All I can say is this is the beer of beers! Nothing like it! Such flavor and smell. Each time I try it it gets better and better. I can't wait to do a vertical of 10,11,and 12. Might be horizontal after that though.

Reviewed from notes taken last Sunday, 06/03/07.

A - Pours a dark caramel brown color that is slightly opaque. Rich tan colored head made of varying sized bubbles. Decent retention and nice sticky lacing.

S - Huge deep sweetness with caramel and toffee taking the stage. Definitive oakiness with slightly charred wood and deep vanilla notes.

T - Much as expected from the smell, but with even more wood presence. Bourbon, charred wood and vanilla combine beautifully. Deep caramel and toffee envelope the tongue. Slightly bitter wash in the finish.

M - Medium to full bodied, slightly syrupy. Carbonation is light, but pleasant.

D - Great complex array of flavors displayed here that all blend together nicely. By far the best beer I have had from Firestone.

Finnaly tracked down a case of this bad boy. Pours a very dark color, a dark copper thats almost black best describes it. Nice dark tan head that lasted well. The smell is very good with a hint of alcohol and roast. Im not sure I know enough about brews like this yet to pick out everything in it but this one was great. The taste is VERY complex with the roast and some other vanilla’ish flavors. The 12% ABV comes in just at the very end. Very drinkable for the ABV, and will only get smoother as it ages IMO.

Price: $10.00 Served In: Pint Glass
