Thanks to Boxcar01 for the trade...
Poured from the 12oz bottle into a tulip. No head whatsoever with just a little lacing. Color is a cloudy, muddy brown.
Smell is mostly sweet malt. Some oak as well. A dark fruit smell backs up the sweetness perfectly. Pleasant smell, but not overpowering by any means.
Lots of caramel on the palate. A nice smooth oak flavor on the front of the tongue. There is no hop flavor but a solid bitterness hits the side of your tongue with every sip. Some bitter cocoa works it's way in as the beer warms. The dark fruit in the nose is a little more noticeable in the taste. Fairly complex, but not too exciting.
Carbonation is perfect. Mouthfeel is very smooth, almost creamy. Perfect carbonation. The failry high ABV% isn't noticeable at all, a definite plus. A solid beer and glad I got to try it via trade but not something I would purchase if Founders were available around here.
