Served chilled into a tulip glass.
Pours a dark mahogany color with little head forming. A tannish surface layer does form and seems to sit on top like oil on top of water.
Definitely some booze on the nose up front. Sweet vanilla and oak also hits my nose with just a bit of fruit (cherries or plums).
Nothing too fancy, but nice and subtle.
Sweet fruit flavors come first with a bit of oak and some booziness. The bourbon flavors are definitely there, and so is the malts, but nothing over the top fancy with this one...straight shooter.
Fairly dry medium body with plenty of alcohol coming through to burn my palate. Chewy actually and not as dry as expected on the finish, but definitely the aftertaste sticks around.
Fairly drinkable brew...fair offering by Founders. A bit too "boozy" to drink more than 1 or 2, but enjoyable.
