Served in a snifter

L - It is black and beautiful. It pours like motor oil. It is topped off with an inch of mocha head.

S - I smell cocoa, milk chocolate, and faint coffee and maple.

T - It starts out with cocoa flavors. Then enters the milk and dark chocolate. It finishes with a slight coffee bitterness.

M - Sticky, smooth, and full.

O - This is a great beer. Why did Founders retire it? It is a great beer to celebrate my 40th birthday.

Bottle from 2011. Smooth and sweet. Much more so than KBS.
