4 dec 2013, bottle. Black. Nose is dry oatmeal stout. Med, creamy body and mildly fizzy. Tastes so much better than it smells. Wow. Vanilla, bourbon, oatmeal flakes, VERY sweet, candy corn maybe. Wow. Couldn't drink lots of it because it's so sweet but it is very nice.

Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is light bourbon, vanilla, oak, oats. Taste is smooth, creamy, oats, bourbon, vanilla, and oak. I must say I was bummed I knocked over my glass as I was drinking this. Little chocolate/cocoa flavor in the finish. Great lacing.

Tasted at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a coffee black color with a thick creamy head. The aroma was of bourbon, roasted coffee, raw oaks, big burnt malt, caramel and cocoa powder. The taste was silky smooth, complex toffee and roasted malts with bourbon. Very nice.

Pours a rich burnt umber with two fingers of khaki foam that settles nicely. the nose has a nice combination of soft bourbon, malted chocolate and subtle oatmeal undertones... kind of like a cardboard tube of quaker oats. The palate follows the nose with nice balance and a smooth silky body... I do find it slightly thin on the finish but overall a tasty sipper !

I must be missing something or we just had a really tragic bottle because it smelled like cheap whiskey with some weird muddy character and didnít taste any better. Would love to try it again because Firestone Walker is one of my favorites.
