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.

"Big and delicious for your perty mouth." Founders more or less sums this beer up in seven words. Year after year this a favorite. This is my last bottle this year, oh so sad. Big oaky bourbon, vanilla nose. Let this one warm up, if you didnt already know. Enjoying with my two best friends, 2 pit bulls!! Poured from a bottle. She changes personalities as she warms up. Bourbon up front, vanilla and oak. Caramel notes, but a well balanced sweetness. For such a big beer its relatively medium bodied. Several months ago I was privileged enough to be at a party with a keg of this, its very possible to enjoy several of these. This is one of the best beers out there. No matter what style beer you enjoy try this!!

BlazerT (750) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Brown with moderate, semi-thick, dirty white head. Poor to moderate head retention and moderate lacing. Moderate malty aroma, caramel, milky, lightly smokey (wood). The barrel notes are quite noticeable, but bourbon is due to specific scotch ale malty profile is not really up front. Taste is moderately sweet and light to moderately bitter. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is malty, light to moderate ABV. Lightly ABV warming. In summery good brew pretending to be very good, but IMO it should age for a little bit more to be very good. The ABV warming is above average here.

Rich caramel and super smooth bourbon and oak aromas and flavors. Definitely an enjoyable supper by the fire on the chillier nights. Founders best beer beside their breakfast stout.

TET (2793) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2017
A very dark brown beer with notes of red. A head is quite small and beige. Aroma has riped and rich fruitness with raisins and dates, some dark breadyness, less barrel, bourbon and chocolate. Taste has riped and dried fruitness, raisins, richness of malts, nice vanilla, some chocolate and strenght of bourbon in the end. Almost full bodied, not stickyness, nice and easy to drink. Complex and at the same time also balanced, just so greatly as the Founders can do it. The great and powerful beer.
