The beer pours out a murky dark golden/amber color, with a thin white head-------------- the aromas are of banana, cinnamon and whiskey------------- the flavors are of banana, booze, cinnamon, oak and whiskey, the beer has a medium mouthfeel with a boozy finish--------------- overall this beer was nice, it was a big beer the alcohol is not hidden at all making it a hot mess, wish all the flavors would of meshed together a little better, could of been something special--

Appearance: It poured a dark blood orange, almost reddish type color with a thick, bubbly head that slowly dissipated, being fed by a very large stream of carbonation up the side of the glass. Once the head did subside, it left behind a thick film on top with a moderate amount of lacing on the side of the glass.

Aroma: The aroma started with a whole heaping amount of cinnamon and spices that gave it an almost sour smell. On top of that, there was a sweet, fruity aroma that had a slight funk to it, not really what I was expecting from this brew.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, you get a ton of cinnamon right off the bat, mainly hitting on the back of the tongue and I would say slightly too much. After this, there was a slight bitter flavor from the whiskey barrels that supplied a decent amount of heat going down. The lingering flavors were mostly a woody cinnamon, with some fruity sweetness that tasted like apple sauce.

Overall: This was definitely an interesting beer with the nose being sour and sweet, but when it came to the taste, the cinnamon was a little overbearing, not letting a lot of the other flavors show very much.
