    Someone just said it was Devil's? Not sure. Tastebuds are about paralyzed at this point.

    Are there still pint glasses? What's your fav thus far?

    Fav....maybe KBS. Love it. Panther Cub is Fav new beer. I mentioned earlier, let it warm up a bit. Flavors come out after about 15 minutes. I love frangelic stout but couldn't really pick up the bourbon in it. Not sure if this was due to barrel duration (if it came out of the batch that was brewed in the past 6 months) or if the nitro mutes it.

    Looks to be boxes of glasses still by the door.

    Sad to report that after overhearing a staff member, there will not be CBS on tap for this party. I thought that would've been a given, but apparently not. They will be tapping another Devil's Cut KBS around 4 though. Will definitely be getting that, and highly recommend anyone else here to do so as well.

    Founders posted taplist had only Panther Cub and Doom as class-3 initially and FIS and FBS as class-2s Obviously there is quite a bit more that they didn't initially post. Anyone who would say they wouldn't be disappointed in that is simply lying to themselves. I'm here and the taplist is better than originally posted. But, like all BAs, I'm crying my eyes out that CBS hasn't been on tap all day. Forget Founders. They are so lame (unbelievable sarcasm going on here).
     
  9. I'm glad the tap list turned out as is it. I think I we can agree this is a pretty solid black party. I just don't like the crying about the tap list before the doors have even opened. Give them a chance. (We all know CBS is past it's prime)

    Fact or wishful thinking? Pretty sure it won't be, per my previous post.

    Didn't mean to sound dicky or complain about the taplist pre open. Just felt a little let down as they posted the whole taplist last year right away. CBS is a great beer but by no means the only Founders beer worth crying over. Solid tap lineup indeed. Can't wait to see what comes out in the next couple of hours.
     
  13. I agree with that. Lets hug it out later.

    They released a new batch in Nov. it's black beer party. I bet at 6pm it gets busted out. All in all wishful thinking.

    I'm back home already after a very fun time. Arrived right around 11am, but didn't make it through the doors until 11:45am or so. Headed outside and managed to make new friends from SE Michigan who had a table (right next to the Boba Fett sticker with a view of the new experimental tanks) and were soon joined by new friends from South Bend (who live under some weird Man Te T'eo cloud).

    My late 60's uncle and I tried a variety, staring with our free tier 1's of rye stout (undistinguished but tasty) and porter (x3 over time). Followed over the next several hours with Panther Cub, BA Frangelic, BA party stout, Black IPA, BA Black IPA, razzledazzle (or whatever it was) and my favorite, Devil's Own/Cut (Thought it was Own from our server but read Cut here, or vice-versa). KBS, Imperial, and Breakfast were all on as well but did not partake. Sad to leave shortly before the next release of Devil's at 4pm but could not mess with the wife transportation wagon.

    Very solid day, and props to the Founders crew for keeping things moving along and providing a very fun venue for amazing beer.

    KBS aged for 2 years rather than 1.

    Heading home now. Great time at the brewery as well as meeting kyleenk and GRDave and his wife. Devil's Cut KBS (which, as I understand it, is a 50/50 blend of this years KBS and 2011 KBS aged for two years) and Razzleberry Stout stole the show. IMO, much better party than last year up to this point. Will be interested to see what they bust out the rest of the day/night.

    How long is the wait to get in?
     
  21. Seemed like about 40 minutes to get in. Not bad at all.
     
  22. I thought Founders did well. I drank at least 32oz of the Devil's cut. 16 oz of the reg KbS. The Raz was great, the BA Frang was awesome, and I enjoyed the nitro oatmeal as my session beer.

    International breakfast stout just tapped. One of the best so far. Breakfast stout with hazelnuts. Amazing.

  24. Agreed, the International Breakfast Stout is so top notch, so much chocolate, but not super sweet, and very smooth.

    International breakfast stout was great. Devils cut is amazing. Drinking KBS and waiting to see if Devils Cut goes back on.

    85% Devils Cut, 15% Razzleberry Stout = Bramble BCBS on steroids.

    My Facebook check-in:

    I just pooped in the restroom at the bus stop and was heckled by 4 African-American gentlemen while in the stall. Upon stating my love of deadly weapons, nobody in the place looked me in the eye as I walked out gingerly. — at Founders Brewing Co - Tap Room.

    Founder's did a nice job with this year's party amongst the construction chaos. Great beers were on all day, and the rotating special beers were excellent. I would have liked to have waited around for the International Breakfast, but the two Devil's Cuts definitely ease that "pain". Solid event that should remind everyone that we are lucky to have Founder's.

    Had a great time, and I thought Founders hit it out of the park with their taplist today. Great to meet Matt (mjshearer1)...still owe you a beer. The Devils Cut was outstanding. Didn't care for the Intl breakfast stout, although wasn't expecting hazelnut. Was told that it was double coffee/chocolate. Too sweet for me. Cheers to Founders for a great party. Gonna stop by again on Sunday to fill some growlers with the left overs on tap....if there's any left

    International tasted like an expresso version of breakfast stout; didn't even taste hazelnut.

    Razzleberry came off around 5:30. Tasted like a mix of party stout and rubaeus. Good shit

    A little bit of razzleberry goes a long way. I put some (also read: "a little") in a glass of "Devil's Cut" and it was amazing!!!
