Can really taste the oak bourbon from the barrels. Balanced with and not overpowering.

I agree it is a bit hoppy balanced by carmel in taste but that may be the Scottish ale and oak. Mildly sharp on the tongue ro start but finish is smooth. profile - May 27, 2017
A scottish wee heavy brewed with molasses. It is strong, almost 10% ABV. You can smell the alcohol and almost taste it but the molasses takes over and masks it which is nice. It is a smooth drink, but it’s damn strong. It almost is like a liquor. Malt is awesome and the touch of molasses adds a nice roast and caramel character. Really good, but slow drinking and can only have one per day.

Strong as expected. Some carbonation, rich, malty, quick finish as with most Founders beers. Good stuff
