2017 release. Wow. In just two words: exceptional beer.

Look: Oil black, no light penetrates, but a beautiful rich thick mocha head.
Smell: Roasted dark malts, caramel, coffee, sticky toffee, vanilla, oak, dark chocolate notes.
Taste: The taste follows the smells perfectly, finishes with a nice warm boozy taste. Perfect for a rainy PNW day.
Feel: Velvety smooth, thick and rich, low carbonation
Overall: Close to perfection; could not find a flaw, however looking for something to push it past Firestone 17. It was damn close, but this one was just shy of something. Can't name that something, but I was looking for something else. Still absolutely incredible.
