Pours very thick and dark. A thin dark brown head. I bought this beer while on vacation and saved it until I got home. This beer has a very rich taste. I taste chocolate and coffee right off the bat. The fact it is aged in an oak barrel and has a high alcohol content gives it that extra flavor you don't find in most stouts. I really enjoyed this beer.

Founders has proven to be one solid brewery! Take one awesome breakfast stout, throw it in Bourbon barrels and the result is amazing! The taste of coffee, with a bourbon finish is something that I don't think I would ever get tired of. I wish that this was more readily available, and that you could find it at any point in the year, and not on just one or two days depending on where it is being released.
