Opened up a 2014 and poured into a pair of FW tulips.
A: Very dark brown/black. Almost no head, very light ring around the edges of the glass. No lacing.
S: Boozy and oaky. The booze is very dominate. Sweet and charred sugars.
T: caramel, bourban, toffee, earthy/oak. Great balance, nothing overwhelms. I feel like 2014 is not as alcohol hot as 2013, but I'm not comparing them side to side. Abv is up to 14% this year, but I can't taste it.
M: smooth, velvety, and syrupy. It's great, has great feel, but doesn't linger.... Keeps you coming back for more.
O: probably my favorite beer, definitely my favorite stout/barrel aged stout. I look forward to parabolas release every year and this year doesn't disappoint.
