12 oz. bottle purchased locally, ($12.00/4). Bottled on 12/15/11, 21 days ago. Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Very dense, dark brown with 3/4" dense, light brown head that settles slowly and leave irregular lacing. No visible effervescence.

S: Roasted coffee and malts, with bittersweet chocolate; some earthiness and licorice.

T: Chocolate, caramel/toffee and coffee; molasses; some alcohol and lingering bitterness.

M: Low carbonation and heavy body; very rich, smooth and creamy; somewhat viscous; dry finish; slight alcohol heat.

O: Another delicious, amazing stout from Founders. Right up there with their other offerings.
