Had this excellent brew a year or so ago but never reviewed it. Excited to find one on the shelf.
A: Pours very dark - about dark as oil. Dark brown head that lingers a while and leaves some nice skim. Doesn't get much better than this.
S: Roasted malt, caramel, booze, raisin, smoke,
T: Well....the first thing I detect is booze so aging is necessary here - not sure it was this hot last time I had it. Taste is cocoa, malt, smoke, coffee is strong, very good but the booze is a factor.
M: Nice balance - thick, even a bit chewy.
D: Unfortunately, this one isn't ready yet. I'm going to sip on it and I'm sure my night will be good after I'm done with it.
Overall great offering from Founders - in all honesty - I don't think it needs to be this big though. 9% would be probably perfect.
