Poured into pint.
A - Pitch black. Massive brown, bubbly head. A look that says, "Drink me, often."
S - Wonderful, chocolatey, coffee flavors.
T - Rich, chocolate flavors, fair amount of bitterness, smooth. Alchohol present but very midly so. A nice balance of flavors.
M - Creamy, rich, yet not too heavy. Very easy to drink (maybe too much so for my own good).
O - Another outstanding beer from Founders. Glad this is easily available now. I'll be buying more. While the bitterness may be a bit more than FBS, the rich and creamy taste and body keep it "all good." Pick some up. If you don't, I will.

It was presented to me black with about a finger of brown head. Smelling it, I get a lot of roasted grains with chocolate, charred wood with a hint of smoke, some coffee, and a slight hop aroma. The taste is much more chocolate-forward. It has a dark chocolate and cocoa powder profile carrying a vein of caramel, with a creamy, full mouthfeel throughout. It finishes with a roasty burnt oat taste with a manageable level of astringency.

4.69/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Out of the 12 fl. oz. bottled 1/6/14. Sampled on April 22, 2014.
The pour is deep jet black with a dark brown head that fades some but leaves lacing clinging to the side of the glass.
The aroma is bold with chocolate and dark roasted malts, a hint of dark fruit, a little smoke, and earthy hops that are played down.
The body is bold and creamy.
The taste also brings out the dark rich malty character with a biting early bitterness roaring up from behind and leading to a dry finish. This is about as luscious as an Imperial Stout can be. Definitely a beer to return to and the price is reasonable.
