Bottled. Pours deep brown with an average beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, oak, bourbon, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carb. A great strong ale. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2014
(Bottle) Pours deep reddish brown to black with a pale brown head. The aroma IS malt and barrel heaven - perfect roast, deep but clean caramel, soft but complex barrel notes, soft underlying alcohol and soft resinous/floral hops. Undertones of port wine, liquorice, dark/grainy bread and creamy dark toffee. The flavour is near medium sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with tones of fat malt, fat (but balanced) oak and a perfect hop profile. The mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, velvety and fiery numbing with a soft ´carbonation. Dark fudge, liquorice, soft oach, fat malt and smooth hops on the finish. Full bodied.

This was the first anniversary ale I tasted from Firestone, it was a gift to a friend on his wedding day that we shared between 3 friends. I have had it again since then and every time I drink it I remember how amazing it was. italarican (1549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Massive bourbon and milk chocolaty flavor. There’s a slight acidity that works. Thin body that somehow holds the robust flavor profile well. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
A very complex beer that is great wish I had more. Dark black in color with a tan head. Aroma and flavor are very much alike tons of wood,vanilla,bourbon and dark fruits. Zymurgeist2 (2296) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrua for FW’s SF Beer Week event there. This beer is so rich, deep and complex. Full deep, dark fruit aroma and taste. Deep clear sherry like color. AirForceHops (7334) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 15, 2014
22 oz Bottle shared by Adam. Dark brown with lasting white head. Aroma is really nice. Traces of bourbon vanilla, oak barrel, dark fruits and hints of molasses. Flavor is very nice. The complexity changes after every few sip. The stout influence is really forward. Caramelized malts, oak, some toffee light vanilla, with the body nearly all stout aspects. Texture is oily and smooth. I enjoy the master blending of this brew. I used to feel like blended beers where kind of pointless but after a few FSW blends I changed my mind. This is just tasty.
