Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

Orange-amber colour, clear, little carbonation
No head whatsoever
Strong whiskey, coconut, cornbread, Advocaat and malty aroma
Medium creamy, velvety, slick, warming mouthfeel with some carbonation
Whiskey, woody, nutty, grassy, perfume (fragrant?) and slight herbal flavour
Sweet, warming, slightly hoppy, bitter and floral aftertaste, lingering, no carbonation
Not quite right

Smells good - malty vanilla with a whiff of bourbon booziness. Initial taste is lovely - smooth vanilla. But then the overpowering alcohol kicks in and a slightly unpleasant medicinal/metallic aftertaste spoils the finish.
It's like Innis and Gunn made worse and more expensive. Pity.
