8oz. tap pour at Founders into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a thick & syrupy pitch black color that momentarily cascaded as it was pulled from the tap right in front of me. Produced a rather frothy & fluffy very light tan head with some good retention to it.

(S)- Tons of butterscotch, molasses, vanilla, toffee, and coffee. Man, this is rich & malty!

(T)- Very decadent & rich malted chocolate shake with toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, molasses, raisins, and caramel mixed into it. The slightest bitterness from hops, and a slight roasted component mixed into the various elements. Very sweet but is a rollercoaster of flavor. They said it was an old ale, but its really like that only combined with a stout and a barleywine put together; crazy!

(M)- Great carbonation level to it. Rather thick & very sweet tasting; its almost to the point of being too much, but not quite. This screams dessert beer in every sense.

(D)- A sipper meant to be savored after dinner as a special treat. Very sweet & rich but not in an off-sugary way; Tons upon tons of malts in this! I would love to see this bottled just so I could age it to see how it would change cause this has alot going for it, but it really fills you up with its thick & rich body. (1,245 characters)
