It was only about a week and a half ago that Founders released KBS nationwide, and we’ve already got the second release of their Barrel Aged Series – Backwoods Bastard. While this time around, Backwoods Bastard is a year round release rather than a limited edition, how does it stack up against it’s 2017 counterpart that was released only about 6 months prior? Well if that’s actually a question that’s been keeping you up at night, you’re in luck! I’m not only reviewing 2018’s Backwoods Bastard, but I’m conducting a vertical tasting up against the 2017 variety!
ackwoods Bastard is Founders 5th in their 2017 barrel aged series lineup – following Frootwood, KBS, Doom and DKML. Backwoods Bastard is a BBA Scotch Ale, which follow’s Founders trends of releasing a different style for each of the beers in their barrel aged series.
While Backwoods Bastard is the fifth in their bourbon barrel aged series, an unnamed beer is slated to release in December – many speculate this may be CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout), but that is unconfirmed by Founders so far, and hasn’t been released since 2014.
Hey Everybody! On today’s video, I was over my friend Dave’s house and we decided to put Dark Horse Brewery’s Scotty Karate Scotch Ale vs the Bourbon Barrel Aged version to see what the difference was all about. They both weigh in at 9.75% so what makes them so different? Click the link below to watch the video!
