look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Deep amber body with some reddish tones. Head is a light tan, but does not last long, leaving a ring of bubbles around the edges of the glass.

S- Sweet caramel malt, toasted oak, almost a burnt sugar/ toffee aroma mixed in as well.

T- Lots of toasted oak barrel character to this one. Sweet caramel malts come through and leave some caramel/toffee flavors. A slight hint of a cider-like spice is there, but only briefly. For a big, malt-forward beer, this one is not overly sweet and not overly boozy.

M- A coating sipper, with a slight alcohol presence. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied.

O- It's an interesting beer that is subtle, but strong. Another example showing that Firestone Walker knows how to use barrels.
