jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Appearance is brown with dissipating head but good lacing. Taste is wonderful vanilla and bourbon with little alcohol burn. Mouth feel is nice and lasting but not too thick. Founders beers have some of the best mouth feel around. This is a definite goto beer when Im looking for something I know will put me in a good mood.

Bottle shared @Pułapka, Gdańsk

Butterscotch! Very strong and clean taste of butterscotch, vanilla and a bit of nice milky sweetness. Pleasant alcoholic warming in the finish.

Lambister (512) - FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
335cl bottle from local Alko, Viikki. This effort of brewing in its style reminds me of saying: Dont join an easy crowd. You wont grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform and achieve are high. Jim Rohn. Skilfully made brew as always from Founders.

Heidbummer (479) - SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Taster at Euston tap East. Pours thick brown with tan head. Massive bourbon, molasses and prune aroma. A bit sweet and sickly for me to have drunk a half of it. But big smoky, date and dark fruit taste with dry whisky in the back. Possibly a good example of taking barrel aging too far but its fun.

MaBeer1972 (1955) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle poured into a snifter. A dark ruby brown color. Frothy tan head settles to a thick lace. I let this warm a while before I opened it. Aroma is very sweet and slightly off-putting. Texture is soft and smooth. Flavor comes around nicely after a while. Complex dark chocolate malts, sweet cherries and booze. Vanilla and oak. Long earthy-wood spice bittersweet finish.
