4.28/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a flute.
Appearance: Superior jet black, head was literally almost none. 1/10 of an inch (dark tan). Not really bubbly lack of carbonation is pretty evident.
Smell: Dark chocolate, and coffee bean. You put the glass down and you can still smell it.
Taste: Tastes like it smells, f'n good. Why it is hard to rate it a notch more is maybe the lack of carbonation but really mouth and taste sometimes go hand in hand.
Mouth: This beer is lightly carbonated, doesn't mean it is bad. It is not that hard to swallow and crisp taste just really sticks to you.
Overall: Put on your seatbelts and grab yourself your favorite beer glass and indulge in one of the finest beers period. Not full of bubble but full of crisp fresh and might I add incredible flavor. If there is one not I would do is maybe slightly more carbonated....screw it, it tastes excellent. Cheers to all!

From a bottle into a pint glass. Had this one about a month. I wanted to wait until I could enjoy it for a while after the kids went to bed. Here goes
A: absolutely pitch black. A thin layer if dark brown head that sticks around for a while. Thin lace as the foam recedes.
S. An absolutely mouth watering combo of dark chocolate, malts, and raisins. I could literally smell this beer all day. I can't wait to get that first sip.
T: I had this beer at 59 degrees out of my beer cellar. The tast follows the smell exactly. The best I can say is Hershey's dark chocolate and an oatmeal raisin cookie all in one!
M: full flavor coats the mouth completely but still really easy drinking!
O: the only markdown I gave this beer was in appearance because I like I bit more head on my beer. Honestly after drinking it I feel guilty for even that small markdown! Bottom line...buy this beer!

2 Complaints - Only served in 12 ounce glass. Availability. Founders has yet to disappoint me. With ABV this high one might expect this might not be smooth, aou contraire (probably spelled wrong) Yummy and very drinkable! Car service should be included with purchase of 3 or more.
Serving type: on-tap
