4.05/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: Amber, reddish brown color with about 1/3 finger head. ok amount of lacing. Cloudy body. Looks quite good!

S: Malt, toffee maybe, caramel. Not quite strong.

T: Caramel, dark chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruits, slight bitterness in the middle for a quick second, It has a bit of that Founders signature taste upfront and towards the end. I can taste the booze a little bit at the end.

M: Not sure... I think this may be too thin? carbonation seems to be there up front but quickly disappears... beer starts off quite nice then suddenly everything disappears. Hard to describe, but not too flattering, imo.

O: Great looks and tastes, but not so much on the smell and feel. I somewhat enjoyed the bottle, but won't be looking for more in the future.

Great coffee notes on this extremely flaverfull full bodied ale. Lots of layers of malt balanced with just the right amount of hops. It seems as if there is another flavor picked up with your first five to ten sips. Is that chocolate? A little caramel? Some coffee? Delicious, Go Beer!

Serving type: on-tap
