Acquired a 750 ml bottle via trade with Hopscotch. From bottle 216/246 pours a semi-hazy dark reddish amber colored brew with a thin and fast dissipating off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, some dark pitted fruits, vanilla, a hint of caramel and some floral hops.

Finish is boozy, slightly metallic with some vanilla and dark fruit aftertaste.
