When drinking it has a good after taste. Pungent in the back of your throat. Similar to Violin Monster. profile - July 2, 2016
Rich, almost barley taste. Very nice.

As far as founders go, most of their selection are less then overwhelming and have less then original taste. This however is one of my favorites. Hides the alcohol well and is smooth as a winters night is long.

Intense focus on the malt. Sweetness. Too intense for me

It's ok. Wine smell, with a sweet oak taste. Very boozy. Some bitterness
