Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The espresso coffe lends roasty caramel, toffee, baker's chocolate and molasses to the big rich character of Parabola. The complementary flavors pair well with Parabola's rich malt and smokey oak bourbon notes. Complex, smooth and seamlessly integrated.

Reviewed from notes from CollaBREWtive Father's Day Brunch event @ Tiatro.

A: Pours a clear golden with a thin (1/4-inch) white head which fades to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Roasted coffee, dark cocoa, hint of boozy bourbon,

T: Complex blending of softly mellow, low acidity, coffee with some fruity citrus and toffee. Slight molasses, smokey oak, bourbon.

M: Semi-full body and medium carbonation. Rich, lusciously smoot,h roasted coffee finish.

O: A delight. Keep it coming! Winner.
