My taste buds were not happy with this one. Could taste the chocolate and a strong coffee flavor.

Big taste and a great beer that is widely available. Had one at The Radler in Chicago served in a over-sized Founder's coffee mug. Great go to beer if selection is limited.

Founders makes great beer. Although I do like this beer think I like founders porter more. The middle taste i get from this is a tad off. But......i am just being picky. If you want to try this beer then go for it. You won't regret it at all. Has a good chocolate coffee taste.

Nice chocolate/coffee taste, not sure what I don't like about this one, the aftertaste or feel?

Overall 94/100

A huge robust stout that is well rounded. Has massive notes of coffee upfront and dark mocha like chocolate on the finish. Very silky smooth and pleasant to drink. It's no shock that this is one of my all time favorite beers. Coffee, Chocolate and Beer are great things~
