22oz boxed bomber poured into a snifter. This will be the third installment I've tried of FW Anniversary Ales, starting with 15 and 16.
A- Pours brown/ borderline dark red with some light emerging through the top sides of the glass. A small amount of khaki colored head fades to the side of the glass. Lots of lacing on the glass as well.
S- Sweet caramel, toffee, bourbon, and oak. It smells boozy, actually burnt my nose taking in a big whiff.
T- Very nice beer. I get an oaky vanilla up front at first sip. Additional tastes bring about caramel and dark fruits, along with the warming from the bourbon with each sip. Very complex and tasty.
M- Medium bodied, flavorful, boozy like any FW barrel aged offering.
I enjoyed this beer fresh much more so than 16 last year. It drinks hot like all Firestone BA offerings I've had, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
