I love Founders, I have been wanting to try this forever and I finally got 6 bottles luckily!

So first off, believe it or not...the hype is actually true this is a phenomenal beer.

This pours out like a thick syrup and it completely pitch black almost like motor oil with a very small mocha, dark brown head.

The aroma is packed with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon and caramel.

The taste follows very much the same way. Right off the bat it's kinda sweet with the vanilla and caramel taste and then that fades to the chocolate and dark coffee with roasted malts and then finishes with a bourbon burn and a slight bitterness.

Extremely fully bodied and creamy, this is almost too easy to drink, but there is a definite alcohol burn. You can't really taste it as much, but you can definitely feel it. I'm letting 2 bottles age to see how this mellows out.

Another great beer from Founders!!
