Best by 12/17/13.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that still tastes fine almost 2 months after the best by date.

A previous reviewer cited 12-15 dollars for a 6-pack. I get this for 7.99 at my local store. Definitely not sessionable(okay, so, I may drink two or more, but this will get you drunk). I drink them warm, mid-to-high 50's in to the low 60's. I love the grainy, malty, almost wild rice flavor I get. Somewhat nutty, but completely smooth and balanced. The alcohol is way too sharp when chilled in to the high 30's and low 40's, so the low reviews are reasonable if serving at low temperatures.

My bottle says 7.2% but it's not bourbon barrel aged. Paid 3 dollar for the single.

A - A nice deep cherrywood brown with a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head that pulls back to a thick sticky lace ring.
S - Very fruity yeasts and somewhat apricot preservative smell. Not much hops must be mixed in well.
T+M - Not much sweetness or fruity flavor from this. Body is light to medium and the taste is overall crisp with a well hidden ABV. If anything it does have some dark fruit flavor mostly raisins.

Overall this beer is easy to drink but because of the high price (12-15 dollars a six pack) it's really not worth the revisit or session. Pity because their "Exit 4" triple rocked my taste buds.
