Bought from a Spec's in Houston, Tx.

First tried this last winter. Went back and bought a few bottles to save. What a fantastic beer. I'm already a fan of Turbo Dog, and while I like that beer, I love this one. This and Andygator have really impressed me lately from Abita.

I'd love to see this turned into a regular beer in their lineup. It borders on a porter in ways to me. Fantastic.
