Filled 32oz growler at the brewery, great price ($7 with the glass).

Looks like it has a brown ale base alright. Nice rocky head with decent clarity.

The aroma is spot on for what the name purports. The cinnamon is very potent though. The raisin aroma is freaking awesome, not sure if they managed this with malt alone or if adjuncts played a role in this. Brown sugar sweetness.

Cinnamon is also big in the taste, nice oaty raisin flavors going on as well. Again, I found this to be essentially spot on for what the beer is trying to accomplish.

Much thinner body than I'd have guessed (or would prefer). Medium carbonation.

Overall this was very well done despite the miniscule body.
