Brewhemia (314) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2017 Interesting aroma of coconut, vanilla, oak and alcohol. The taste also has the interesting coconut flavor. Medium to high sweetness, medium to high bitterness with dru and bitter finish with lots of alcohol flavor. Really interesting and well balanced in spite of the extreme alcohol level.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a murky honey amber color with a small foamy off white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy pine and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter , tangy and sour with pine, grapefruit, cleaning solution and a strong boozy presence. Long hoppy and boozy finish. Full bodied. Disappointing.

Linnet (1844) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2017
LOTs of bourbon, butterscotch, vanilla, oaky, caramel, alcohol, resin, pine. Amber colour, medium creamy white head, lacing. Boozy, heavy alcohol, heavy sweet, Good amount of bourbon and caramel Piney resinous bitterness. Fullbodied, chewy mourhfeel, boozy, sweet and bitter finish. Solid brew, but the burn from the alcohol is a bit too much.

PorterPounder (8066) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - Lucky’s Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, tight bone colored head that sticks around a while. Aroma is heavy, overly sweet, lots of homebrew-like crystal malt. Flavor is a little too much, kind of hot, not subtle. Maple syrup, cotton candy, just a hint of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel has a nice chewy thickness to it In my humble opinion, not one of Founder’s finest efforts,

TychoJames (1327) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2017
Flaska systembolaget. Klar mörkorange vätska. Doft av citrus, smörkola och fat. Maltig och smått eldig smak av bourbon, knäck, smörkola. Lite spritig och vass.

gyllenbock (9288) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear light amber with a medium head. Sweet with warming alcohol, caramel, bourbon, some oak and grapefruit. The mouthfeel was medium and the finish bitter. A heavy one but quite tasty.

Only for people who love bourbon!! But for them, this is a great beer, with a beautiful balance between the IPA and the rich and strong bourbon taste. ---Rated by Belgiandean
