I may be biased, because I’m of the opinion that Founders doesn’t make bad beer, but this beer is very good. You can smell the coffee before you take a sip, and though it is bitter, it’s still smooth. The bitterness calms down a bit as you get through the glass. It’s roasty with dark chocolate notes. Really, everything I want in an imperial stout. Nice job, Founders.
