On tap at southerly love brewfest. Pours a hazy mahogany brown on tap with bubbly ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of barrel up front, vanilla and toffee, then it falls to hints of dark fruit and molasses. Taste follows, more of the fruit on the tongue than the barrel, but nice balance. A little sweet, alcohol is present, light carbonation.
