  • First off, I was able to get a bunch of this beer over the last two years, and I’m glad. It’s excellent. Second, great beer with a cigar (having a Rocky Patel Decade with it). Dark brown with lightening edges. Smell is straight up barrel with brown sugar and molasses notes underneath. Taste is sweet dark sugar and bourbon, bourbon, bourbon. More bourbon, please. Feel is big bold bodied and boozy. Did I say I need more bourbon? Definitely can tell this is a combination of a quad, a stout, and a Barleywine with... what was it? Oh yeah, BOURBON. I love Firestone Walker’s barrel aged program.
