Draft at P-ville. Pours turbid rusty brown color with off-white head. Nose was fruity, with plum, fig, bourbon, malt, peaty earthy notes, wood. Tasted very complex, with fruity and bourbon notes matched by earthy, peaty, woody, caramel, and mild vanilla notes. Came off like 2 parts barleywine, 2 parts dubbel, and 2 parts bourbon soaked fruit medley, and was a very good beer.
