Amazing beer! Mix it with Dirty Bastard for "Dirty Oats" and you will be amazed! Soooo good! This beer is dark, has a chocolate and coffee flavor, high percent, tastes great! Only possible problem is it is a filling beer but with the high percent you don't need to drink much!

One of the best stouts on the market. The smell is extraordinary and the taste backs it up. If you like coffee and chocolate, you’ll like this beer

This one sets the standard for stouts. Chocolate, Coffee, sweeeeeeetness. It is "that stout I have been looking for." 5/5 as far as stouts go! Good job Founders BC.

For a non-barrel aged stout it's about as good as it can get when drunk fresh. I've had this beer with some age in it and coffee and chocolate fades leaving a harsh alcohol bite. But when drunk fresh it is super creamy with flavors of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and oats along with a gentle dose of smoked malts. Can barely taste alcohol and is quite delicious. Only complaint is I wish it got shipped in late November vs October. October is still a bit warm and this would be perfect to drink in the winter morning watching the snow fall but by the time that happens it's no longer fresh and therefore won't taste as delicious.
