I'm not sure if this bottle was overly carbonated or what but the cap popped of with force. Upon pouring couldn't keep the head tamed. A good tan 4 inch head exploded out of the bottle. Liquid is nearly black no light is penetrating any corner of crevice.

As always it seems, this dark founders brew has a near perfect nose. Big freshly ground coffee aromas, lovely roasted choclate malt, caramel, hints of vanilla, cassis, and a good hopped aroma to even it all out.

Tastes of cassis, mochiato, big roasted choclate and caramel malts, hint of vanilla bean, nice smooth chewy hops. Mouthfeel has a tad too much carbonation but it doesn't cause any harm. This bad boy is big and rich would be hard to drink more than a few.
