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.

Pours silky and rich, pitch black. No way you're seeing through the glass with this tasty chocolate, hoppy, coffee blend stress reliever. The coffee blend compliments the chocolate well once it hits your nose. Just let the next drink rest in the back of your mouth and breath through your nose, phenomenal! This gives you the full hop you need, coming from a long time IPA fan. The only downfall for this beer is that it is olny a seasonal, as I have wiped out every store in our city:) That was in May! I would love to be able to purchase this year-round! Cheers To Founders!

First actual review and I am. It a beer connoisseur however this is one of the smoothest stouts I've had. No bitter aftertaste.
