Poured from a bottle into an oversized Duvel tulip.
Appearance- pure black, with an inch of slowly developing head. I will never drink this beer in a different glass again! Beautiful stout!
Smell- Lots of chocolate, roast, and coffee with a hint of alcohol, very inviting.
Taste- Very true to the aroma, though the alcohol is very well hidden.
Mouthfeel- Thick mouthfeel, I am aware that I'm drinking a big beer, but my palate can handle at least another beer after this one.
Overall- Excellent beer. If Founders made this a brewery only release with a gimmicky name, it would be among the most discussed beers on this site. However, I am much happier knowing that I can grab this bad boy off the shelf for 3 months of the year. If you like stouts, you will like this one!
