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

Bottle at the Towne Tavern. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Big pine notes on the nose. Lots of piney goodness on the tongue. So many finishing hops that it dries the mouth out. Hides it's booze well. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (2666) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2016
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, malt, persika, aprikos, smörkola och grapefrukt. Lagom sötma, lätt fruktighet, tydlig beska som tar över aning mycket med smak av citrusskal, och maskrosstjälk.

jsporrer (622) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Pours a hazy dark amber / caramel color with a medium head of light tan foam. Strong aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and dark fruits. Light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Medium thick syrupy texture. Full mouth feel. Very light bitterness with mostly sweeter malt flavors. Fairly smooth for the high ABV. Feels like a Barley Wine with a nice warm finish. Hides the alcohol well. Not harsh at all. Pretty enjoyable.

Linnet (1653) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2016
alcohol, caramel, leaves, citrus, spruce, grapefruit, strawberry jam, plums, lightly vinous. Ruby colour, big off-white head, lacing. Massive bitterness, massive sweetness, alcohol, whisper of salt? ABV well hidden, potency is there, but not boozy at all, lots of resin. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, thick feel, long resinous finish. Yet again a world class brew from Founders.

TychoJames (1027) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Flaska systembolaget. Tappad 10 maj. Eldig rödorange kulör. "Mogen" doft. Barr, lite knäck och torkad frukt. Möjligen lite mandelmassa också. Kraftfull smak med rejäl maltbas och tjock humlehinna. Barr, spannmål, löv, trä och koda. Bra tryck i beskan och fyllig munkänsla. Möjligen något för bitter.

mambossa (281) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Pours a deep, royal red with hefty off-white head. Nose heavy with peaches, cherries, red apple, tangerine, lemon skin, fresh foliage, pine, soft sage, sweet malt. Flavor is initially stonefruit-forward, then becomes blinded by soapy, grandiose bitterness. A bit harsh between the alcohol and monumental amount of hops used to support the flavor. Not for me.

Mjp12 (1386) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Luscious golden orange colour, strong boozy hop aroma, but very well balanced flavour, not extremely bitter, and relatively easy drinking for its abv.

NordicV (1932) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2016
Rödbrun öl med ett större gulorange skum. Både doft och smak är söt med Frukt, karamell och alkohol. Balanseras av stora mängder humle som ger beska och tallbarr i smaken.
