COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil. 112 IBUs

Great nose. Can smell sticky hops and alcohol. Taste is a little too sweet for me but makes it very drinkable for the ABV. wouldn't try this again. Might be able to pass this off as a barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2304) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Lovely deep red with amber highlights and an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, tropical fruit, grass, alcohol, toffee, and wood. Taste is potent; sweetness dominates, but woody and bitter flavors abound. Alcohol, while noticeable, particularly as it warms, is still surprisingly subtle. A little dry. Full, thick, syrupy body with soft carbonation. Excellent.

commonshawn (796) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Tap at McCoy’s. Light amber with frothy off white head and good lacing. Really nice bready malted sweet and alcohol aroma. Rich sweet biscuit taste. Sweet then bitter hop finish. Oily but then drying at the end. Lots of flavor with alcohol bite. Glad I danced with this devil.

neurbob (102) - Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2015 Bottle to IPA glass. Orange / red amber, medium orange head. Sweet woody aroma, alcohol. Sweetish syrup balanced by strong hops. Long bitter hop finish. Basically Triple Trouble, a slightly more intense version of Founders Double Trouble. Similar in intensity to Sierra Nevada Hoptimum but not as complex.

Lacho (40) - USA - AUG 6, 2015
Beautiful foamy head, slightly creamy color. Very hoppy aroma, very resin forward, no alcohol present yet. Powerful, bitter, now the alcohol level comes thru. Foam has all but disappeared, powerful, the alcohol is balanced as it warms. Great beer.

Pleasant amber color, huge hop bite, caramel malt oozing throughout. With that and the strength, it’s slightly reminiscent of a barleywine.

sjohnny (451) - - AUG 3, 2015
Malty dark fruit aroma almost like a quad but with some citrus that brightens it up a little bit. Pours opaque Amber brown with very thin off white head. Thick. Sweet. Lots of fruit with a strong bitterness toward the end and jaw tingling throat warming esters. This is really good.

stldicedealer (30) - Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance is Amber with a small head that dissipates quickly. Taste of malt followed by a strong hop bitterness that lasts and lasts. Somewhat boozy but overall a solid beer

Intense hoppy flavor, and great dark Amber color. Really strong hoppy flavor with a sweet after taste.

fiveacestx (875) - Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle - dark tea color with a small head. Aroma and taste of alcohol. It’s apparently really hard to hide 12% ABV. Has a dry burnt biscuit flavor to it along with syrupy dark candy. Not really bitter but pretty dry.
