My go to stout and the one by which all others are measured. Pretty near perfection.

Certainly an excellent stout. With a simple whiff the aroma of coffee and chocolate are there. The head has a creamy dark richness to it; and the flavor is bold but not overwhelming. The feel is one of relaxation. This is a stout truly deserving of its high rankings. And, just to say, I find that the more I drink Founders products the more I appreciate their brand.

Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Good retention and lacing. Smells of coffee and molasses primarily--strong and sweet. Tastes of bitter chocolate, slight coffee, roasted malts, molasses and a slight fruity sweetness that comes out as the beer warms. Chocolate lingers on the tongue. Thick mouthfeel but not too sticky, and low carbonation. A great stout, no question.
