Dark pour. Brown head. Surprising amount of carbonation. Smell is sweet. Molasses vanilla whiskey. First sip has to be chewed. Raspberries and figs enter the mix. Damn different and damn good

Hebrew needs to take a blending lesson from Firestone walker. This beer is just sloppy and sweet. Way to much going on. The only thing I can say is it lives up to the "funk" in it’s name and not really in a good way. Drain poor.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, coconut, vanilla, and a touch of mint. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small tan head. The flavor starts with chocolate, molasses, and caramel. The finish has fruit, raisin, and oxidation. It?s full bodied with mild carbonation and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, the oxidation is a bit rough.
