On tap @ Founders. Served in to snifter.

A - Dark amber with a small layer of cream coloured head.

S - Bourbon, caramel, toffee and maple.

T - Big bourbon and oak up notes front followed by The caramel, maple and toffee. The base beer and the barrel characteristics are well integrated.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation. (339 characters)

I really liked this beer...very complex with a lot of different flavors. You could definitely detect the maple bourbon influences throughout, including the nose, initial flavor, and the finish. It was a little fizzier than what I prefer, but it was not too much. Medium body, nice tan froth from beginning to end, and medium hoppiness. Well balanced overall. Fun! (363 characters)

Going through old tasting notes

A-8oz snifter pour. Nice honey hued body with a little bit of a white head. Leaves a slick and residue on top and on the edges of the glass.

S-A caramel shop perhaps? Huge amounts of sweet syrup and honey. Brandy forward but no real alcohol burn.

T-Delicious...unbelievable. Very sweet with the brandy aging imparting huge flavor into Red's Rye's cousin.

M-Very smooth, not a ton of carbonation. Easy drinker although the higher abv is hidden.

O-One of the better Founders beers I've ever had. (544 characters)
