Bottle. Orangish colour with a light beige head with medium lasting. Aroma is light caramel, toasted malts and spiced. Flavor is quite similar as aroma with slightly hints of wood, mild sweet with a light bitterness in the final.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012 bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark honey/amber color with a small off white head. Very sweet and malty nose, lots of dark fruits, caramel, some light spices, and a touch of alcohol. Dark fruits are strong on the taste as well, some caramel and molasses, candy sugar, smooth, sweet, a few "holiday" spices I can’t put my finger on, and very malty. I need to try this fresh again to compare the two, though this is pretty damn tasty.

det här var lite av en besvikelse, men bara lite. Smaken var intressant och komplex med toner av aprikos, malt, örter och något som skulle kunna vara någon form av konfektyr. Kroppen var bra och stabil men balansen uteblev helt, dock var det synd att alkoholen sken igenom lite.

Mycket sötma här. Både i aroman och smaken. Man skulle nästan gissa på att det legat i ett whisky fat ett tag.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
341 ml. bottle sampled @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Thx! Pours dark amber, head is mainly off-white bubbles. Nose is lovely and trumps taste. Smells of sweet maple fruits, caramel, toffee, rich with a hint of oak and some sugar. Taste is a bit lesser, sadly but still good, tuned down compared to the smell. Tastes of sweet caramel malts, toffee, slight fruits, vanilla, hints of oak, molasses, vanilla and some candy sugar. Little carb. & body is a bit watery sadly. Overall very enjoyable still. I have had some mixed feelings about Founders – mainly about them being good but not as good as their reputation – this edges me again a bit closer towards appraisal.

Bottle. Pours cloudy light brown color. Aroma is very malty, bread, caramel, toffee. Medium sweet taste. Full body, thick and smooth texture. Can definitely taste the alcohol in the finish but it is quite subdued. Enjoyed the oak flavor. Nice ale overall.
