A great stout. This is not too sweet which I like in a stout. I think I would probably go with Founders Imperial Stout as I remember it being just as good, maybe better, which is impressive at a higher abv. It would be interesting to try them side by side. But can't go wrong with FBS.

12 oz bottle. I love almost everything by founders. This stout however is just too hoppy for me. The taste is huge coffee, bitter hops, and roasted malt.
