Bottle...holy scotch aroma!...along with deep rich malts...deep and sweet they seep...dark copper with brown tones...happy beige foam taking a nap on top of the glass...nestling into the liquid mattress until its presence is hidden....thick creamy body...heavy and sweet...the scotch and malt deeply imbedded...sweet and dry & sticky on the lips...I ponder this upon my sips...peaty and sweety with a little citrus on the finish (grapefruit)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a snifter. Appearance is amber with a small, diminishing white head. Big aroma of caramel, raisin, malt and hops. Full-bodied taste with caramel and maltiness with a very bitter finish. Very good, does not feel like 9.8% at all.

Tap. Insanely beautiful lacing. Faint nose of lightly sweet nose. Full body. Tastes of spices -- almost a Christmas ale with nutmeg, allspice. Touch of orange. ABV not overwhelming in taste profile.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts and carmel. Taste is awesome and complex. Smooth, yet strong malts, sweet molasses, wood, bourbon, and raisins. I don’t know why I waited so long to buy this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
35cl bottle. Amber orange, thin white head. Caramel heavy aroma, with berries, figs, and sweet shortcake, touch of oakiness. Lovely deep caramel in the taste, lots of red berry, shortcake malt, light pine, some light vanilla, spices. Long berry, caramel and light pine finish. Medium/full body. Slight booziness. A lovely fireside beer, more good (and amazingly well-priced) gear from Founders.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bottle into Snifter.
Slightly hazy dark amber-brown, almost has a pinkish-red tint in the light. Thin head, slight lacing.
Sweet and malty aroma - dark fruits (plum?, raisins?) and bourbon. Some alcohol and English hops detected.
Sweet malt goodness. Caramel, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, plum and raisins with a slight English hop counterbalance, which is most noteworthy on the aftertaste. After warming more, I swear I tasted coconut.
Low carbonation, with a full, smooth, slightly chewy body. Nice warming effect.
Another good sipping beer from Founders, who continues to impress me. Watch out Bell’s!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Courtesy of Juart. Pours a dark hazy murky brown with no head to speak of. A little rimming. Aroma is a rich sweet toffee with a decent oaky bourbon nose. A little chocolate covered fruit too. Sweet flavor. Almost an almond joy. Definite presence of the oak and bourbon with some vanilla and caramel. A nice fruity balance with all of the deep flavors. Body is rich and leaves a good aged scotch flavor.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells fruity and boozy. Just a hint of hop aroma. I had a year old version (2011) on tap and a new bottle 2012 both this week. Both amazing. Very sweet and dangerously smooth. The only thing that could make it better is aging it in maple...well that’s another story.
