Founders Brewing Company
Founders DKML Imperial Malt Liquor Bourbon BA
Style: Malt Liquor
Format: 355ml Bottle
Here you have what could be the first malt liquor worthy of a glass. Typically a slighted style, we thought we would class it up with a stay in the wood and a healthy dose of dry-hopping. A huge hit of corn gives this one a smooth sweetness while its time spent ageing in bourbon barrels will give you reason to share. Be warned: this one's a pry-off, not a twist-off.
Note, a letter from Founders regarding best before dates marked on their wood aged beers. This beer will age well, we recommend cellaring for up to 5 years from brewing date.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
14.2% of flavor
This is one that we shared at a craft beer tasting party.
It surprisingly does not taste like it is 14.2%. Compared to some of the other founders barrel aged beers we found this one going down quite easy. It is very malty, so wasn't able to note many hops in this one. However, it did not taste like a hard liquor. Enjoyable, Founders does not disappoint.
