Rare Corals? On tap @ Left Coast. Copper pour with an off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, brown sugar, and sweet potato. Caramel, maple, vanilla, and a bit of bourbon. Some sweet fruits in there, too. Flavor is quite sweet, but has a bit of tart alcohol to it as well. Lots of brown sugar, maple, and toast. Sweet vanilla, bourbon, and sweet potato. A touch of citrus peel on the finish. Smells nice, but the flavor gets kind of old after a few sips.
