Sampled at 2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. Thanks to my brother for bringing this up from Florida! Reddish coppery brown. Lots of bourbon, cinnamon, some sublte fruity notes, too.

On tap at Apex on the last day of Stout Fest. Dark clear amber with a creamy head. Sweet dry tropical fruitiness, vanilla, bourbon, some orange rind, full body and moderate carbonation, bitter on the finish but everything is quite strong in terms of flavours and just doesn’t seem to blend well together.
