Good Beer! Not huge on coffee stout beers BUT this one is nice and smooth. It has a dark color to it. You can smell and taste the cofee beans. Again it's nice and smooth as it goes down and it's doesn't have to much of an over-whelming taste of the coffee beans. I think it's just right.

Simply a fantastic sipping stout. This feels thick and delicious while drinking; I could see this as being very fulfilling on a cold winter's day.

A: Black with a very slight tan head.

S: Chocolate covered coffee beans rolled in yeast extract... Marvelous aroma.

T: This is a relatively sweet beer, the chocolate comes off strong in the beginning but a coffee flavor finishes each sip. The blend and transition is done quite well, neither flavor overpowers other but actually components each other in a pleasant way.

M: This is a smooth beer; the carbonation is laid back but still present to give the mouth a little zip. Nice balance between effervescence and creaminess. Well done Founders.

O: I will certainly be passing this out to other beer connoisseurs.
