This is a Great barrel aged Stout no doubt, but with that said, I drank this side by side with the parabola from Firestone and it fell a little short. It felt a bit less smooth and less complexed and refined, but hey thats like complaining about BMW because Mercedes Benz is better. This is a Top Ten Stout/Porter!
