Le nez et l’arrière-goût est ce qui se rapproche le plus de la founders breakfast stout. Les notes de chocolat noir et de café au lait affluent sans retenu dans un corps onctueux et riche. Une concoction réussie.

Bottle with Vincent and others. Pours black with thin beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, spruce, pine, and earthiness. Fairly sweet and a little hot with a bitter finish. A lot of hop flavor for a stout, balanced by the coffee.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at a friends house while watching Anaconda, for some reason. Appearance is moderately thick pitch black with a rich frothy white head. Aroma its very bitter coffee and chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, very light sweetness. Taste is fantastic. Rich dark chocolate, hazelnut, and vanilla notes, utterly rich coffee profile, more of an espresso richness. Vanilla is pure and doesn’t taste like extract was used, more like vanilla beans were integrated. This brewery does great things with imperial stouts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle shared thanks to JohnGonk. Pours pitch black color with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some dark fruits, and faint coffee notes. Taste of sweet caramel and roasted malts, vanilla, ash, and dark chocolate. Not bad, but too sweet for my liking. Maybe be better with more age.
