This beer was first tried by a friend and I on a chilly Sunday afternoon in-between two music event that we were attending. It was an excellent choice all around. It has and great color and smell and was served in a sniffer glass. It is a sipping beer that will warm you right up. If you think of a scotch ale aged in a bourbon barrel you will have an idea about what this beer tastes like. If you enjoy their Dirty Bastard and you are a fan of whiskey this is a great beer.

A-Deep ruby read with a bubbly head. Poor retention and little to no lacing at all.
S-Srong, potent scotch whisky and vanilla
T-Followed the nose, mostly. Some banana was in there as well
MF-Too carbonated and crisp, I was expecting something smoother
O-I did not enjoy this beer at all. It might be because I dislike liquor and it strongly resembled a scotch whisky. I guess this kind of beer is not my style, and now I definitely know so.

Poured from a bottle on 3/1/13. Bottle Dated 10/13/11.
A - Gorgeous hazy dark amber/brown color. Very little head and minimal lacing. It had some floating particles in it.
S - Wonderful nose to it. Bourbon, vanilla, and I think caramel/butterscotch. It makes my mouth water. Fantastic.
T - The taste is amazing. It follows the nose very well with an explosion of bourbon, vanilla, caramel/butterscotch, with an oak and malt finish. Nice balanced booziness to it.
M - Smooth, very easy to drink.
O - I love this beer. I only wish I could have found more of it. Founders did a wonderful job.
