The beer poured a deep brown with light hints of scarlett and a subtle off white head. The aroma was a caramel vanilla sweetness wrapped in a bourbon blanket. I wanted to dip my entire face in my glass, but I resisted the temptation. The bourbon was upfront but not overly dominant, just the right touch. It lended a smoky vanilla tone to the caramel malt sweetness of the beer that just glided along my palate. The Backwood Bastard had enough heft in the body and light carbonation to hold up to the heavy flavors in this enticing elixir. This was a truly phenomenal bourbon barrel aged brew and a real treat from Founders.
