4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle. Pours dark, clear brown with ruby hints. Latte-colored head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big bourbon punch right up front, but quickly recedes and coalesces into the other elements: smoked peat, burnt toffee, bits of cherry and spice. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. A little hot on the finish, but otherwise pretty great.

Bottle, thnx to a trade of which I forgot the name. Pours a hazy light brown beer with a very minimal amount of off white head. Aroma has massive amount of bourbon, booze, loads of oak and sweet vanilla and caramel. Flavor is strong and sweet, loads of bourbon again, boozy and sugary. Slight peppery burn with booze in the aftertaste. Strong and sweet, complex and pretty awesome. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cellared 2012 bottle served in a St. Bernardus snifter at a temperature of about 58F.
Dark red-brown body with a small head that quickly reduces to a thin ring.
Slightly under-carbonated but very smooth body with only a bit of warmth from the alcohol.
Boozy and sweet aroma with notes of prunes, vanilla, bourbon and toffee.
The flavor also carries a bit of bourbon and faint wood (barrel), and is lightly sweet.
O: I’ve now had this both fairly fresh and aged for nearly 3 years: excellent on both occasions.

파운더스 브루잉 - 백 우드 바스타드 10.2% 오크 버본 베럴에 에이징된 근성있는 스카치 에일. 연유나 우유 필의 밀키한 맛과 향에 위스키 특유의 향이 굵직하게 피어오른다.그& 목적으로 출시된 근성의 맥주
아무런 정보 없이 첫입에 훅 털어 넣으면 무언가를 마신다는 행위라기 보단 갑작스레 누군가에게 인중을 강하게 가격당하는 것에 가까운 경험을 할 수 있다.
그만큼 진득허니 베럴에 묵혀 진을 뽑아낼대로 뽑아낸 맥주. 강하고 확실한 캐릭터가 마음에 든다.

12 oz bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer for this. Somehow I haven’t rated this?? Wow, 2014 vintage, bottled 9/26/2014. Deep ruby color almost no head. Aroma is nice, mild bourbon over dark fruits (layers of plum, figs and raisins)
If you open this fresh I feel like the bourbon will help balance this. Right now this is crazy sweet. Almost to the point of cloying but not quite. I guess I needed to have a fresh sample and then a year old vintage. Right this second the dark fruit over powers the bourbon and gives this a "barley wine " like flavor. But don’t get me wrong... This is still wonderful. Bourbon and sweetness provides a ton of flavor. Another big plus in this brew is the alcohol is totally hidden. No hype here straight old school rate.

Bottle from the Dram Shop. Pours deep ruby with a fairly thin beige head. Nice smoky caramel aroma. A little pear drop too. The taste starts spicy before caramel, light smoke, wood and bourbon. Quite evident alcohol giving a warming glow. The alcohol lingers a little too much in the finish for me. Otherwise excellent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deepest ruby with a short tan head. Big peaty, whisky aromas. It’s pretty sweet, but somehow avoids being cloying and is remarkably drinkable. Sweet malts and dried fruit, oak, toffee, bourbon. Slightly boozy and really warming. Absolutely delicious.

Pours very dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is a strong peat smell. The taste is very peaty too, it’s like a proper Island whisky. Very nice.
