Staying on a Founder's kick of late. More and more of their brews becoming available here in Northern Connecticut. Great!
This one pours a dark copper into my Chimay chalice. Light cream head that quickly fades, leaving beautiful lacing. Smell is faint bourbon.
Tastes are also mild. A little sweet raisin...somewhat metallic with some nice bitterness at the end. Warmth lingers for a while at 8.5%. Seems like its's seen the inside of a bourbon-barrel, even though I know it hasn't. Not sure if it's my taste-buds playing tricks on me due to the Backwoods Bastard I had the other night (also by Founders). That was one heckuva beer that I don't think I've recovered from yet. Will revisit that one soon with a review...anywho....
Light carbonation to this and overall a fine example of the style. Glad I bought six...will enjoy on several fall evenings.
Still thinking about that Backwoods though...

Ruby color with a small off-white head that dissipates almost immediately. A ring of soft bubbles is left around the glass but no lacing left behind.
Strong caramel malt in the aroma with a scotch/peat backbone.
Cloying sweetness from the malt and medium-bodied. Very rich but lacking complexity and is a little one-dimensional. Warming alcohol sensation in the finish.
This was a really underwhelming beer for me. I have enjoyed most of Founders' offerings so far, but this one just misses the mark for me. Not an undrinkable beer by any means, just something I won't be revisiting anytime soon.
