The tulip glass provides a nice, thick off-white head on top of th beautiful, burgundy body. A bit hazy, with bits of malt floating around in the glass to reassure that this is gonna be a no-holds-barred sort of brew. Aromatically flawless. Cinnamon raisin bread in scent, kind of. Malts out the ying-yang.
The short version of the nose: Extremely malty, but with a hint of alcohol to provide complexity. In length, it's a sexy combination of dark plums, brown sugar, coffee, and bread that I can't even truly defined. Unbelievable balance in the complexity, and so potent that it's impossible to miss any scent. Each compliments the other in a way that's almost indescribable.
As if to mock me, the flavor is identical. A thick, thick, creamy body carries a wave of malt on to the tongue, with brown sugar and dark fruits being the most obvious flavors of the bunch. Hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon round off the palate, giving this beer an overall sweet feel. As if not to feel one-dimensional, though, it finishes with a warm kick of hops that heats up the back of the tongue and lingers for sips-on-end, right to the last drop. Complex, delicious, amazing. This is close to God in a glass.
Overall/notes - I can't be a Jedi, because tonight I experienced a love so passionate that I can't describe it. Lovely beer all around, with only one or two equaling it, and none surpassing. This goes well a good, dark cigar that sweats. Recommended on those special days where you feel as if your life is going in the perfect direction. My God.

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.
