that were just a bit too light. Good work, Founders!
