3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle. Pours a dark amber-brown with an off-white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of malt, hops, caramel, grass, wood, yeast. Taste is crisp, starts with sweet malt and caramel, then picks up a hoppy, yeasty bite, with a hint of dark fruits. Lingering crisp malt and yeast that ends watery. Not bad, but not terribly interesting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Natifest ’14. Poured clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt and sweet fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted complex sweet flavor with a solid sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is still a solid complex beer.

750 ml bottle shared by Beerpig317 - thanks again, Bunker! Never even heard of this one before. Interesting. 2012 vintage. Pours an amber color with a finger of off-white head. Nuts of toasted malts, tobacco, nuts, earth, brown sugar, dried fruit, and oak. Hints of oxidation setting in. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a dry, toasty mouthfeel. Good brown ale, but on the way down.

8/02/2014: Founder’s Furniture City Stock Ale 2012... Remins me of an American-style ESB. I like the toasted malt and soft bitterness. I really wish I would have been able to try this earlier in the day before all of the REALLY big stuff. Even so, I really like this beer and can really appreciate the style and subtle complexity.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. The poor is a very dark ruby almost light brown, with a medium light tan had and some decent lacing as it fades down. The aroma has a strong sugary sweetness to it. There is a good mall presence, but not a whole lot else going on. The sugar almost smells like a brown sugar. It carries a little bit of that molasses type of aroma. The flavor is a little sweet, and then carries on a bit of a metallic-y malt flavor. There is a light sugar, but it's much more malty and equally quick on the flavor. The mouth feel is thin and slick, with not a whole lot of carbonation to help it out, so it's light-bodied. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and metallic
