This is one of the best beers I have ever had. I am lucky enough to be from Grand Rapids so it is very easy for me to access this beer because of being a nitro tap, it is hard to find other places. It appears to be a very dark beer, but because of the nitro, it is very light and smooth with a very rich taste and and a slight taste of oatmeal. It's definitely a good winter beer.

Beautiful stout, but I had issues getting a decent head when pouring.

This one is a winner. Pours a midnight black with a dark tan head that fades quickly. Smells a little sweet with burnt characteristics. Taste is similar but amazingly smooth. I have never had a beer this smooth. The only thing close was Murphy's Stout, but this is up a notch. The taste was great as well as the mouthfeel. This beer was like velvet across the palette. I enjoyed it very much. I could drink these at any time, a very versatile beer. Go to founders and pick one of these up! Delicious!

Enjoyed at the brewery after a few samples of the higher gravity beers there.

First impressions are important, and the first one this beer made for me was smoooth!

Came to the table a nearly jet-black with a nice creamy tan head. An inviting looking beer.

Aroma is roast, chocolate and a touch of coffee.

Taste is spot on for an oatmeal stout....creamy, malty, with the dark and roast coming through very nicely.

This is a beer to enjoy and enjoy again...at 4.2%, you can drink a few and really appreciate this fine beer...hopefully, with some fine friends.

I think this is an outstanding stout. It pours a fantastic brown head that is very thick dense and creamy. This body of the beer is black. It is so smooth. Coffee, chocolate, creamy. I really love this beer. The flavor is not overwhelming or over the top, all the edges are very smooth. Overall, great beer and at five percent you can afford to tip back a few.

Drank this on-tap at the source in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours dark, nearly black in color. Small head. Its a smooth, easy-drinking, tasty beer. One of my go-to beers when I'm at Founder's Brewery, but I dont think I've ever bought this in bottled form.
