Pours the consistency of milk, jet black with a brown head that is thick and very creamy, nice lacing
Sweet chocolate and caramel invites the nose followed by a hint of alcohol, smells just like dessert. The aromas are very easy to pick up an so pleasant
Chocolate, malty sweetness followed by a crisp hop bitterness to remind me that this is a beer
Full bodied, coates with the sweetness then finishes with a little hop aftertaste and a hint of warmness from from the alcohol
This is a great beer, must be consumed slowly and enjoy all night, can't wait for next years version!

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.
