On tap, 9oz snifter.
A - Gorgeous deep red pour, with a surprisingly light brown head. Great looking beer. Lacing is solid.
S - Absolutely one of the best smelling beers out there. It's a home-run of aromas. Huge bourbon notes, big maltiness, hops are present but take a bit of a back seat. Vanilla and woody notes from the barrel are the stars.
T - Big bourbon notes with a great base malt flavor. This really is a great beer. The notes I get are closer to BCBS than KBS, which is pretty interesting. What can I say? Bourbon, malt, vanilla and wood. Perfect.
M - Thick and chewy, but not annoyingly so. Perfect thickness for the style and coats very nicely. Carbonation is perfect, but I'm having this on tap so your mileage may vary.
O - Just outstanding. I don't dabble into this style often, but this beer is one I'll always drink when I see it. Founders doesn't mess around with their barrels.
Serving type: on-tap
