Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On nitro tap at Founders. Pours black with a thick nitro head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and an odd skunk-like aroma (odd in a tap beer, but it was there). Flavor of sweet roasted malt plus the odd skunk (less apparent but still there). It was very bland tasting -- not bad just bland. I was disappointed, as I had expected better from Founders but this is not one of their winners.

I'm big on Founders beers and their specialty stouts are among my favorites. Maybe I had high expectations when I finally made the trip up to grand rapids but that hasn't stopped me from being impressed by good beer at other brewery's. That being said I found this to be a very pretty yet bland beer. It had everything going for it but it tasted like a stout for the masses. And, the feel I got from the crowed and some other brewery only offerings was that they were trying to appeal to the masses. Not a lot of flavor I'm sure anyone who's favorite beer is Guinness Draught would think it's great but I'd take a Samuel Smith oatmeal stout any day over this.
