Christmas surprise from the wife. Dying to try this.
appearance: Gorgeous darkest brown. Thick fudge head.
smell: Wow, I hate to use the word subtle on such a complex nose. In this case, it's a compliment, an easy going but amazing nose. Where to begin. Nothing takes front and center, but a big team of equal contributors. There's soft, dark chocolate, a hint of coconut, vanilla, bourbon, and oak. If ever there was a beer milkshake....
taste: More goodness. Not as awesome as the nose, but a delicious beer.
Left the preceding sentence in place, but as this masterpiece warms, each sip gets better and better, much like the Abacus my best friend generously shared with me. Upped from a 4.5 to a 5.
overall: Beer at it's best. Thankfully my wonderful wife picked up 6 bottles so I have those to age and enjoy.
5/26/13: Landed some batch 4 and just as awesome as 1 and 2 (missed out on 3). Drinking a 2 year old batch 2 cellared for a couple of years now. Damn. Thank you Firestone Walker and carry on you awesome masters.
