This is definitely a great beer as you would except from founders, but It’s no backwards bastard.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Beautiful hazy lightly reddish brown colour, beige foamy head. Sweet nose with toffee and caramel maltiness and some red fruits. Taste is big on alcohol and malty sweetness, candy cane, a little hoppy bitter too: rather one dimensional but nicely balanced. Finish is short and sweet, a little astringent. Sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation and firm body.

355ml bottle. Best sugars I ever smelt in a beer. Very good old ale example. Perfectly balanced. Far away from barley wine. Perfect on all of the stages. I actually had it in US several years ago, and now revisiting it brings back good memories.

35,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with notes of wood, vanilla, spices and bourbon. Sweet and caramelly with nice, but somewhat strange spicy notes and a certain bitterness. Too much on the sweet side, but still quite interesting.

Smells like butter! Tastes like buttered rum slightly. Nice cloudy orange amber color. Flavor reminiscent of a Belgian in it's yeastiness. Yes it's near 10%

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet maltiness and syrupy texture in a black as night brew. Very potent stuff. I think the name should be changed to "GET OFF MY LAWN!"
