A - a beautitul dark mahagony color whic is all but opaque. Barely one finger of a beige creamy head that dissapated quickly. Little to no lacing.
S- I was surpised how little nose there was, but from I could pick up it had a sweet, sugary base, bourbon, with molasses and malt.
T-what was missing in scent it far made up for in taste. It has a great bourbon and alcohol kick, with very nice touches of vanilla and caramel.
M-it is easy to drink, but has that syrup-like texture throughout.
O- a great treat on draft. Although it didn't have quite the kick that the bottle I had a couple of weeks ago. A fanatastic beer either way.

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.

A - Very dark ruby red. Head was a a little soapy and coarse-grained for my liking.
S - Predominantly sweet and fruity. Fruitiness is of raisins and sherry. Sweetness is of maple and caramel. My favourite part of this beer.
T - I'm picking up the sherry-fruitiness from the nose, although not any one fruit in particular. Not as sweet as I would have expected and not particularly sweet overall. I was hoping for a little more vanilla, a little more coconut and a little more spice. Where this beer is not found wanting is in tobacco flavours. This beer had me racking my brain to see if I had a cigar stashed somewhere in the house. It's sort of dirty and a tad leathery but I like it. A little bitter malt and bitter bourbon on the finish as well.
M - Thick enough, but like the rest of the beer it's just not quite there.
O - At first I was quite disappointed, however this beer definitely benefits from time spent in the glass. The most relatable beer I've had to Sucaba lately was Fremont's Bourbon Abominable, which for me, was clearly the superior beer. This was malty, sweet and sherry-like with nice tobacco notes, but I wanted more bourbon, coconut, vanilla, oak and spice. Sadly it did not live up to expectation.
