12oz bottle, ceramic mug, bottled 5/23/13.
It's a rich looking beer the transparent deep brown of raisins with a head like light brown sugar.
It's also rich smelling; boozy rum raisins, some toasted whole grain bread, oatmeal with brown sugar, creamy.
Not as sweet as one might expect, dark coffee grounds, earthy hops, and boozy fermented brown sugar make for a decidedly bitter beer set against some raisin.
Creamy, medium-high carbonation, definite fizz on the tongue, gets a bit thin and dry in the finish with obvious alcohol.
This seems to have evolved since I bought the six pack. It was sweeter and it seems to be entering a boozy phase. It is a wonderful rich blend of hops, raisins, brown sugar, and malts.
