Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my snifter, the color is a dark brown with off-white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Lots of lacing left behind.

The aroma is delicious. Right up front is a nice bourbon presence that isn't overwhelming. Alongside of that is vanilla, oak, caramel, chocolate, and the slightest hint of fruit.

The taste is boozy, along with all of the other flavors mentioned in the aroma: lots of caramel and chocolate, vanilla and oak are in the middle-ground, and a smooth sweetness at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, surprising for a beer like this, but very smooth and low carbonation. The bourbon lingers on my tongue a bit.

This is a sipper, although I'm tempted to have two in one sitting despite the high alcohol. The flavors are so well-blended they just invite you back for sip after sip after sip. Would be interested to age this one for a year and see how it develops.

Acquired this 2009 bottle in a trade with nflmvp. Thanks Steve! ABV listed at 8.7%.

Poured into a Rémy Martin snifter.

Appearance: Tan, foamy crown quickly dissipates to a hair-thin halo. The body is a deep auburn color that turns crimson when held to light. Yellow-orange near the edges. Clarity is nice, but I spot quite a few floaties inside. When swirled, the beer leaves an oily residue coupled with spotty lacing on the walls of the glass - neither of which have a lot of staying power though. I'm excited. Time to dig in!

Smell: Strong molasses/caramel, sweet bourbon, and loads of grain. Mmmmm... this is bourbon barrel-aging done right! Alcohol is present but totally tolerable. Vanilla and flowery esters complete the aroma.

Taste: Clean grains, caramel, and bourbon. More earthy and alcoholic than the aroma let on, but still damn good. Subtle, flowery hops come through in the finish, mixing with dry bourbon. After reading a couple of the other reviews, I started picking up on raisins, too. Still, I'm not getting a whole lot of complexity from this one, but it is well-balanced and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Rich in flavor, bu the body is thin and oily with very light carbonation. Finishes dry and prickly, leaving bourbon-y undertones all over the palate. Still, this is working well for me right now - it's only 11:00AM. Still, a thicker body would be nice.

Drinkability: I just bombed a final exam, and Backwoods Bastard is acting as the perfect comfort beer. A little more complexity would be nice, but then again my mind is totally shot right now. Not great, but certainly recommended.

Let this one sit a few months in my "cellar", it made a difference.

A: Dark amber brown with an intense haze of suspended particles. The head, which isn't particularly long lived, is a yellow-beige, mostly small bubbles. It really needs more dexterity though it leaves an OK lace.

S: Intense sweet caramel honey. A little bit of yeast. There's the aroma of...bacon, maybe a little coco and vanilla as well.

T: More sweetness, but other flavors as well. More vanilla, burnt caramel. A light smokiness. No alcohol or any of the yeast from the nose. A very nice lingering aftertaste.

M: Smooth, not the smoothest but smooth. it leaves a nice texture after it's gone as well.

D: Very much nicer than it was when it was fresh.

12oz bottled on Nov 16, 2009. Served in a Duvel tulip at cool room temperature. Pours copper brown with a two finger beige head that reduces to a foamy ring and light cap, leaves some nice lacing.

Aroma is wow, big time vanilla and oak, bourbon/whiskey, alcohol, a bit of caramel and chocolate, wood is the centerpiece of the aroma, smells of a woodworking shop.

Flavor is rich caramel, chocolate, cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, mild alcohol but pretty smooth considering the bottle's young age. Some sweetness overall.

Mouthfeel is quite rich and smooth, yet occasionally a bit watery, low carbonation.

Damn, this is a treat. I'm already a huge fan of Dirty Bastard and the bourbon barrel aging is blended so well in this one, particularly balanced in the flavor. More, please!

Chilled 12oz into a glass. Received as an extra in a trade from RoyMunson (I think). Thanks!


Second bottle, apparently 2009 vintage, received.... hmm, I don't know who gave this to me. I do appreciate it, because I enjoy this beer.

A: Pours a murky reddish amber color with half an inch of off-white head. Retention is not so great, and the final appearance is a light film and thin collar on the brew, with some wisps of lacing down the glass.

S: Wow, this bourbon-barrel aged, all right. Loads of caramelly bourbon, vanilla, nuts, buttery oak. The barrels overwhelm the base beer here, but it's still good.

T: The initial taste is a boozy, burnt bourbon-caramel sweetness with hints of raisin and chocolate. It's hoppy, but not in any distinct fashion; just enough to keep the beer from getting cloying. There is a nutty, buttery vanilla component in the mid-taste that reflects the barrel contribution. The tannins are soft and muted; in a discussion I ventured a guess that French oak had been the source of the wood. The aftertaste is lightly tannic with some lingering hop bitterness (kind of earthy). I'm not pretending for a second that this is a balanced brew; it is very bourbon-forward. Lots of strong flavors here. But they're well-meshed. This would be a pretty excellent cigar beer, I think.

M: Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation that gives it a creamy mouthfeel. The heat is obvious; there is a definite warmth in the finish that takes away from this category.

D: A phenomenal beer. I had this side by side with Dirty Bastard, and I loved the way the barrels change this one. I will seek out more in the future.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a thistle.

Pours a ruddy brown, murky with a decent head that settles to a ring and leaves a good amount of stick.

Aroma is of earthy malt, oak and booze. Vanilla and liquer like smells come in the middle. Faint whiffs of dark fruit and dark rum.

Flavor is sweet earthy malt that explodes into phenolic alcohol. Sweetness holds a small amount of strange complexity, vanilla, oak, bourbon and dark malty sweetness. Throughout the flavor there is booziness, tot he point where it is almost cloying. Finishes hot and fusel with alcohol being predominant.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Carbonation is good.

Drinkability is decent, considering the ABV. I couldn't get past the fusel alcohol and booziness of this one. I have had +10 ABV beers that were more subtle with the alcohol.

Still a good representation of the style. More smoke would be nice but it was a good drink.

Dull dark brown color with a short-lived tan head. Not exactly stunning, but few of the Scotch Ales I've seen have been either.

Aroma is dominated by a biting bourbon with the caramel malt coming in much softer. Buttery and woody characters become more apparent as things warm up.

Bourbon is large and in charge, but scotch characters are better integrated in the flavor than smell. Sweet caramel and toffee malts along with some vanilla come in after the initial hit of bourbon. Finish follows up slightly bitter with a nice touch of smokyness .

Mouthfeel is about the right consistency for the style, although it could be a little smoother.

Edit: Oct 2010 - have had this beer a couple of times with some age on it and find that it's much better. Bourbon and heat die down and allow more of the Wee Heavy character to become evident. There's even a bit of the smokyness that wasn't there when I had it fresh. Bourbon's still very evident, but enhances the base beer instead of competing with it.

Picked this up from Kane at Roof Brothers in Paducah today... Enjoyed while watching "The Informant" with Matt Damon...

Pours a super murky dull brown with a very thin wispy head... Very thick and viscous looking...

Huge malty aromas rolling off of this.. Lots of oaky bourbon here as well as hints of even some chocolate-like aspects...very nice and rich smelling...

Big dose of sweet maltiness up front with a kick of barrel-aged bourbon following up right behind it.. There's an earthiness here that's really nice as well...very boozy and rich...

A real sipper here...rich and malty and boozy and a pleasure to sip and enjoy...

Not the biggest, thickest head, but what's there is light tan and it leaves tons of lace splotches for you to remember it by. And with swirling, those tiny splotches positively wallpaper the glass. The color is a jeweled burnt ruby color. Off to a great start...

A healthy dose of wood hits the nose from the get-go. The bourbon essence is there, but it's the wood itself that calls attention. There's a faintly fruity/musty smell in the background, and something recalling cotton candy, but between the wood/bourbon and generous alcohol presence, anything else has a hard time getting through. But what's in the nose is very nice.

Flavor is incredibly balanced, offering equal flashes of fresh green wood, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, cherry pipe tobacco, leather, pineapple and green peppercorn. For 10.2%, the alcohol presence is measured...although given what Founders are going for here, you'd miss the alcohol if it didn't show through, and it certainly does.

The knockout flavor is aided by a remarkably smooth, silky feel, no real stickiness and a nice buoyancy that works very well with the tastes on the tongue.

A bourbon barrel-aged Scotch Ale seems a no-brainer, but obviously it's the bourbon stouts that are more popular. Backwoods Bastard is so totally smooth, not near as cloying as could be imagined from a beer of this construction. But we should, by now, expect Founders to have a firm handle on anything they choose to do.

Pours a hazy walnut brown with a thin tan head, packed densely with carbonation but patiently subsiding to leave little lacing behind.

Sweet malt aroma is second to the aggressive bourbon/wood notes with hints of vanilla and caramel as well as pepper and similar spices.

The palate is similar to the nose, more spice, significant bourbon flavors, faint sweet malt, and just a touch of earthy hops.

I guess the body of this beer would be considered medium, but the palate is certainly aggressive. Medium to little carbonation, and as smooth as a brew of this assertiveness can be.

This beer is antagonistic for lack of a better word. Certainly worth a try, it stands out among some of the barrel-aged brews I have enjoyed recently. The "bastard" on the label pretty much summarizes the beer. If you are a scotch/bourbon/whiskey, etc. drinker, you will enjoy the intricacies of this brew.

pours a beautiful, ruby amber with a ruby tinted two finger. flakes of sediment throughout the glass. the smell is strong and boozy, dominated by bourbon, oak, caramel, and vanilla, with backrounds of malt. complex and lovely. I found myself smelling this one for awhile, a little hesitant to try it. didn't want a mouthful of bourbon i think. the taste is not as strong as the smell, with flavors of vanilla, sweet malt, scotch, and booze with a hint of a bitter finish. the mouthfeel is so velvety and silky. definitely a slow drinker. i could see not liking this beer a few years ago. some people around the room both loved it and disliked it, but it is a experienced nerds beer i think.

Nice and rich sipper. Stimulating balance of malt and bourbon aged notes.

Presentation: 12 oz bottle. Old fashion design around the portrait of an old bearded man holding an axe in the forest, mixed with the Founders branding. Short description as "Ale aged in oak bourbon barrels". Shows date of bottling (11/16/09), IBUs (50), and Alc. (10.5%) Poured into a snifter.

A - Amber brown with a faint haze, and a thin head that fades quickly with a few notes of lacing.

S - Bourbon, oak and vanilla notes over the malt heftiness. Not too assertive or remarkable but nice nevertheless.

T - Here it works best with the vanilla, oaked bourbon notes taking center stage, dried fruits and malt notes in the background.

M - Medium leaning on a fuller side, with a smooth and dry finish. Little but adequate carbonation.

D - Nice sipper, and enticing enough to follow with another one. Great to share too.

Notes: A nicely aged scotch ale. Pleasing and memorable.

Paid $5.99 for a 12oz bottle from Perry's Liquor in Livermore, CA. Poured into a Bruery tulip to review.

Half inch tan head consistent of relatively large sized carbonation bubbles. No retention. Dark raisin brown in color. Minimal lacing.

Aroma is (in order) molasses, caramel malts, brown sugar, bourbon, oak and toffee.

Oak and caramel malt hold up the dominating bourbon flavor. Quite boozy.

Mouth is better carbonated than I was expecting. Alive and even some crispness. Medium body, medium finish of oak and bourbon. Proper drinkability.

With this beer rated quite well, I am beginning to think I should take a break altogether from purchasing bourbon barrel aged beers. This is another example of one that is just too boozy. I guess I like to separate my bourbon and beer drinking habits.

Pours a dirty brown with a thin off white head that dissipates pretty quickley.
Smells of sweet vanilla and oak with a tiny bit of bourbon. I do pick up some of the caramel.
Very earthy taste but with a sweet malt backbone, gram crackers. A little boozy on the end. This beer is big and flavorful.
Mouth feel is thick and with everything going on in this beer it is a sipper.

Poured into yet another pint glass

A - Pours a very nice hazy toffee color with about 1 finger of caramel colored foam with some good lacing.

S - A Terrific smell of bourbon, toffee, caramel, dark bread, and malty sweetness, great aroma!

T- The strong taste of bourbon comes through along with the sweet malts and caramel flavors.

M - Full mouthfeel with some buttery creaminess.

D - I definitely enjoy this beer and glad I have a few more left. Congrats to Founders for another outstanding effort.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a dark brownish-red with a small white head. The aroma is awesome, lots of cherry, vanilla and bourbon. The flavor is just as great, with the same cherry, vanilla and bourbon notes, with the vanilla being the most dominant flavor. There is very little detectable alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is low.

Pours a copper color with a moderate off-white head. Great taste of vanilla with a definite bourbon characteristic. Sweet and malty, with notes of brown sugar. Extremely tasty! Carbonation is a bit subdued, but it's smooth and fairly full. There's a definite alcohol burn, but it's not offensive.

Truly a fantastic brew. Wish I had bought more than one - now I have to wait 6+ months for more! Dammit.

A - Nice mix of deep red and brown, clearly unfiltered, with an off-white head. Good chunks of lace down the glass left by a fast depleting head.

S - The first nose is like sticking your nose in a bourbon barrel...sweet and pungent bourbon with a great malty backbone. Hops aren't too prevalent because the other aromas dominate.

T - This is where this beer really shines. Starts off with wonderful sweet malty mash flavors but the bourbon kicks in real quick. The bourbon isn't harsh or hot at all but amazingly pleasant, it's all the flavor and none of the burn. Right at the end the hops pop in and their bitterness blends with the bourbon nicely to give a great spicy finish

M/D - Heavy body with some large carbonation bubbles but somehow still smooth on the tongue. Sweet finish but has a nice alcohol warmth. Way too easy to drink for such a high alcohol content.

For a widely available seasonal beer this one is terrific and definitely a must try for all big beer lovers.

Whap - that is the sound of this beer smacking you in the face on first sip. An immediate onslaught of bourbon and vanilla oak, some sweet malt and fusel alchohol. After a couple more sips to acclimate, the alcohol retreats but does not leave the background. Malty sweetness emerges and the beer with a shot impression lingers. A bit more boozy than I care for.

08 vintage. I'm planning on doing an 09 immediately following this one.

Pours a very dark amber/light mahogony that displays orange hues when backlit. The head is a nice tan, but doesn't stick around long, even with an aggressive pour. The smell is absolutely phenomenal. Tons of oak, tons of bourbon. Sweet, sweet fruits. Orange, acai berry, lemon, etc. some brown sugar, syrup, and molasses. Maybe a hint of vanilla even.

Describing the smell I said "maybe" vanilla. Now I want to say "definitely lots" of vanilla. Right up front all the way through the aftertaste this is a vanilla lovers dream. Other notable flavors: oak, orange, brown sugar, and caramel. There is a nice bourbon burn on the back of the palate and the esophagus.
*Edit after opening the 2009*: The fresher version has more brown sugar, toffee, and the bourbon is more pronounced. Everything is more intense, and the beer is not as smooth. There is also an added flavor of green apple cider that is curiously missing from the 2008.

Unfortunately, the beer is undercarbonated, which is sad, because if it weren't, the flavors would come out much more and I would probably give it a five for taste. It is very nicely thick though. Given thickness, ABV, and sweetness, I'm not going to give it too high of a score in the drinkability department, though I will be drinking two of them.

Overall, one of the best scotch ales I've ever had. Another great Founders beer, go figure.

Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Its got a deep copper color with slightly rocky lacing. The smell is amazing. Its the best of both worlds, bourbon and beer. There are heavy vanilla flavors coming in from the oak and bourbon, mixed with the creamy robust flavors from the scotch ale. What a truly amazing beverage. The alcohol is present, but its not the focal point of this beer.

Thanks to Joe for the bottle. Your just helping me beat you in the race to 200, dude. Poured into a tulip glass on a snowy day while watching the winter Olympics. It has a dark red/brown color with just a wisp of a tan head. There are some small, flaky particles floating throughout.

The nose contains some toasted, oaky wood and alcohol. Vanilla is a bit strong and reminds me of vanilla extract. I would like more subtlety here. I'm not generally in to bourbon aged beers, so I appreciated that this didn't smell like it had a straight shot of whiskey in it, but the aromas of the beer itself were a bit underwhelming.

Flavor is rich caramel up front with some oak wood on the finish. Vanilla in the middle, and a bit too strong again. Slight dark fruits on the back. I'm glad this doesn't taste like whiskey, but there is a slight burn on the tongue and throat. The mouthfeel is unimpressive, and is the low light of this beer. It has a thin impact for its size. A bit thin, which carries a slightly syrupy liquor flavor in the finish. I would prefer heavier malt in the flavor mouthfeel.

This beer took me way to long to drink. It had some decent attributes, and some nice, subtle barrel character, but the base beer didn't impress me. It feels a bit lifeless in the mouthfeel, and the flavors just weren't my bag.

Another beautiful from beer from my great friend Stephen. Thanks!

A - Pours a syrupy caramel brown. An agressive poured yielded a nice frothy tan head. Great lacing.

S - Sweet malt in the nose. Further examination reveals oak and bourbon. Slight touches of alcohol. A bit buttery.

T - The fist taste is sweet malt. It is quickly high-jacked by the oak flavor. There is a slight taste of bourbon, but as you sip it more, the bourbon becomes more pronounced. The aftertaste is dry and slightly bitter. Other than the drying effect, the alcohol seems hidden.

M - Sticky and syrupy, coats the tongue well. The carbonation is pretty low, would have liked a bit more. Very dry finish.

D - A very nice beer. With so many stouts being aged in bourbon, it was nice to have a Scotch Ale. The style really lends itself to the bourbon. The ABV of this beers knocks it out of "session" territory, but I could drink maybe two of these in a night. It is a great sipper.

Hazed, deep dark crimson to brown, slimmed, dunnish head.

Sweet, bourbony aromatics right off the bat. Cherry wood and leather. Spices and smoke. Rich and luxuriant.

Taste: Very complex, too much going on to take it apart at first sip. You get the wood, the whiskey, and below the sweet Scotch ale at the base. Mmm, oaky...mmm, rich and bourbony. Starts sweet, gets dry and well-rounded, nicely balanced, and oozing over with wonderful flavor. You don't feel the 10% right away, but it gets in there, oh, yes...very nice. Not too much bourbon, which can be a detriment at times. If it weren't so strong or so expensive, I'd be at this quite a bit.

A: Pours dark hickory-brown into an oversized wine glass. A tiny head disappears quickly. The lacing is mostly dotty and sticky. When held to the light, this crotchety fella is impenetrable to the eye.

S: I don't really know how an aroma can be creamy, but this is. It makes me genuinely excited to partake. The bourbon/oak smells support a caramel-vanilla-maple malt aroma. I find myself taking this into my olfactory organs over and over. In Utopia, this is exactly how autumn in an enchanted forest would smell.

T: Rich. Full. Creamy. Chewy. Everything I detected in the aroma is present in the taste. Somewhat surprisingly, though, the maple sweetness that I smelled is just a little under-represented in the taste. I think the bourbon oak barrel flavor is overwhelming the malt sweetness a tad too much. The taste experience of a sip of this brew is akin to an Orchestra playing the hell out of a Mahler Symphony, only to fall about 10% short of reaching the full color spectrum at the climax of the piece.

M: Repeat the first four sentences of my taste review. I also enjoy the dryness of the finish, but I wish the sweetness of the brew would coat my palate just a a smidge more.

D: Excellent. This is a very well crafted beer. I could imagine having more than one of these in a sitting, but eventually the high a.b.v. would put an end to that.
