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.

Very dark brown color with zero head and minimal oily lacing. Aroma was sweet with bourbon and vanilla. Flavor was all smoky bourbon and light malts. Pretty good overall

Bottle at home (bb 04 june 17). Pours a clear reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma has lots of sweet bourbon, wood, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Taste is over moderate sweet and bitter, aftertaste of more bourbonny alcohol, wood and vanilla goodness. Full mouthfeel and lots of warming alcohol. Very nice.

Ich rieche Whiskey, Melasse und Holz. Gaul!! Und hart am Limit. Knospenspalter der harten "Komm jetzt endlich an den Kamin und rauch mit mir ne Zigarre" Fraktion. Ungestm fordernd und kratzig alkoholisch. Das alles auf hchsten Toffee/Lakritz und HarzhopIBU Niveau. Kantig und doch so unfassbar ausgewogen. Das kriegen nur die Amis hin. 355ml for Life. 5,5.

Red brown medium bodied beer. Contains oak, whiskey, a bit of smoke, sweet fruits and red fruits, caramel, a bit of roast and coffee. Sweet at the start, bitter in the finish. not highly complex but well balanced and very enjoyable. Drink it slowly to enjoy all the flavors.

Oud flesje. Fenomenaal aroma met massas bourbon. In de smaak noten, kruiden, hout en een zekere scherpte van rode vrucht. Mondgevoel beetje vet.

thanks sinH4, a stunning beer to look at and marvel its appearance. Very true to the style as Founders so often does. Sweet burbon nose, lots of vanilla embedded into some damp-basement smell that I often get from Scotch Ales. No burnt aromas whatsoever. Overall pretty perfect.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours clear dark ruby. Aroma is strong barrel and booze, vanilla. Body is heavy, strongly boozy, also sweet, barrel. One dimensional, but does exactly what it wants. Good.

butelka. brązowe, z rubinowymi refleksami, beżowa, żołtawa drobnopęcherzykowa piana, utrzymująca się do końca picia w postaci niewielkiego krążka. aromat zdominowany przez wpływ beczki - drewno, vanilia, mid, po ogrzaniu rwnież rodzynki, szlachetny alkohol. w smaku pełne, nisko nasycone, wytrawne, z niewielką słodką kontrą, alkohol doskonale ułożony i zakamuflowany, przyjemnie rozgrzewający przełyk.

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.
