A fine companion to end a meal or relax in front of the hearth with, this robust ale will cellar well for years. Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley this stout is extremely smooth, complex and rich in body. We recommend serving at cellar temperature. Sit back and enjoy its richness and complexity, you’re about to drink the ultimate winter warmer.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Jet black with a small mocha head that dissipates to a film. Smells of chocolate, roasted malts, and spent coffee grounds. Taste is super smooth, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Dark chocolate dominates with slight coffee undertones. Some nice hoppy bitterness in there as well. Mouthfeel is medium which is tricky because it looks thicker than it is. Really enjoyed this offering from Founders and I am glad I have another bottle.

15/20 really thick syrupy, very powerful but coffee overwhelms it a little bit. It's good, I enjoyed it but it lacks some of the complexities of other imperial stouts. Far away from the quality of KBS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

delnoche (505) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - OCT 16, 2016
12fl oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Opaque with a small brown cap. Aroma is raisins and alcohol. Flavor is strong roasted malt, dark fruits, alcohol burn. This beer is thick enough to chew. Long lasting, deeply bitter finish. Leaves your mouth sticky. This is a slow drinker. Excellent dessert beer that would be perfect on a cold winter night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
