Big and delicious for your ’perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Pours a deep and warm brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, oak and dark berries. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Rich and complex taste of whisky, spices, coffee and some vanilla with smoky aftertones. The alcohol is well hidden in the long and warming finish.

On tap @ HO1K Beers. Pours a dark caramel brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel and vanilla. Taste has a light whiskey flavor up front with hints of woody oak. The is some sweetness and alcohol warmth. Whiskey flavor isn’t too overpowering but the sweetness detracts from the rest of the flavors. Not one of my favorite styles.

Patersoi (133) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2016
Aroma of bourban and oak. Evocative. Pours deep golden brown with dense honeycomb head. Tastes like a crunchie bar, with honecomb and chocolate. But there is more, with oak, christmas pudding (inclusive of brandy zing) and a warm soft palate. The finish is sweet oak and creaminess which fades eventually leaving a warm glow from all that alcohol.

Delicious! The sweetness caught me off guard, quite unexpected. A very nice evening, after dinner sipper. I fall more in love with Founder’’s each time I experience a different brew from them!

wombat23 (386) - Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 12 oz. bottle. Pours ruby-brown with a small beige head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, and faint vanilla notes. Taste is malt, and lots of bourbon and oak. The bourbon/oak combination is overpowering and drowns out the other flavors. Has a bitter alcohol/bourbon finish. Low carbonation. Full-bodied. Had higher hopes for this, but it’s still decent. Definitely feeling this one after drinking the whole bottle. If you like booze bombs, this would be an excellent choice.
