Part of a sampler at Founders.

Appearance: Black with a brown head. Pretty good lacing. Would look nice in a pint.

Smell: Ash and roastiness. The ash sort of aroma threw me off a bit just because I wasn't expecting it, but it's nice. Am I drinking the same beer as others here? Doesn't seem that way.

Taste/feel: Nice body. Not too heavy. Roastiness with the coffee. Some dark chocolate. The ash is a bit strong on the aftertaste, and was a turn off for others I was with. Reasonable amount of bitterness. A pretty big stout overall. Well crafted.
