Heavy, creamy texture. Strong chocolate malt flavor. Goes down smooth. Would be good on nitro probably.

12oz bottle dated 12/28/17

Poured into a pint glass has a deep, dark, brown body allowing no light yet I can stare into it forever. A persistent thin cap of mocha colored bubbles leaves a running erratic lacing.

Roasty cocoa bean aroma dominates, but there are coffee beans as well and the flavor matches. Being picky, I would say there is a slight metallic taste in the middle.

Mouthfeel is smooth and finishes wet.

Overall, a standard bearer.

M: chewy and thick at the outset but becoming more smooth after time.

Overall: pretty good brew.

Dark rich colour and a deep mocha froth that has root beer float-like staying power. It's difficult to not compare to Guinness Stout being the staple for such dark brews, but I'd say this is smoother going down with a slight bite at the nutty, hoppy finish. Very good overall, though Dirty Bastard and Oatmeal Stout are the more impressive brews in the Founders line-up.
