4.2/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Paid around $1.79 for a single at Jungle Jim's...

The beer pours a clear chocolate colored base with a 1/8" white head, minimal head retention and lacing effects on the glass. The aroma is a sweet malt, slight tone of alcohol and smells like whiskey.

The taste add a layers of depth, the low carbonation overall makes it easy on the mouth, no alcohol present in the taste, the mix of sweet malts, whiskey/barrel flavor, and a touch of cinnamon and raisins on the buds, really unique and full flavored! Nice on the mouth due to the low carbonation and retaining head and very drinkable at 8.3% for a couple more beers of the like, and then it's nap time.

Final Thought: Another great brew from Founders in Grand Rapids, MI... circle them on the map!
