Unbelievable stout! I was lucky to share a bottle of this with the owner of a bar in Jersey City, Iron Monkey, also a great pub with a huge selection. We opened the bottle and let it settle for about 5 minutes before we enjoyed. The stout just hits you with so much flavor all at once...I got hints of vanilla, maple syrup, coffee and a bit of heaven. Definitely give this beer a 5 minute cool down, I think if you drink it too cold you could miss some of the flavor. This beer definitely escalated the awesomeness of stout to the next level. I give this beer a lampshade-hat rating of 9.25. Cheers to Firestone Walker for a great beer!

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.
