look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Drank from my Duvel Tulip. Founders beers in Australia, am I dreaming ?

A - Pours a deep dark Ebony colour with a tanned head that reduces to a thin lacing film.

S - Aromas of vanilla caramel and milk chocolate.

T - A really smopoth brew with milk cocolate vanilla and caramel being the dominant flavours the aftertaste is such that it leaves you wanting more. There is a tiny bit of old coffee and smoke in there also, but overall its a very well balanced brew.

M - Creamy and full with little carbonation, could not be improved on.

O - One of the best Prters I have had to date. So very well balanced and the mouthfeel is spot on. Recommended

Poured into a nonic. This beer pours very smooth, and it was honestly difficult to pour head. The little that I got was very dark. The beer was also quite dark, like a strong coffee color. Lacing formed all the way up the glass whenever tilted.

The aromas were roasted malt and coffee with a subtle presence of cocoa.

The taste fits the description of the smell. Very smooth, malty, a little chocolatey (not sweet), and somewhat fruity.

The mouthfeel was lacking in nothing. Very full, not watery at all. Very little carbonation, but that would ruin it

Overall this is excellent. One of my overall favorites.
