Had on tap at the Map Room. Poured black with ruby highlights and a thin head that settles to a ring and leaves some okay lacing. Smells roasty, slightly fruity, and with some juicyfruit gum aromas. Some spicy malt as well. Tastes slightly sweet and with a fruity cherry/citrus/prune topnote and a base of pecan pie. Slightly piney finish. Unusual and delicious, and not as sweet as it sounds. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly sweet, and the beer overall is quite rich. Nice, now if I could just find some Backwoods Bastard.

Had a couple of these at A Salt and Battery with some fish and chips.

It pours a dark chestnut with good lacing. The nose is interesting on this one, with some alcohol, wood, nutty caramel, vanilla, etc. Obviously malty. The taste evens out the sweetness with a comforting bitterness, and a smooth feel due to low carbonation (which I tend to love). As it warms, some dried, dark fruit flavors open up. Very easy to drink. Good offering from Founders.
