Live tasting 12 oz. bottle into Duvel tulip...
Appearance; pours a deep dark brown out of the bottle, that becomes black in the glass with cola edges... Single finger head falls exceptionally quickly, leaving nothing but a very thin ring of bubbles around the edges..
Smell; lots of roasty malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate...
Taste; quite similar to the smell, jumps right in with coffee and roasted malts, the caramel and chocolate are more subdued and quite nicely accent the roastiness... Medium finish with a nice lingering roasted malt/coffee flavor.
Mouthfeel; on the light side of full bodied, with a bit more carbonation than I would expect, but it definitely compliments the flavor and body of the beer... Slightly sticky, it hangs around a bit on the sides of the glass but nowhere near the extent of a beer like Ten Fidy...
Overall; a damn good beer! My second Founders experience, I've got a few more in the fridge and I can't wait to get into them!!
