look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I really wanted to side by side this with KBS so that I could really taste the difference, but the fact that it's so readily available now in DFW, heck I couldn't wait. In fact my people were telling me that they had so much of this that people were mixing it with pumpkin and old summer fruit beers... Heathens I say, but here we go..

The appearance is darn near perfect, unlike KBS which was so dark it was brown, this was so dark it was purple. Thin head, the most fragile of lacing, just a gorgeous brew.

The smell was dark burnt cocoa beans, roasted coffee beans, ground down, heated, cooled, then barreled to perfection and allowed to just grow with one another in a symphony of midnight burnt darkness. Just awesome!

That leads to a taste a bit strong for my palate though: taste and smoothness are my 2 factors that make something drinkable, but nonetheless this was still just a bit strong. Let this sit though, let it warm a bit, and it just gets that much more delicious.

All and all, I ain't sayin anything new here, but really this and KBS are the only 2 reasons I wanted, needed Founders in TX. The fact they set the table with all day, dirty bastard, centennial, and rubaeus (minus that lil KBS mistake/surprise in May ;) ) is all just gravy.

The western most state to get Founders is happy to have ya. Seek it, trade for it, any year in the past 3 will do.
