Drinkin 2010 Parabola and rockin out to Chest Fever by The Band.
I know she's a tracker, any scarlet would back her
They say she's a chooser, but I just can't refuse her
She was just there, but then she can't be here no more
And as my mind unweaves, I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves, she receives
Beautiful black pour with tan lacing ringing the cup. Complex nose yealds bourbon and wood, sweet toffee, coffee and a little spice. Flavors abound in this beauty as well. Robust sweet bourbon and chocolate are balaced by roast and little char, almost nutty flavors. Bitter coffee and vanilla play around the edges. A very faint vinous character emerges as the beer warms. Smooth and silky on the tounge, Parabola is a boozy sipper that will benifit from some age.

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.
