Shared this bottle at the UFC tasting. We did the Founders horizontal leading up to this guy (Imperial Stout, Breakfast Stout and KBS). I had this on tap at Founders at the release day and after having it out of the bottle I figure it deserves a proper review. Poured out of a 750 ml bottle into a Deschutes snifter.
A: Pours a jet black with a great mocha colored head that lingers for a bit and resides to brown swirls and nice ring around the edge.
S: The maple syrup and the barrel really shine in the smell. Nice roasted coffee with a sweet vanilla and chocolate.
T: The coffee is more prevalent in the taste and is backed by a nice chocolate. Sweet vanilla mixes with the maple syrup and really makes the barrel shine. There is a little booze kick at the end to remind you that it's there. Everything is integrated so beautifully. Really fucking good.
M: Heavy bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Wonderfully carbonated to keep you stimulated. I could drink this every day.
O: This beer lived up to the hype and more for me. It's a shame that everyone is making this a whale, but I know I'll be able to have it again soon.
