Tap @ Vine Street. Clear yet very dark burnt orange copper. Aroma is big and delightfull. Some whiskey tones, but under that there is oak, vanilla, some char, and toasty toffee. Taste is a little heavy on the whiskey booze, but again, under it is a big tone of toffee, vanilla, oak char, and sweet earthy maltiness.
