The Original. Pours black at night. Smells strong, but the flavors on this are spot on. Bourbon soaked raisin sweetness is the best I can do for a simple description. In my opinion, the best part about this beer is the velvety feel! It coats your entire mouth and stays there for a while. If you are looking to try any of the "days" from The Bruery, I would suggest going with this one first.

Edit: 2016 is straight fire! Loved it!
