A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

Tap at Founders tap-takeove, Devil Craft Gotanda, Tokyo. Pours deep brown, I mean almost black that has some brown notes. At first is quite cold but while it warms, starts revealing toffee-filled, bitter chocolate-cocoa mocha nose with some hints of bourbon. Taste is roast, coffee is actually not that strong, I am getting mainly bitter roast chocolate, dusty cocoa and some vinous liquorice. Tastes deep, alcohol is well balanced with the flavour profile coming out loud and clear as I let the beer get warmer. I can understand the craze around this beer, feeling lucky to enjoy it from tap.

Sample from keg @Stockholm beer & whisky festival. Lovely smooth stout with flavours of coffee, chocolate and ripe fruits. Vanilla coming on strong in the aftertaste along with the woody bourbon notes. Liked this a lot. According to the Founder’s guys in the festival stand, production is increasing. Hope they are correct, I missed the latest limited release in Sweden.....

I grab this beer every year, one to have right away and a few to age for months to a few years. I’ll rate a fresh one( I wrote this review in my phone notes when it was released but forgot to submit here). Poured from the bottle almost completely black, thick and with just about a fingers worth of brown head. The nose is all barrel and alcohol before you get coffee and Vanilla. The flavor follows suit for me, the hotness of the alcohol hits first before it gets smoothed out by vanilla and coffee. The feel is thick like syrup but carbonated adding to the appeal of the beer. This is an outstanding stout that I will continue to purchase many of and enjoy!

12oz bottle. Pours black with a thick light mocha head. Smells strong cocoa and coffee roastiness. Unbelievable mouthfeel. Tastes like their breakfast stout but the flavors come through much, much more. Cocoa, vanilla and coffee roastiness. Lovely, lovely beer. Well worth its rating.

12oz bottle thanks to Rene. Pours out black and oily, small tan head. Big, bold aroma of coffee and chocolate. Sweet chocolate bar, more coffee, roast grains, bourbon notes and vanilla. This one stands up to its reputation.
