3.58/5 rDev -20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle into pint glass
A: Extremely dark brown almost black, thin tan head that lingers nicely and settles into a crisp foam ring.
S: All coffee, roasted espresso, little bit of dark chocolate in the background
T: Wow, flavor explosion. Much more to it than the smell lets on. Starts out with lots of roasted coffee, then as it lingers you get the dark chocolate notes and more roasty-ness. Slight warming alcohol as it sits on the palate.
M: Good carbonation, well balanced. Finishes very smooth and lingers on the tongue with coffee flavors for quite awhile, almost like a dry wine.
O: For me personally seems to be less than the sum of its parts. Good look, smell, mouthfeel but overall i'm not in love with it and certainly wouldn't rate it as high as some others on, or even as high as other Founders brews i've had. Perhaps because i'm not a coffee drinker, but something was lost on me here. A solid brew, but I won't order it at a bar.
