FINALLY tracked this down after missing the bottle sale a year back.

Imagine Bourbon County as an oatmeal stout; this is it. Smooth, boozy, with a nice thick mouthfeel, the creamy marshmallow taste mixes with a pleasant alcohol burn to create something really great. This should be distributed, ala BCBS.

Excellent. Just as good if not better than the bourbon county series.
