22oz into a tulip. Pours a murky mahogany brown w/ a thin beige head that settles to a transparent film of sea foam. No lacing but it does leave some boozy, sudsy legs on the glass with a swirl.
Aroma is a rich, complex blend of toffee, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark brown sugar, molasses, and booze. Wowee zowee.
Taste, likewise, is complex and flavorful. Tons of dark sugars, bourbon, molasses, toffee, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, rum-soaked pipe tobacco, and peaty smoky char.
Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, rich and dessert-like. A real sipper of a beer.
Overall, what else did we expect here but another masterpiece of blending and barrel aging by Firestone Walker? These guys know exactly what they're doing and they keep getting better at it.
