4.6/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured an opaque body with a thin brown lid.
The smell is obvious coffee, roasted malts, french vanilla ice cream, and rich caramel sauce and understated oak.
The flavor profile is very similar to the aroma. Coffee and bitter chocolate lead the parade. Alcohol presence is strong but bourbon flavor could have been so much more IMHO. Vanilla, licorice and burnt sugar add to the robust flavor. The finish is long and dry and full of roasted coffee.
THe feel falls short of perfection due to the slight lack of body. Lower spectrum of carbonation, very smooth and slicky but unfortunately just a tad too thin.
Founders may be the best in the biz when it comes to big cofee stouts and this is no exception.
