Founders Backwoods Bastard Bourbon Barrel-Aged Scotch Ale Review

Pours a deep mahogany color with a thin tan head.  Aromas of woody smoke, caramel, vanilla, and roasted malt.  Full body with a big malt presence.  Flavors of dark malt, dark fruit, and earthy spice.

Similar profile to a Scottish Wee Heavy, but with added complexity from aging in bourbon barrels.

Available seasonally in November in bottles and on draft.
