Yes I know this shows as a "Retired" beer, and I show that it's on tap. I got to enjoy this beer at the 2012 Founders "Black Party". What a GREAT beer! I am such a hop head first and Stout lover second that the mix of both just makes me LOVE this beer!
This beer pours as dark as any stout out there, no light shines through. Had a thin head by the time it got to me, but continued to leave a nice lacing on the way down the mug.
The nice bitterness hits you right at the first taste! Carbonation is king, and this didn't disappoint. The mouthfeel was fantastic!
So sad that this is a retired beer and who knows how long before I can taste it again. Luckily it was still on tap the Wed after the Black Party...
