I want to like it. I'm supposed to like it. Everyone likes it! Except I'm not that into it. It's not you, it's me. I'm just not into the charred/burnt coffee thing and bitter finish. Guess I'm a sweet stout guy... BUT I still always buy you when I see you Founders BS - maybe it's better when it's first released. I always get it like 7 months into the year. I will keep trying you though...I will never give up!

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Strong coffee and cocoa smell. Nice lacing and not too heavy, the taste is of cocoa, some maltiness and roasted coffee. Overall a good stout.

This and Ten Fidy are easily my two favorite stouts that are easily attainable.
