3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours lighter than expected, a dark semi-clear orange with minimal head. Smell is light bourbon, oak, vanilla. Taste is sweet but not cloying; maple/honey, sticky malts, toffee, dark fruits. In the end the maple mixed with the fruity malts where a bit odd. Slight a nice beer and the booze is extremely well hidden, but this a bit of a dissapointment considering I have loved everything else that Founders has done. Still a 3.6 doesn’t suck, just lower than I would have thought prior to popping the top.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. A near clear one with some identifiable sediments and it’s colored lovely glowing wood golden. Has no head worth mentioning really, but that doesn’t matter. The nose is filled with some sort of sweetness, almost like a vanilla pie, but it’s definitely not to extreme or powerful. The flavor however is just powering wonderful! Nut yeasty, it has a lovely sweetness but still manages to be balanced. Some spicy woody licorice tones that reminds me of fennel. Cookie dough with a warming boozy finish filled with lots of stingy pepper. A really fine tasting one! 15.06.2013

Bottle. It poured a reddish/brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of bourbon, molasses and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with more bourbon, molasses, vanilla, caramel, maple and spices. Very tasty.

Bottle from the rotter. Nose is moderate vanilla with a light oxidation. Taste is more bourbon forward with a smooth vanilla and general malty sweetness, some toffee. Surprisingly smooth for such high abv. The beer has held up well too with only a light hint of oxidation.
