On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, chocolate syrup, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with chocolate syrup, toffee, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with nice vanilla aromas and flavors, but I am not really getting any identifiable pistachio qualities.
