Founders Brewing Co. DKML Imperial Malt Liquor Age in Bourbon Barrels


Picked up Founders Brewing Co. DKML Imperial Malt Liquor, 14.2% ABV at Vintner Wine Market here in Charlotte, NC. This is a Bourbon barrel aged beer is aged in a bourbon barrel and dry-hopped and has corn added. DMKL pours an orange color with a quarter finger white head that fades into a nice halo giving you a strong boozy alcoholic aroma, you definitely can smell whiskey/bourbon on DKML. Taste is strong with flavors of whiskey/bourbon and on the end, you get a big bitter alcoholic note with a warming alcoholic finish and a bitter whiskey aftertaste. If you look past the high ABV.strong alcohol this isn’t a bad beer, I say it’s a C. This beer doesn’t have a lot going on beside the bourbon barrel aging and the 14.2% ABV but those qualities were not too bad. I don’t think this is one that I will come back to anytime soon nor would I recommend it. It was interesting enough. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
