22 oz bomber poured into a Firestone Walker 6 oz. brandy snifter

Appearance: A lovely ruby, orange colored beer, clear, shiny, head disappeared fairly quickly, little to no bubbles, a really nice looking beer.

Aroma: Big coconut, candy, toffee aromas on the nose, toasted coconut, macaroons, vanilla, caramel, very sweet aromas, not getting any alcohol on the nose, smells great.

Taste: Like the nose, big toasted coconut, macaroons, toffee, candy, vanilla, sweet malts, there is a bitterness that gives way to all these different sweet flavors, some alcohol burn on the back end, taste really good.

Mouthfeel: medium mouthfeel, dry finish, not a big syrupy beer.

Overall: I love this beer, FW has the best barrel aged program in the country, too bad this is discontinued, not as smooth as Sucaba, but I think this has a rougher profile than Sucaba, really good, worth $16.99 per bottle, where ever I find it, I am buying and saving it, a must try.

On tap at Pangea Sacramento. Looks a smooth textured copper to ruby to medium dark brown.
Rich smell of plum, apricot, toffee and butterscotch.. Taste is semi sweet cocoa, toffee, plums, fermented fruit, butterscotch, almond/marzapam and getting lots of bourbon on the finish. Heavy mouthfeel with a sweet, smooth texture and plenty body. Laced the glass like rings at every sip..serve with desserts, vanilla ice cream, flambés, winter dishes, such as roasted kabocha or butternut squash, pumpkin pie; upmost rich-dishes such as anything browned or buttered or candied!!!
