Enjoying a bottle with the little lady (side note; she must have and affinity for F.W. yeast because she seems to enjoy all of there beers)
A- Pours a beep black, no light passes through. Had to pour a bit more vigorous towards the end to pull out a decent head. The beer is viscous, coast teh glass after a swirl.
S - Big a sweet, touches of bourbon and dark chocolate. On deeper inhales roasted barley comes through.
T- Very good beer. Eminence flavor. Sweet roasted barley up front that moves quickly to a complex bourbon finish. Bitter dark chocolate notes as well as plenty of vanilla notes round out the flavor profile.
M - A touch flat for an RIS in my opinion, the feel is silky smooth, pleasant taste on the tongue after each sip.
O- Love this beer, its a big sweet RIS with no major drawbacks and all the right flavors.

Poured my bottle of Firestone Walker Parabola 2014 into a snifter.
Appearance-Upon pouring Parabola into the snifter, I noticed the midnight black color. Extremely dark at first, but as it settled, a small amount of dark brown reddish foam stayed at the top of the pour.
Smell-Smelled a lot like the 2013 release with some additions. It had a boozy smell at first, with vanilla, bourbon, and the sweetness of chocolate.
Taste-Had a small amount of smoke. The more I drank, the more chocolate I got. A lot like the chocolate oak aged yeti but more complex.
Mouthfeel-Overall it was very smooth, not chalky like I had expected. It was a nice surprise, and very easy to drink even with the high alcohol content.
Overall-One of the best beers I've ever tasted. I have 3 more bottles of this years brew, and I'm very excited to see how this years vintage ages.
