4.5/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
22 oz bottle, 12.5% abv. Big thanks to my brother for this, a birthday gift that I am opening almost 5 months later. A deep amber to near burgundy color, with a fairly thin kakhi head. Head trickles to a thin collar, but leaves some nice spotty lace.
Wonderful aroma here, bourbon, oak, vanilla and caramel. Dark fruit, figs and toffee. Candied fruit in there as well. Very complex.
Figs and toffee up front, in a great complex malt character. Some darker fruit, and almost a maye syrup flavor. Oak, vanilla, caramel and bourbon. So tasty.
Medium body, with very light carbonation. Some heat, but not what I would have expected. Great complexities all around. Another wonderful beer from Firestone Walker!
