COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Solid chotch ale. Malty, bit fruity and with some sweet notes of oak and caramel. Nice, but a bit too much on the sweet side.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2014
From a 355ml bottle on 4/5/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a dark cloudy amber with a small head. The aroma features stewed and dark fruit, caramel and a touch of booze. The bourbon really hits you immediately but this gives way to sticky sweetness, with caramel, toffee, dates and raisins all featuring. There’s more than a touch of cherry sour, roasty bitterness and warming alcohol in there, but the sweetness dominates. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation relatively lively. A very nice, quite complex winter dessert sipper.

Pours dark mahogany colored with a thin tan head. Aroma is vanilla, toasted oak, sweet caramel. Taste is more of the same. Not too sweet. Toasty with vanilla , malts with the slightest of dark fruit. This beer is a delicious treat! Body is right where it should be, medium full.

Keg @ Beer Run. Deep brown, hazy with a tight head. big bourbon and chocolate nose, plenty of toffee. Taste is supremely malty. More chocolate, ice cream sundae. Some heat on the finish. Full body, oily. Quality.

BLADT (455) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014
UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 From bottle. Deep ruby red with almost no head. Full aroma of vanilla, burnt sugar, cherries and, of course, bourbon. Inviting and boozy. Taste starts with oak and vanilla, blended with malty sweetness. The middle brings out rum soaked biscuits. Finish is black cherries and booze. Viscous. The flavors pair perfectly here. No hard edges. Despite all the dessert flavors this ale is never too sweet. Another barrel aged winner from Founders.
