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...
