Served at the Graduate in Davis Ca... Thanks to them for putting this out there for the masses to take part in.
A- dark black with a cherry hue along the rim. No carbonation at all for this 12.5% beast.
S- bourbon, walnut, tobacco, cherries and molasses .
T- brighter than expected with a lovely hot affect similar to carbonation but directly from the backbone of hard core bourbon barrel. Nice anise aftertaste representing the imperial stout well. Tons of leather and molasses flavor.
M- perfect for the style!
D- great flavor and limited release are worth the price. Don't miss an opportunity regardless of the sacrifice. Highly drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
