A- Pitch black pour with a light tan. No noticable lacing.

S- Oats, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee.

T- Oats come through a lot, followed by some bitter coffee, chocolate and roasty malt flavors to finish.

M- Somewhat syrupy, low carbonation, leaves a nice roasty aftertaste.

O- Great stout, good flavors, heavy on the oats, excellent.

An elusive top 50 bottle, finally obtained. Deep black colored pour, no head really. Aroma is richly laden with coffee, reminiscent to me of Peche Mortel. Real espresso aroma, some roast grain and a bit of dark chocolate. Taste is well balanced, good mix of the malty sweetness and cold bitter coffee for something approximately right down the middle point flavor-wise. Alcohol is well hidden, palate is well adjusted, medium carbonation for a very full body. Tasty stuff, one of the better Founders beers for sure.
