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.

This brew will make you walk sideways…backwards... What a kick-ass beer, way underrated IMO.. Oaky bourbon flavor, lovely vanilla undertones, a faint touch of some unidentified fruit with a slight warming of abv... Nicccee Wee Heavy....Founders top notch...

God och mycket kryddig doft. Mycket karaktär. Även smaken var väldigt god med tydlig fatlagring och kryddor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice big bold tasting beer had in bottle at the Arboreal Inn in Spring Lake Michigan! Going to age a couple of bottles to see how well it ages ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun med beige skum. Tydlig bourbon doft med lite kola och choklad. Smaken präglas av bourbon och den är ganska torr och lite spritig.

Pours a dark red with a white lacy head. Insanely strong malt aroma. Taste is a very sweet intense malt made more complex with the barrel flavors. with a slightly bitter finish.No taste of alcohol?maybe too sweet? Very thick low on bubbles.

I haven’t had something like this before. It pours dark copper brown with small lacing, the immediate smell is bourbon, vanilla, sweet dark fruit like Christmas pudding, but the alcohol smell is really dominating. I didn’t find it that thick or syrupy, thin texture but has a lot of kick which goes great with the bourbon aroma. Complex.
