An unmoving static murk of dark amder rust topped ever so lightly by a off-white creamy foam and patches of bigger bubblyness. Good amounts of glaring, oily glued lace of droopy strings and sporatic spots coat the goblet well.

A whiffer of warming complexity as heavy sweet maple, deep earthy oak, Dominican maduro cigar filler, bourbon, vanilla pods, apricot jam, and apple and pear preserves all mingle to make one spectacular nose filling waft of warmth. Definately showing its 12% with just enough care as to not to overwhelm.

Taste is immaculately structured into a deep sweetened brigade of deep dark juicy tropical fruits, cararmelized breadyness, with a fairly huge rich bourbony character that carries across a forest of maple trees dripping their fresh sap to make for warming pile of apple and apricot jam slathered hotcakes. Delish!

Thickly rich, tangy, heavy, sweetly deep, malty, mapley, warm and super smOOth. Very decadent, lush, creamy, melty, gooey, and warm, warm, warm yummy. Crafted complexity abounds as it sits and cinders in your glass, palate, and memory.

Leave it to Founders to create something this phenomenal! A must try. Absolutely yum!
