3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro draft to pint at Founders. Looks good; settles into a slightly translucent dark cola with creamy off-white nitro head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, roast, and a touch of oats. Tastes like it smells with what seems like a touch of smoke as well. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Decent, but overrated IMO.

Draft. Black with a tight mocha head. Aroma is char and roasted malt. The taste follows and adds a hint of earthy hops on the finish. Smooth creamy feel. Incredibly clean finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(nitro @ Founders Brewing Company - Grand Rapids, MI) Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Very lightly roasted aroma, not much hint of oatmeal. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light roast but not much oatmeal or chocolate. A bit mild and thin.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Draught > Libertine Bar. Taste fine, palate is great but it's just too small. I don't need a 9% stout but 4.5% is just too small.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: Bakers’ chocolate and medium roast coffee nose. Black, medium tan head, cascading carbonation, good lacing. Soil with very subtle moss and coffee notes. Creamy, but a tad astringent. Founders does nitrogenated beers very well, perhaps the best in the US. This beer would not be nearly as good on CO2.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially strong raisin but then turns mellow and mild with notes of cookies, coffee, and chocolate. It pours a dark brown black with a tan, big soapy head that reduces to a thick ring with a messy surface, and it leaves a messy lace. The taste is a medium sweet with a very light bitter. The texture is thin, with a medium-light body, and a smooth, creamy carbonation. The flavors are mostly a coffee chocolate blend with some grains at the finish and a roasted note as well. It?s pretty clean and kinda dry with a light cookie-like linger to the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Glass Nickel. The steady creamy beige head accentuates the soft mouthfeel. Coffee, cocoa. A touch more depth than a typical nitro Stout. Classic. Well done.
