4.45/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

P: Pours a hazy pale straw color with a massive milky head. Intricate lacing accumulates along the edges.

S: Sugary pound cake, butterscotch bourbon aroma, subtle whiffs of garlic bread. Complex hop aroma thst is hard to identify the type due to the sweet bourbon.

T/M: Sweet butterscotch bourbon, saltine crackers, herbal tea, toasted toffee, hints of pine resin, spices and a floral bouquet. Bitterness really overtakes the sweetness in the finish and leaves with a waxy feeling of just eaten carrots. Bourbon really shines once warm. Medium body with a moderate effervescence that really creates a great atmosphere for the palate.

O: Hands down the best Founders offering I have had. Bourbon is strong but the hops still shine through at the end. Great dryness and balance between bitter and sweet. Great beer that should be sought out.

Serving type: bottle
