Doesn’t seem to have a strong aroma but you can tell it will be sweet. Has tastes of coconut and citrus. Almost reminds someone of a coconut flavored rum. Has a creamy, medium body, and soft carbonation with a slightly long finish. It is not astringent or bitter. I would not go buy a 6 pack of this.

The best example of Old Ale that I’ve ever come across. Great by itself, or with the ribs that I just had them with.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reminiscent of the Belgium trappist Quad style brews, this bold ale rings in dark fruits topped with a funky maltiness that holds true to the label on the bottle. The body and mouthfeel are interestingly full and creamy. Unexpectedly dry back-end really brought this beer up to another level. The palate is really perfectly balanced. Although the flavor leaves an hop-addicted american wanting, I can appreciate this brew for what it is; and surely for what it was meant to be, and old fuckin’ ale!

Pours a bright orange with a white head. Yeasty and very balanced this is a great ale. Great yeasty scent and taste with a touch of sweetness but at the same time finishes hoppy dry. A great effort from Founders.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a deep amber with little to no head. Bourbon, and floral scent. Complex malty taste with a high hop. Taste lasts, is not bitter and leaves a clean fresh finish. Would recommend.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not the prettiest beer, no head, no lacing, dark orangy brown, smells raisiny, reminding me a lot of the smell of a raison d’etre. Taste is simular, only this is much boozier, I would not call this smooth at all, leaves a burning sensation. That’s not a turn off for me though, all in all tasty
