Mucho gracias to maximum12 and wife for sparing a bottle for my enjoyment. Me and my pathetic little beer collection thank you.
Pours a caramello colored brown. Not a lot of head, as is often the case with Founders. Smell is kicky with bourbon, vanilla, caramel, nut, indistinct malty sugar.
We had just finished up another beer, wife complained that one was too tame. She takes one sip of this and proclaims "And the same can't be said for this one! Goddamn!". That is meant as both praise and disbelief on her account, but for me, it's unadulterated praise. This one is as boozy as Barney Gumbel. Molasses rides shotgun, along with malt, caramel, and vanilla all subtly taking up the rear. Great.
Smooth and lightly carbonated.
Damn. Great beer. Wish they made it year-round, and that it wasn't so hard to score.
