Poured into goblet. This has a nice deep red maroon depth with a gold 2 finger that laces the glass thoroughly while you drink. I smell some grains and hops on the nose; there's and underlying whiff of dark dry fruits. This has a nice crisp beginning, maybe some rye, alpha hops, grain....sweet malts, raisins, plum, a nice dry finish with bitterness from the hops. I have to say im very pleased how well this brew is balanced, and wonderful on the pallet from start to finish. I can almost feel the compassion and friendship that went into this beer for Founders' dear friend.
This is a wonderfully created brew, the alcohol is well masked and integrated into the beer. Well done, wonderful red, one of the best (if not the best) I've had.
