Dark black pour with creamy brown head. Nose is heavy coffee, the most I've ever encountered in a beer! I love stout and I love coffee, so this thing is kind of a no-brainer. The flavor doesn't disappoint. Found myself thinking I should add cream and sugar. This is one serious coffee stout!

My taste buds were not happy with this one. Could taste the chocolate and a strong coffee flavor.

Big taste and a great beer that is widely available. Had one at The Radler in Chicago served in a over-sized Founder's coffee mug. Great go to beer if selection is limited.

Founders makes great beer. Although I do like this beer think I like founders porter more. The middle taste i get from this is a tad off. But......i am just being picky. If you want to try this beer then go for it. You won't regret it at all. Has a good chocolate coffee taste.
