Got this a Crunchy's, was served in a pint, off nitro tap.

A: Is a opaque black color, with burgundy tinges with a lasting tan head along with good amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of chocolate, barley, malts, toffee, oatmeal, coffee, spices, herbs, woods

T: Tastes delicious, oatmeal is quite present in addition to the coffee, toffee, barley, malt flavors. Has an earthy feel to it.

M: Full bodied beer with medium carbonation, very robust and fulfilling.

O: Overall this was good beer, though I enjoyed Founder's other stouts more than this one, but its a stand up brew. Recommended by me.

Had on tap at the Blue dog.
This stout came to me with a nice cascading head forming over the lushiously dark ale.
I would say at no point did the head fade below one finger and left sheets of lace on the glass.
I wasn't picking up much aroma but i was surprised at the amount of roasted malts there was.
The taste was roasted malts with some sutle hints of chocolate and coffee but mainly it was roasted that I noticed the most of.
Drink smooth and flat what with this being on nitro. Also it's quite dry and semi bitter with a gritty finish.
A little to roasted for me but good none the less.
