Tasted like a cheap whiskey mixed with a porter. Very close to dumping that glass.

The flavor profile is so complex it takes half a minute to unravel. Notes of bourbon and alcohol to start are washed over with warm vanilla and caramel. Finishes with a flourish of alcohol, pecan, and smokey peat. A thinking man's beer.

Strong, sweet, full flavored, tastes like scotch.

Wow this beer is strong but I really love the bourbon taste. I love bourbon so this beer is right up my alley but bourbon haters aren't going to like the beer. Its 10% so don't plan on drinking too many at once. This is definitely a redo.

Founders can do no wrong! This bastard blows me away! A very sweet malty...bit of licorice bite. Some cherry. Incredible!
