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

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!
