Beautifully balanced beer not overwhelming in the bourbon finish. The color and clarity are spot on.

On tap at World of Beer on 4/8/14. Clear red pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of orange, malt, vanilla, oak, pine and spicy rye. Flavor starts with spicy rye, moving to orange and then bourbon and vanilla before a grassy hop finish.

chucklemation (316) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a distinctive ruby red with a slight white head. Aroma is bourbon, citrus, and caramel. Flavor is much more subdued, with a sweet citrus, boubon, and caramel, as well as some mild hops. Has a medium body feel and goes down smooth. I think I like the regular Redís Rye on tap a little better than this, it having a strong citrus flavor and hop profile, but this was still enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2014
10oz on tap at Senate, for $8.54. Mostly clear, dark red color. Thin ring of off-white, sort of grayish head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Lightly slick. Good, smooth, creamy lighter carbonation, a little drying in the finish. Tropical fruity hop aroma. Nice rye spiciness. Good, balanced barrel character. Hints of vanilla, light caramel, creme... Nice moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet, with a good fry finish. Just a very light nice warmth in the finish thatís overshadowed by the good big earthy tropical lightly spicy hoppy aftertaste. Very tasty and balanced, enjoyable stuff. I enjoyed this much more than the last 2 barrel-aged Founders beers I tried (Doom and Boylrmakr). Very smooth and easy drinking. Texture and flavor both have a near-perfect balance. Amazing beer... Savored my 10oz to the last drop, and Iím not even mad about the $8 price. No way that a 4oz taster would have done this justice. Easily one of the most fantastic BAíd hop-forward beers Iíve ever tried, much better than expected.

I was skeptical. I didnít care for Founderís Doom and I was concerned that this might be yet another style that doesnít do well with barrel aging. I thought this beer did nicely. Pours a dark clear amber with barely tan head. Scent is rye and whiskey. Was it rye whiskey? As I donít regularly drink rye whiskey, I donít know. Very reminiscent of whisky only slightly sweeter and less boozy. Damn nice beer. Draft - Leonís Full Service - Decatur, GA

Tap at Slows Bar-B-Q. Pours clear, deep ruby red with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aromas are rye, vanilla, oak, cherries, and caramel malt. Taste is very smooth. Light sweetness from caramel and a little fruitiness. Awesome subtle bourbon barrel character. Very light hops show up in te spicy rye finish. I really thought I wasnít going to like this buts itís great.
