Poured from a bottle into a Gordon Biersch 0.41l glass.

Appearance- Pitch black with some sediment floating around. One fingered fluffy caramel head. Nice Lacing.

Smell- Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, tinge of alcohol.

Taste- Coffee first, then bitter chocolate at the end. Coffee lingers on the palate. Slight hoppy presence. No alcohol.

Mouthfeel- Incredible. Coats the mouth very nicely. Perfect carbonation.

Overall- It's easy to see why this beer is rated so highly. It really is a perfect stout.

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

Appearance: Black as coal and a fine topping of kahki head sits atop the inky depths below.

Aroma: Espresso roast and dark chocolate with some sweet malt.

Taste: Full on flavor explosion of char roast malt, fresh coffee backed by sweet chocolate. Some noticaeble alcohol. Almost fudge-like taste combines with the coffee and some sweet cream. Bitter aftertaste that is pleasant and bittersweet dark chocolate lingers on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Full, chewy body from the oatmeal and light carbonation.

Overall: A world-class stout that is my current favorite in this category. Well done Founders.
