COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big and delicious for your perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. Its a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Bottle to snifter, minimal head disappears within seconds. Looks to be crisp deep brown with some reddish hues exposed when held up to the light. Nose is boozy + peaty, almost underwhelming, because I know how good its about to taste. Yessir! So much going on doughy bread, jam, slight astringency, caramel, and wood. All flavors play well together without ever being to sweet. The barrel-aging absolutely compliments the style of beer. Mouthfeel is smooth, slightly hot (doesnt detract from taste), goes down way too easy. Not the most challenging style off beer but Founders hits it out of the park, love it.

DELICIOUS, ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Thank you Bud Starr! Shared from a 12oz brown bottle into a tulip glass. It poured a slightly hazy, deep reddish amber color with a thin but persistent off-white head and lace. Malty sweet, caramelly, toffee, oak, vanilla, coconut, white chocolate, Scotch Ale, fruity, earthy, boozy. Very smooth, slightly less-so as it warmed. Noticeable alcohol, warming but well-integrated.

Pours dark rust with minimal head. Smells of toffee, brown sugar, and oak aged bourbon. There is a smooth syrupy mouthfeel that only enhances the beauty of the taste. Molasses, oak, and bourbon come together in viscous harmony. Beautiful beer.

Bottle->stem. Deep amber, no head. Aroma is deep malt and grain. Taste is bourbon, bourbon, bourbon with some malt. Alcohol overpowers the good taste. For me, a great beer (Dirty Bastard) has been lessened here by the current urge to age everything in a bourbon barrel.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 Draft. Medium brown in color, malty and slightly boozy on the nose, this beer is a dream to drink. You sip and want to linger on the palate extra long. UPDATE: 11-20-14, Super thick molasses smell, sugary nose, with a boozy and coconut mouth. Way more coconut this year. Actually, too much coconut, probably.

One of my all-time favs. Super close to drinking a good bourbon. Beautiful color. Heavy booze and vanilla in the nose. The taste is warming throughout but has a great complexity with caramel, oak, vanilla, and scotch. Wonderful cold weather sipper that happens to come out right around my bday every year. Fine stuff indeed. .

On tap at bodega. Pours a murky brown with medium head. Smells sweet with oak and bourbon. A little smoke. Tastes more b ourbony than I expected and kind of makes the scotch ale flavor. Palate is super creamy. Still tasty.
