Tasted from bottle. Black in color with a dark brown head. Incredible aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, oak, molasses. Taste is a mixture of dark chocolate and coffee with slight smokey notes. Very smooth and hides the high ABV incredibly well. Full bodied with a sticky heavy mouthfeel at first giving way to a dry feeling. Taste really lingers on palate. This and Bells Expedition are the 2 best non BA stouts I've had. Very very well done.

Great breakfast stout. Oatmill and coffee mix. Founders knows stouts without question. Very dark. Smells like coffee. Extremely smooth. No complaints....
