Hearty aroma of molasses, brown sugar and hints of cask aging. Orange with medium hazing. Very sweet flavor, recalls spiced rum at first and bourbon on finish. This isnít too profound though, just enough of a hint. Smooth and a rather easy drink - not to infer t is light though. Another winner for Founders.

Bottle to pint glass. A-malty, sweet. M-close to a Barleywine in profile. Nice old ale. F-sweetness and a thick coating. Really good beer.

Bottle from Beer Swap Saturday, thanks boss! Pours orange amber with a scant white head. Aroma has caramel malt, red fruits, cinnamon, clove. Flavor is warm and cinnamon/nutmeg spicy with a caramel molasses backbone thatís not too cloying. Nice.

Caramel, oak, molasses, cider and golden raisin flavors. Strong alcohol bite at the finish. Hints of cinnamon and spice. Good feel. Not fond of the boozy flavor but still good.

4 pack bottles from Proof. Deep copper pour with thin dirty white head that leaves a ring. Aroma is caramel, apricot, sugar. Tastes are caramel, molasses, vanilla, plum, leather, oak. Lots happening. Even and hides alcohol well - just a background warmth. Drinks a little easier than it should, though still a sipper.

Bottle. Pours deep red, dark cherry wood - no head - looks amazing. Aroma is sweet malty syrup, and oak (probably molasses but I canít say I directly know what they smell like). The taste follows suit and adds dark fruit (raisin, plum, fig notes) butter scotch, maple syrup, and booze. Very complex flavors. The mouthfeel is very rich, creamy, and heavy with very low carb. Overall excellent

Pours caramel colored. Great taste of the molasses powers through, very rich and silky to drink. Great beer to enjoy in slow sessions.
