2014 vintage

L - Pours a brown mahogany colored body with a fizzy one finger light khaki head. The head dissipates quickly with no lacing left behind.

S - I'm definitely picking up a mix of the orange peel, bourbon and bitters. Some raisins and cinnamon on the very back end, faint.

T - Tasty! Orange peel and bitters to start off. That is followed by the oak, bourbon and vanilla as well as raisins and spicy cinnamon.

F - Low carbonation and medium bodied. The abv is well hidden.

O - Fantastic "cocktail inspired" beer! Probably one of the better ones I've had. The orange peel, bitters and cinnamon go very well with the base beer and bourbon barrels.

Bottle share, thanks to Darrel. Complex, spicy, savory. Dark brown with minimal beige head. Sweet nose, cola? Overall very enjoyable, sweetish, gentle warmth.
