4.48/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Thin, 1/2 finger cream head, quickly dissipating. Brew is a dark burgundy, nearly black, and glowing.
Very little on the nose, other than vanilla. It's an incredibly subtle aroma; even as it warms, just a bit of bourbon comes through, and maybe a hint of coconut and chocolate.
Incredible panoply of flavors immediately assaults the palate: toasted coconut, vanilla, and fried banana. Bourbon and oak are firmly in the background. Plenty of caramel and molasses, as well. Some chocolate.
Very noticeable sting, but not too much heat. Medium overall feel.
This is an incredibly complex beer that hits you with multiple flavors from first sip, and continues until the glass is empty. Absolutely fantastic.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark ruby/rust red in appearance with a soft and plump two-finger head.
Aromas of raisins, plums, roasted malts, and bourbon are most prevalent, a little sharp in the nose for my taste.
Dark fruits, slight vanilla, mainly sweet malt, finished with a splash of bourbon.
Mouthfeel is the only score here that did worse off, though a delicious beer, the mouthfeel of this is too grainy (IMO).
Overall this is another delicious example of Firestone doing everything right.
