on-tap into a tulip 11.13.12 @ Jak's Tap in da West Loop. From notes.
A - mahogany brown, deep amber highlights w a creamy off white head of 1 finger. great legs, patchy lacing.
S - big oaky bourbon straight away, brown sugar and vanilla in after. peat and a hint of smoke just detectable underneath it all. As usual for Founders, a top-notch bouquet.
T - closely follows the nose w brown sugar and peat more enhanced. alcohol heat picks up as beer warms but smooth port, sherry, rum-soaked raisins and melted butter as well. finish is lingering and caramel sweet but not cloying.
M - medium body, medium carbonation. smooth, dangerously easy drinking.
Worth the hype, but I really wish this was easier to get in bottles.
Serving type: on-tap
