COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

igneous1 (1564) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2021 Bottled on 9/9/21. 12% about. Jet black, light brown head. Definite notes of bourbon, vanilla, and some kind of dark fruit. Hints of chocolate when I inhale a little more deeply. Flavors of dark fruit are quite prominent. Vanilla and bourbon flavors are more subdued than in the aroma. Strong hints of cherry linger in the finish. Almost like those chocolate cherry cordials. Truly one of the best beers I've had in years. Glad I have a 4-pack!

Gurthnar (9851) - Bratislava, SLOVAKIA - NOV 22, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2021 Shared with the boys at BBT 11/2021. Medium body, med-high carbonation. Loads and loads of malt character. Focused on the dark malts, strong coffee, slightly burnt and ashy. Also strong chocolate, cocoa, light caramel, and toffee. ABV hidden pretty well, it is perceivably strong, but well rounded. Very good.

Yorona (67) - - NOV 14, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2021 Nose is vanilla, toffee, caramel. Light carbonation and v big body. Taste is typical Founders wonderful balance. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee. The bourbon warmth really floods in after the initial taste and warms me through. A fine, fine example of a BA imperial Stout.

climberbob (770) - Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2021 Bottle into stout glass. Looks like it should. Pitch black with thin tan head. Complex aroma of vanilla, bourbon, milk chocolate, coffee and a bit of crème brûlée in there too. Silky smooth, oily mouthfeel. Taste has all the same aroma profiles in there. Chocolate coffee finish with a touch of roastyness in there.
