johnnnniee (2394) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Sampled at EBF on Saturday afternoon. Pours a deep golden amber color with a tiny off white head that is gone before the glass get to my lips. Smells of sweet caramel malts, sugar, vanilla and bourbon. Smell is very sweet. Taste follows the smell, its tasty but to many glasses could lead to diabetes. Medium to thick body light level of carbonation and a sweet syrupy mouthfeel.

On tap at founders. Pours amber with no head to speak of. Nose consumes you with bourbon, woods, alcohol, caramel, bready malts, and maple (not really in a good way). Flavor is alcohol and hot bourbon all over with muddled notes of maple and charred oak. This huge flavored but really an undrinkable beer. If you like ethanol mixed with charcoal and maple syrup you will like it.

JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Sampled at the Founder’s Tasting at Jackie O’s on 7/13/11 as part of Ohio Brew Week. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with some fruit, bourbon and maple syrup. Flavor starts fruity, then moves to caramel, bourbon and maple before an earthy hop finish.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Sample at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week during the Founders tasting with Dave Engbers. The beer pours dark brown with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Top ring of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of sweet malt and caramel and woody malt. Medium body with flavors of caramel, vanilla and oak as well as peaty malt. The finish is sweet and malty with a caramel aftertaste. Above average overall.

Nickls (1879) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Tap, RnH. Light ruby brown orange with an eggshell head. Raisins, bourbon, vanilla, cherry, oak, and boozy sweetness in the aroma. Lots of fruitiness in the flavor, vanilla, bourbon, and a sweet sticky finish. Medium body with softer carbonation.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Pour amber with thin head. The aroma of straight whiskey, vanilla, wood, caramel. Taste whiskey, vanilla, caramel, rather abrasive and unpleasant. MF medium body low carb. This beer just wasn’t for me could see it being enjoyable to some but not I.

Sample at Hopfest 2011 (KC). Pours a clear, dark amber. Aroma of molasses, wood, alcohol, peat. Flavor is brown sugar, oak, alcohol. Sweet and malty that packs a punch. I find this to be really good.
