Picked this up from a great trade with Evan! Dark brown pour with a touch of mahogany and a two finger beige head that quickly fades with pretty nice lacing. Very complex nose with lots of caramel malt and toffee along with hints of dark fruits, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, tobacco, butterscotch, and quite a bit of booze. The taste is just as complex. Loads of caramel, toffee, and oak up front along with hints of vanilla, maple, brown sugar, butterscotch, dark fruits, tobacco, bourbon, nuts, booze, and subtle cocoa and black cherries. The mouthfeel is thick, full bodied, velvety smooth, and subtly creamy with a slight alcohol warming on the finish. Overall, this is a masterfully crafted beer. You truly get all the best characteristics of all the beers that make up this unbelievable blend. I think that Firestone Walker has now solidified itself as my favorite brewery.
