Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - JAN 12, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Wow, thanks to a friend for opening this sucker up the other night. This is aging quite nicely and is a phenomenal beer at the moment. Pours black with a slight reddish hue and a solid offwhite/tan foam when poured vigorously. The nose is full of dark fruits, roast, chocolate. Just an amazing aroma on this one. The taste backs up all of the aroma and delivers even more. Big dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavors, firm vanilla notes, some definite plum and fig action as well. The alcohol has mellowed incredibly, and this sucker drinks dangerously easy. This is the kind of beer you are slightly sad drinking because you know there is no more to be had. Simply amazing. If you have a few cellaring I recommend you try one now because this beer is damn near perfect. jenn_l13 (1) - USA - NOV 20, 2009 does not count
I was fortunate enought to taste this beer tonight, because my local Bevmo was doing a Firestone tasting. I have tries Eleven and thought it was fantastic and I think 13 is even better. I enjoyed this beer so much I bought a 6 bottle case. Also this year the anniversary beer is sold in a nice wooden box, hence the reason it comes with 6 bottles instead of 12.
