The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

Bottle. Pours and looks like motor oil, thick and black with a thin brown head. Smoky, coffee aroma is strong but not especially noteworthy. Flavor is unbelievably strong...Sweet chocolate coats the tongue for a second and then bursts into a huge hazelnut coffee flavor...a bitterness begins to develop and as the tongue reacts to the bitterness a second more roasted coffee taste dominates. Long aftertaste. Ive never had a beer where multiple flavor stages were so distinct and perceptable but if you dont like coffee the flavor of this beer can wear out. Still Founders should be proud of the refinement of this beer.

Scents of licorice and coffee. Pours dark red-black. Thin tan head and good lacing. Dry sweet tastes of licorice with alcohol notes. Short astringent finish. More than average carbonation for a stout. Quite nice.

From tap at Dunkbar. Pours very dark. The head is very dense and looks delicious. Smells of sweet coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits. Taste of bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Overall a very good beer that reminds me of cozy sunday mornings.

Pretty good stout, a really good example of Founders dominance of the style. Pretty dark black color, rusty and dark brown head: pretty dense, creamy. Aroma is intense roasted malts, some alcohol and a little bit of chocolate. Taste is superb; a totally balanced flavour, good mix of sweetness and bitterness. Roasted malts are dominant, average hop quantity. Full body, dense but with a very smooth and pleasant texture. Carbonation is low. Overall, a very good example of the genre.
