12oz pour from bottle fresh from Founder's into wineglass
A- Pours a clean mahogany ruby red caramel color. Thin tan head with minimal lacing.
S- Bourbon, Brown sugar, Caramel, Dark fruits - Sweet and pungent
T- Initial sweet raisin flavors hit the tongue, followed by balanced caramel, molasses, brown sugar sweetness with a hint of roasty, darker malt flavor. Heavy Graham Cracker / Vanilla flavors. Bourbon sweetness rounds out the flavor profile with a little heat in the finish. As the beer warms vanilla starts to take the stage. Black Cherry or chocolate-covered cherries are distinguishable when exhaling through the nose. Overall a very complex flavor.
M - Thick, slightly oily mouthfeel. Fairly carbonated.
O - Very impressed by this beer. It has re-defined the style for me. A great sipper that competes with some of Founder's others Barrel Aged behemoths. After buying two 4pks, I'm ready to commit to stocking up on this to get me through til next years release.
