Once again, Firestone Walker doesn't disappoint. Poured from a bomber into an over-sized wine glass.

Pours a deep, jet black with a thick, frothy, cream-hued head that stands at two fingers. Settles down to nice lacing, with a generous layer of head.

The smell is immediately of rye, which I love. Notes of pine, roasted malts. Nice earthy, meaty nose.

First taste notes are rye and hops, followed by lingering notes of toasted barley and hops. Sme lingering bitterness provides good balance.

Mouthfeel is nice, a good creamy feel with nice carbonation.

Overall, very nice. Definitely would drink this one again, and the balance of rye and hops is spot-on.

mmmm... Wookey

It has taken maybe a case of this to review it, but this time, poured from 22 into gulden draak tulip

A: Jet black, some mahogany, with thin white head nice lacing
S: Smells like hops, farm hops
T: Dank Hops up front, rye, malts and a little roast finish, very nice complex layering of flavors from a hybrid style
M: IPA Style mouth feel with a little roast on the roof of the mouth that lingers

O: A great beer that mixes a few beer styles. It almost takes the character of a hoppy porter at times, then at others a black ipa. Very nice, FSW
