Poured from a bomber into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with friends.
Thanks to Phyl21ca for the bottle!

Pours a clear brown with a short bubbly mocha head with a bit of lace. The nose is of nutty malts and alcohol. On the palate, the beer is again dominated by sweet nutty flavors from malts or extract syrups(?); as loads of sweet caramel malt, butterscotch, milk chocolate. Medium-light body and nice carbonation leaves it a bit thin. Overall, it tasted a bit thin, sweet and a little out of balance.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: Poured a light brown color ale with a medium size light brown foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of nutty liquor is quiet dominant with some overly sweet notes also identifiable. Tasted is dominated by the sweet fake nutty flavours with some overly sweet notes. Body is light with good carbonation. I didn’t appreciate the nutty liquor flavours and thought the beer was too sweet for my taste.

Poured into a tulip style glass. Came to a nice head, but not as high as I would have expected.
Very nice color, mild lacing. Could smell the hazelnut, which is flavor of Dunkin Donuts coffee
that I usually would pick. Nice tasting beer with just a hint of a little bitterness. Shared this with
a friend and we both gave it high marks for overall appeal. Its a beer that I would buy again.
There really hasn't been a Founders beer that I've had that I would not rate as a great beer.
Very dependable brewer that I have used in my group tastings in the past. Can't miss beer.

750ml bottle. 2012 vintage. into a FW teku glass.

dark, murky brown color with a slight head. the smell is very aromatic with roasty coffee and sweet caramel. hazelnuts are also still present. the taste has a bit of coffee, bit of sweetness...tastes kind of like an old school fountain drink. quite tasty. medium bodied, low carbonation. moderately drinkable.

overall pretty good! hard to drink a whole 750 alone but good once.
