Pours a dark brown, burnt red tinted body with a slightly off-white head, medium sized, that reduced quickly.

Smells of boozy, caramel malts with some roast. Sweet dough as well, with a small hint of hoppy bitterness and earthy undertones. Very sweet smelling.

Taste is dominated by sweet caramel and roasted malts. Alcohol coated dark fruits, with that earthy undertone, and a tiny bit of hops. Some smoke also.

Mouthfeel is smooth as anything, full bodied, with all the flavors attacking. Coating. Boozyness is a good aspect of this brew.

Drinks better as it warms - becomes a little bit more complex. Yet another great beer from Founders.
