750ml bottle (from a Piggly Wiggly in Alabama, btw), poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Clear deep orange body beneath an inch of fine off-white froth. Great retention and lacing.

S: Major bourbon, vanilla, oak, and (rather distant) citrus hops. It's all about the barrel, and the barrel is great.

T: Rich, luscious bourbon: vanilla, coconut, and spicy booze. Some grapefruit and herbal hops accentuate the woodiness and heady bourbon. Long, bittersweet finish. Terrific.

M:Thick, rich, creamy. Lovely.

O: My expectations honestly weren't high for this one, but it really blew me away. Not a DIPA by any means, but one of the better barrel-aged American Strongs I've had in a long while.

Cheers!

A: A nice darker amber color, a little bit transparent, a nice off white head at the top that left some nice lacing around the glass as you drank it.

S: Strong Hop notes up front slight hint of malts, the barrel is definitely present, good notes of brown sugar and vanilla, wild nose for an DIPA.

T: Almost exactly like the nose but more of malt taste, that hops are present and have smokey taste to it, the vanilla and barley is present.

M: Full bodied brew, with a good amount of carbonation, nice stickyness to it as well

O: This was a very good brew from Founder's although high abv the alcohol was hidden and the beer tasted fresh.
