Founders Imperial Stout

On a recent visit to Al’s of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Founders Imperial Stout. The beer pours a black color with a foamy brown head with bits of lacing on the glass. The aroma is big on chocolate with generous helpings of toasted malts, nuts, cream, and coffee. The taste is dry with rich dark chocolate, a good roasted malt flavor, and a dry pine finish with a nice bitterness. The alcohol content is 10.5% ABV. This was a very rich beer with dark chocolate flavors and a great bitterness to offset the sweetness. Overall, it was very excellent and a top notch beer, one I think is a perfect example of the style.
