Draft, Oakland Park. Near black. Aroma is syrupy sweet molasses, maple donut, bourbon...decadent. Very sweet, again maple doughnut frosting. Very thick body with a slightly boozy kick. Decadent. Not getting much bacon but that’s not a big deal. Moreish for such a beast. You can really see the appeal.
