Draft. Pours dark with a reddish tent. The palate is juicy and wet. Not what I was expecting. The taste is big bourbon. Malty sweetness of the scotch ale. Decent beer

RexTalionis (3642) - FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle. Dark mahogny ruby in color with a tan head. Sweetness, bourbon and vanilla in aroma. Heavy and nice. Very smooth mouthfeel. Ripe dark fruits, raisins and plums, some bourbon vinous notes too in taste. Some malty notes and mild, almost burnt barrel-y vibes later on. Bit on the sweeter side, but drinkable still. A sipper.

Clear dark amber pour with a thin tan head. Notes of bourbon, dried fruit, caramel, toffee, prunes, raisins, dried apricots, vanilla and a bit of scotch. Smooth texture, full body, low carbonation and a bitter-sweet finish. A very well-made scotch ale.

hauxe (552) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2017
Pours brown with a ruby tinge. The finger thick head is deliciously creamy and only very slowly subsides. The aroma promises bourbon, and lots of it, but there are also hints of dark chocolate and caramel. Taste is bourbon, oak, and kind of bittersweet in a very alcoholic way. Finishes warm with a strong whiskey aftertaste. Not so fond of the palate, which was oily but at the same time rather thin and empty. Very alcoholic. I think Ive left the ground now. If you want to get drunk, this is the way to do it with class.

gr_pa (517) - siemianowice, POLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Brown, small but steady head. Aroma: caramel, toffee, coconut, vanilla, oranges, bread. Medium to light body, heavy to medium sweetness. Surprisingly lack of body, its almost watery. Sweet malty body, in flavour again great barrel notes. Very noticeable alcohol.

colui72 (805) - HONG KONG - JAN 31, 2017
This is awesome! Dark brown, small cream head, sticky lacing. Beautiful aroma of whisky, caramel, vanilla and wood. Taste is very warm and moderately boozy besides the 11.6%. Ripe fruits, whisky, oak, caramel, molasses, cherries. Full body, mostly sweet with some bitter in the finish. Fantastic ale!

MNAle (146) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2017
2016 version. Dark brown with a tinge of ruby. Moderate tan head that recedes quickly. Excellent aroma of bourbon and dark fruit. Moderate to thick mouth feel, little carbonation. Mild bittering and very nice fruity taste, with the outstanding bourbon taste at the forefront. Very, very nice, indeed. Little bittering, but what there is shows up in the finish. No alcohol warmth despite the 11+% ABV. Very smooth. Outstanding beer, Founders.
