Plenty of rye malt gives a spicy complexity to this robust stout. Flaked barley adds a creamy mouthfeel, roasted barley and chocolate malts add complex character. Brewed with Nugget and Perle Hops. Tasty. 126 SRM.

Tap @ Founders: Mostly black pour with khaki sheet covering the top that forms a small collar at the edges eventually. Aroma is very, very mild, making it hard to pick out specific elements. Roasted grains, some roasted barley, perhaps a hint of rye? Not much going on. Taste has lots of spicy rye notes, toasted barley & grains, mild cola, & a hint of grassy hops floating about. Finish of burnt whole wheat bread. Not bad, but just decent.

Draft at Founders. Poured black with a slight tan head. Nose was light with a bit of coffee and coco. Taste of light rye mixes with the coffee and coco and lingers for a bit. Really nice beer.

Tap at the brewery - its cola with a dark chocolate head. Has a nice toastiness. Very dry. I mean very dry. I do get some of the rye, but its understated. Not a rye bomb, so to speak.

Had this one on draught at the tap room in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Opaque dark brown pour with a thick tan head, very dry and quite spicy. A nice change of pace!

pours black with a thin tan head. aroma has some charred roastiness, light rye and faint dark chocolate. flavor steps up the dark chocolate a bit...some faint espresso...very nice rye and roasty bitterness. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and roasty with light rye.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 100th beer rated, it has to be a Founders, at the taproom. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, picking up the rye. Appearance is a reddish-dark brown, looks nice. Taste is coffee forward, getting the rye. Mouthfeel is perfect, soft carbonation, creamy. Overall, this is a fine brew, and I am very happy to have made my 100th beer a Founders.

old notes...tap at founders...black pour, this guy is similar to what their black rye looked like. small brown head. a wonderful milk chocolate aroma with toasted malt all around. the rye comes across beautifully...slightly bitter chocolate and toast coming through with a slightly drying palate. the rye finishes off what seems mostly like a rye porter
