I'm still a little new to stouts and the craft world in general but this is amazing. Has to be one of the best beers I have ever had. For sure the best stout, but I still need to try Goose Island Bourbon County. The chocolate and coffee in this beer are so balanced. Just enough of each. And its just enough bitterness to complement. Awesome.

Updated Review:
This is still one of the best stouts out there. It's easily accessible, which makes it a go to beer for me. Most prefer to drink this one fresh because of the coffee, but it's still drinking good with over 5 months of age on it. I do think the coffee has mellowed a bit, so I would rather have it fresh. The mouthfeel to this beer is amazing; so smooth and creamy (thanks to the oats). This beer is really a work of art. The flavors are so well integrated, and it's an easy to drink brew. I do think I prefer founders imperial stout over this one, but that might be my favorite beer ever.. So all in all, this is a must try for every beer lover out there, regardless if you're even a fan of stouts (this one could change your mind).
