Color: Deep brown with some ruby tinges, probably 29 on SRM scale.
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.

One time only. Blend of multiple barrel aged beers.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
