4.55/5  rDev +7.1%

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a Teku glass. Bottled on 5/15/14 stamped on the label.

Pours an opaque black color, about 50-60 SRM with a khaki colored head that dissipates slowly. Visible lacing all around the glass as it is consumed with a constant ring around the glass just at the surface of the beer.

Smells of roasted malt, sweet caramel, rich hop oils, and grass.

Tastes sweet upon first sip with a nice chocolatey middle and a dry roasted malt finish with a pleasant bitterness from the hop content.

Very slick on the tongue with a slight prickliness that leaves the mouth yearning for another sip. Leaves the mouth feeling dry upon swallowing but definitely compliments the palate.

One of the best ABA styles I have had the pleasure of consuming. Quite drinkable despite the 8.3% abv and very easy on the palate. Would definitely seek this one out.

Pours black. Not super dark black. No head. Smells great. Malty and sweet. You can taste the alcohol but without the over the top bitterness. Glad I got a chance to try it.

Wife's Review:"It is ok."

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

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with two fingers of creamy tan head.

Smell - roasted malts, hint of rye malts, cocoa, citrus/piney hops, hint of pine resin.

Taste - Hit right away with the roasted malts and hint of rye malts followed by the cocoa,citrus/piney hops, and pine resin.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness from the piney hops.

Overall - For my first offering from Firestone, they deliver a solid Cascadian. The aroma could of been a little more pronounced with the hops as I found it to be more malt dominated. Other than that, a solid Cascadian and am glad to have finally tried a Firestone offering.
