Had the pleasure of trying this on-tap at the Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington, Vt., last season. Enjoyed it so much that I couldn't pass up a mispriced 4-pack this season for $12/4pk.
A: Caramel, burgundy.
S: Bourbon, vanilla, coconut, brown sugar, maple.
T: Just as I remembered it. Strong coconut, vanilla, maple, and dried fruit. My Vermonter friend described it as "coconut maple candy." It's a dessert in and of itself.
M: Adequate, could be slightly better, but very well done.
O: Not having been able to get my hands on KBS, this is by far my favorite Founders beer. Granted, I lucked out in that I only had to pay $12 for a 4-pack but hey, I'd pay $15 or whatever it should be selling for. It's not something I could or would want to drink every night, but it hit the spot on a chilly Vermont November evening.
