4.08/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark hazy amber with a quarter inch head and fine lacing. Quite a bit of sediment left floating around. Scents of rosated malts, bourbon, vanilla, and molasses are apparent. Taste follows nose to a T - fantastic malt profile, complimented by a creamy vanilla and then that firey bourbon at the back of your mouth, leaving behind a lingering taste of molasses and a hint of butterscotch. Mouthfeel is medium thick, and a little tacky on the tongue. Really a well done brew, another hit from Founders.
