Part of a sampler at Founders.

Appearance: Black with a brown head. Pretty good lacing. Would look nice in a pint.

Smell: Ash and roastiness. The ash sort of aroma threw me off a bit just because I wasn't expecting it, but it's nice. Am I drinking the same beer as others here? Doesn't seem that way.

Taste/feel: Nice body. Not too heavy. Roastiness with the coffee. Some dark chocolate. The ash is a bit strong on the aftertaste, and was a turn off for others I was with. Reasonable amount of bitterness. A pretty big stout overall. Well crafted.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this at Founders. It was poured from a Nitro tap into a pint glass.

Pours really dark with a mocha head that looked so creamy from the nitro. Lacing followed the whole way down.

It smells like your average stout with a little hop nose and roasted malt with a tinge of coffee,

It's a really good stout. A great example for the style. Really good roasted malt flavor and little smokiness. Some coffee and chocolate notes come through, but sublte. There is also a little hop presence that I really like in a stout.

The mouthfeel is thick and creamy due to the Nitro. Great!

I expected nothing less from Founders. My favorite brewery, making great beers!

Serving type: nitro-tap
