12 oz bottle from Prufrock, thanks Dan! Pours a black color with a very voluminous beige head. Retention is great, as is the lacing.

Nose is crackery rye, sweet toffee and some crushed black pepper. Little bit of doughy yeast and chocolaty oxidation.

Taste is well done, typical Founders deliciousness. Coffee, rye bread, bakers chocolate and light red-grape fruitiness. It would seem this beer would be better fresh, but this still is pretty damn tasty. Mouthfeel and body are about medium and the beer displays very little sweetness. My 12 oz bottle is disappearing very fast, so drinkability must be pretty high!
