Poured into brandy-style glass. Head dissipates quickly. Brilliant clarity with fire orange hue. Fruity nose with some biscuit. Difficulty picking up the vanilla and oak subtleties that describe this beer. Estery up front with clean finish. Decent beer. Could drink a few back to back.

I think this is a solid beer... but perhaps not as interesting as other DBA's. The Firestone DBA is a bit of a plain jane but solid nonetheless. In being critical... it lacks any strong characteristics... but its very drinkable... safe... and a good quality ale.

I tasted it along side of the Firestone Union Jack IPA... and preferred the DBA ( I am not a big fan of IPA's).
