355ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.

From a trade with Stevedore.

A: Pours a deep black oiled color forming a big, thin bubbled and creamy brown head. Medium retention and tons of lingering lacings left in the glass. A thin layer just remains forever in the top

S: Strong roasted malts upfront. Very earthy. Followed by strong notes of dark chocolate and dark fruits. Wood and earth. A bit booze in the end

T: Sweet and roast upfront. Very earthy! Very biscuity too. Strong notes of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, licorice and dark fruits. Intense bitter end. Perfect taste

M: Heavy and creamy body. Medium carbonation. Great roasted and bittersweet aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Just another Founders masterpiece. Thanks Steve!!!

Thick toasted Carmel, almost like the best toasted marshmallow you have ever had in your life. The sweetness of the beer disguises the alcohol you will soon be filling. I have drank a lot of imperial stouts and this is in my top three! I suggest you shares four pack with someone who likes good ale at a time when you can truly enjoy this great beer!
