Pours a jet black color with a very foamy, long-lasting white head. Smells of roasted malts. Taste is sweet roasted malts and some lightly bitter chocolate. Goes down smooth and cold. Makes me think of a sweeter, fuller version of Guinness. Very good.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
