On tap at Hops and Pie, first time I've seen this one and I'm excited based on FW XI. Amber color, not as dark as I'd expect. Aroma is booze, barrel, sugar. Flavor is sweet barrel, vanilla and way too much alcohol. This beer works much better in a blend than as a solo beer.

On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks in Buellton, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, citrus zest, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, brown sugar, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has a slightly better set of aromas in my opinion.
