Drank on tap out of a tulip at Woodstock’s Pizza 10/17/14. The next guy’s tulip tapped the keg. The only thing I can compare it to was a Firestone Walker XVII which I opened right away and thought was too sour and strong. XVI was mellow and delicious.

I have hold to this beer for almost two years, this was my very first expensive beer, I think I paid about $20 for one bottle but coming from traditional beer it was pretty expensive.
Nice thick head and deep charred caramel flavor with really nice whiskey hints, body wise it has a nice full bodied texture. Definitely an anniversary beer. Well done fi
