If you like porters and stouts, then you are going to like this. It is everything you want out of a dark beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Black, small head. Not off to a good start.

Smell: Mild sweetness with some coffee and chocolate.

Taste: Nice roasted sweetness, full mouthfeel. Dark chocolate flavor, and then a bit of smoked meat flavor shows up.

Overall: I had never tried this flagship from Founders so picked up a single. It was not old, but didn't quite hit the mark with me. The smoked meat flavor that showed up was interesting but not enough for me to rate this better than GL Edmund Fitz or others.
