Style et résumé: American strong ale. Dogbrick (13147) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016.
Portrait: Une robe brune foncée presque noire. Un nez de chocolat, de café sur une tonne d’alcool. Une bouche sèche aux saveurs de chocolat et café. C’est interminable, les saveurs restent collées au palais. L’amertume est intense.
Sample at Kurtkeller 023: Firestone Walker-tastic 01 on 06/18/2016. This beer pours brown-black with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Oaky aroma with malt, coffee and chocolate notes. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, charred malt, coffee, chocolate and bourbon. The finish is oaky and boozy with a bourbon and chocolate malt aftertaste. Good beer all around. Geiserich (4532) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 29, 2016

Pours black with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Good stuff. A tad unidimensionnal and not really cohesive. tom10101 (6156) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (22 oz) shared at tasting. Dark mahogany-brown with a small beige head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing and little legs on the glass. Flavors of bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark fruits, red fruits, coconut, alcohol, toasted malts, chocolatey notes, mineral notes, nuts and the list goes on... it’s super rich and borderline too much. Taste is sweet but not overly so. It’s quite boozy and hot as well, despite being a few years old already. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily and nice mouth coathing liquorous mouthfeel. Warming and hot finish. It’s another overly boozy strong beer from Firestone Walker and it feels a bit unbalanced to me (though I know they are doing tons of work to make it as balanced as possible for what it is). I can’t deny that it’s packing a ton of flavors and I find this to be interesting as a sipper in very small quantity but it’s a beer I would likely never enjoy drinking a full glass of. . mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours a dark brown with an offwhite head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of coconut, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet, boozy/spirity with some nice chocolate flavors. Body is full, carbonation moderate and it is not too boozy at all. A pretty good extreme dessert beer. Whatup14 (2027) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
