Tasted at a tap takeover in Boston in a tulip glass. Slightly disappointed. I have such high expectations from Founders that when they disappoint, it's surprising. Too strong on the nose and a bitter mouth-feel. Really hot and unbalanced taste and way too much smoke, which ended up coming off much too astringent and band-aid like. The finish was nice, but just too much going on that wasn't well integrated in the glass -- even knowing this was supposed to be a heavy smoked porter. Maybe it softens a little with age??
