On tap for the Feral One release party at Firestone Walker Barrelworks in Buellton, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, wood, and slight bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with brown sugar, caramel, wood, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a mellow barrel aged presence after 6 years in a barrel.

Serving type: on-tap

Volunteered at the AHA conference in San Diego and this was being poured at Paxtons session. It was the first beer and it was amazing. It was served at around 9am on Friday morning and it would go really well with some pancakes or french toast. The appearance was darker and the smell had a lot malt to it. The taste blew me away. Very good mouth feel. Would definitely like to have this again with some food.

I (Wiseman Nick ) ordered multiple free samples of this at the Firestone 14 Release yesterday (in Paso Robles, CA; not Escondido). Following review is based on notes taken at that time.

Served in a small (~5oz.) Firestone Walker snifter.

Appearance: Muddy brown body with amber highlights. Looks very thick and syrupy (a bit oily), and has absolutely no head. Carbonation appears to be very low.

Smell: Candi sugar, bourbon, molasses, vanilla, spices, and flowery esters. Caramel and booze picked up as it warmed. Really complex and interesting.

Taste: Bourbon, clove, flowers/herbs, molasses, and chocolate liqueur. The bourbon acted as a beautiful accent early on, but quickly became the dominant flavor once the beer warmed. As with the smell, very complex and interesting - balanced too. I dug it.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, syrupy, lightly carbonated, and malt-heavy. Not too warm or dry, though the bourbon barrel effects were apparent.

Drinkability: Very complex and balanced, though the bourbon quickly took over (in a bad way) as the beer approached room temperature. Definitely worth a try!

Serving type: on-tap
