On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours a deep brown with a nice airy light tan head. Roasty malt aroma and smooth roasty coffee flavor with cocoa and vanilla, kind of that classic oatmeal stout blend. A pretty nice one.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a large foamy dark tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was chocolate, vanilla, a bit of coffee and a touch of roasty malts. The flavor was roasty, dry and bitter with notes of coffee, cream and a hint of chocolate. Long dry, roasty and bitter finish. Medium body. Ok.

An amazing, light stout. All the typical founders dark beer flavors without the abv or weight. That being said, still has a nice, full body.

Tap at Macgregors. Dark pitch black with a fine, tan, nitro-looking head. Dry roasty nose, dark chocolate, cream. Smooth nitro silk body. Great balance. Smooth and tasty, mildly roasty with cocoa.

Black pour, medium brown head.
Roasty milky sweet aroma. Flavor was sort of weak and roasty. A little unpleasant. Mouthfeel was pretty thin. Not great.

Black beer. I put it in a growler from nitro so there was no head or lace when I poured or drank it. The aroma is more roasted malt and less oatmeal. The flavor has a little more oaty character and its quite nice. The body is a bit thin, cool, and mellow but the finish is rich and roasty.

Wow... this is the easiest drinking stout i have ever had. Very enjoyable for me but may not satisfy a big beer desire. But in my case the glass was empty before i new it - which is a good thing.
