served from bottle into a tulip. deep ruby red color with very little head or lacing. first smell that hits is phenol alcohol followed by roasted malts with some dark fruits and a little bit of estery yeast. very little hop bitterness in the middle but mainly rum soaked dark fruits, rye bread some small roasted flavors and fruity esters.
overall a primo example of the style esp. for being a year round offering. very hard to beat for the price

Founders comes out with yet another truly fantastic beer. I had this at a beer tasting party held with a couple of my friends, 8/14/2013.
Appearance: This brew pours thickly into the glass to come up with a two fingered head. The fluffy head settles down to a paper thin lacing. The brown amber color is quite pretty. Some may say it is a mud brown color, but it does have a reddish tint to it that sets it apart.
Smell: A bit estery maybe. I couldn't detect any fruits that I usually catch in other Wee Heavies. The nose is really the downfall of this beer. Thankfully the rest made up for it.
Taste: Mmmmm, malty sweet goodness flows through the mouth. Fantastic barley taste with maybe a hint of something else, maybe not. Roasted malt flavor then arrives to follow the sweetness, and the brew finishes with undertones of subtle hops.
Mouthfeel: Little carbonation with a medium body gives a good delivery for the beer. Smooth enough to drink easily but not a highlight of the brew.
Overall: I quite liked this beer. Not a highlight of all beers, but a great beer as far as Wee Heavies go. I known I will be sharing in the future with others. Definitely a reason to respect Founders.
