This beer was first tried by a friend and I on a chilly Sunday afternoon in-between two music event that we were attending. It was an excellent choice all around. It has and great color and smell and was served in a sniffer glass. It is a sipping beer that will warm you right up. If you think of a scotch ale aged in a bourbon barrel you will have an idea about what this beer tastes like. If you enjoy their Dirty Bastard and you are a fan of whiskey this is a great beer.

Founders Backwoods Bastard - 10.2% ABV - 2012 Vintage, consumed November 17, 2013
Pours a dark ruby-brown hue with a sliver of tan froth and a few dots of lacing on the snifter. Head subsides after a couple of sips. Smell and taste are oak barrel, bourbon, slight smoke, cocoa, apple, ethanol, brown sugar, caramel and molasses-like sweetness, earthy-peaty notes, dark pit fruit, and a warm booziness to end. The nuanced aromas appeal to me but the flavour is a little too sweet and boozy for my liking. Mouthfeel is full side of medium-bodied, lush and silky middle, low carbonation, some alcoholic warmth going down. Not nearly as robust and full-bodied as you would expect for the style and weight. Overall, this was fun to try but I wouldn’t seek it out again.
