4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Reno's East. Odd dark pee yellow color with a tiny off-white head. Really nice bourbon and vanilla aromas up front rounded up by mild citrus at the end. Really bitter and a bit hot upfront but it mellows to a nice citrus, pine, and hint of bourbon/wood.
Much better showing than the Bolt
Cutter and much more reasonably priced.

Had at Glunz Global Beer Expo XIX. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big, off white head. Had strong aromas of bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, and butterscotch. The hops are clearly diminished, but the malt and bourbon make this one of the more peculiar beers I have ever tried. The bourbon leaves a strong aftertaste, but the alcohol was undetected. This is a big, slow sipper that should be tried by any beer fan.

Very nice bourbon on the nose and the initial taste. Bourbon flavor is similar to KBS. Finishes with good bitterness and a decent amount of sweetness. Really one of a kind.

Tap. Deep golden with small head. Very unsubtle. Pretty harsh bourbon notes and big hoppy bitterness. Not crazy about this.

Sweet orange and oak aroma. Very smooth with a medium boozy finish. Orange and lemon flavors linger with honey. Medium bitter finish. A good sipper.

Changed a great deal with the temperature. Very sweet with a strong orange flavor. Oak aging isn’t super evident, but becomes more noticble as it warms. I’m not a huge barrel aged ipa fan, but this one is pretty good. Would Like to see how this changes with even more time.

Draft at Butcher & the Boar. Getting a little tobacco in the nose. Hazy amber. Some sugary sweetness. Getting more cigar box in the flavor. Some sweetness. Not a lot of hops which is surprising given the fact this is double trouble. Bourbon and maple syrup are subduing it. Pepper finish. Quite lovely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Butcher & the Boar, nice bold orangish gold pour with a very thin white head. Big citrus and caramel aromas to start, get some nice sweet bourbon as well. Taste is a bit of alcohol up front with done bourbon sweetness and caramel, blends well with the hops. Has a nice body and smooth finish, digging this beer.

Fresh from bottle. Clear pour - orangeish yellow with white head. Pine and citrus aroma. The tastes are bound together slightly by the bourbon flavor. Overall a much better offering than Double Trouble, though not as good as other Founders Backstage beers.

Pours a nice orange color with mild carbonation. It is hop goodness mixed with bourbon heaven.
