Tap at Founders. Pours a deep murky red with small off-white head, lots of lacing. Aroma strong of bourbon, very very slight rye, and wood. Flavor matches well, but is just dominated by bourbon, which doesn’t sit well with me. If you love lots of bourbon in your beer, this is definitely one for you.
Cloudy copper from draft. Big coconut from the barrel... BIG. Drinks more like a barleywine than an IPA, but it’s super good. Decent bitter at the finish. Smells of coconut, and a touch of fruit possibly cherry from the alcohol.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. Poured an amberish color with a small sized off white head. Woody, vanilla, caramel, lighter bourbon, and some citrus. trapped (3220) - New York, TURKEY - APR 21, 2015
Draught @ The Ginger Man. Copper red with medium creamy beige head, grassy hops aroma, low carbonation, sweetish taste with cinnamon and possibly nutmeg at the background, full body, long spicy finish. Quite a complex brew. tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2015

Had on draft at blackstone. Poured in a tulip. No head. Aromas are all barrel. Flavor is similar. The barrel is very strong on this, but not in a deep, immersive way with things BA for a longer time. It's a bit abrasive, though not entirely disagreeable. The base beer fades a bit in with the barrel application, though it's still there and still good. I liked this, but the barrel does just seem a bit tacked on rather than a core component of the beer.

On tap at Rattle N Hum, New York, NY. An amber/red coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Rye, bourbon, caramel, vanilla aroma. Tastes similar, rye, bourbon, caramel, vanilla. I drank 3 of these in 50 minutes, so easy to drink. Great stuff as ever from Founders.

Have a good color dark amber. the taste is too much caramel dominated. Light carbonated. Is not the best of founders. Travlr (25208) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Draft at Meridian Pint. Deep clear amber color, tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of butterscotch and toffee. Taste is vanilla, burnt caramel. Big and boozy. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2014
I like this. had it on tap at the saucer. the bourbon really can make anything taste better. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Draft, pours a dark amber. Nice aroma of bourbon, hops and caramel. Taste is oak, sweet malts with a decent hop presence.
