4.14/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 2/2/14

Pours near black with ruby highlights. and a 2 1/2 finger tannish head. that leaves copious lacing.

Aroma of coffee and milk chocolate with dried fruit, ripe citrus and peppery rye.

Coffee more than chocolate in the taste . The roast is more apparent here as well, it's rather smokey. Sweet roast malt and tart citric hops.

Medium to medium full in body. Syrupy and moderately crisp. Slightly warming and somewhat drying.

Another excellent offering from FW. Rich and creamy. Full of flavor and aroma.

4.68/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A- Pours a beautiful foamy head from a 22 oz. bomber. (Used an IPA glass) An island of foam remains as a nice lacing is left behind on the glass. A dark brownish ale which allows some light through.

S- I'm getting a nicely roasted profile of scents from this ale, my sense of smell can't isolate all of it but it's damn good.

T- This is black IPA done right, it's like taking a beautiful IPA base and melding it with the roasted flavors that can be found in a good stout.

M- Nice amount of stickiness and bitter profile going on, it makes you want to crush an 8.3 ABV ale.

O- I'm becoming a Firestone Walker fanboy, this is a high quality black IPA and it certainly makes me understand the parabola quest that everyone seems to be on. I put this at the head of my black IPA class.
