Was able to get a single four pack of the latest 2011 batch. True to the hype, this one didn't disappoint.
Very dark, black with tinges of brown and red, one finger dark brown head and decent lacing. Not all that impressive to look at.
Smell is like a sweet milk chocolate bar with just a touch of cappuccino. It's a bit leathery with a touch of vanilla and woody, earthy background aromas. You can detect the bourbon and the barrels it was aged in, adding a nice touch.
Taste is quite exceptional. Wonderfully strong, yet balanced, vanilla blended with smooth milk chocolate is the first thing I noticed. There's a touch of coffee but it's not the predominant flavor. Smooth bourbony wood flavors accent but don't overpower. Smoky malts are complimented by just a touch of hops. It's very sweet but there's also a touch of bitterness. Fantastic brew that totally does live up to the hype.
Feel is very smooth, slick, full bodied, with a lingering sweet vanilla and chocolate aftertaste.
Drink is fantastic. Off the charts for the style, and wonderful for any beer in any category. I love this beer!
MAKE MORE of this beer already. Struggling to get a four pack or two once a year really sucks. I have not been the biggest founder's fan so far, but this one I would buy all the time if I could.
