COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Parabola has been a major component of past anniversary blends and is one of our most aggressive offerings. This beer features bold bourbon and tobacco aromas and a rich dark chocolate, charred oak flavor. Parabola is best enjoyed in moderation and is a perfect beer to pair with those chocolate dessert favs.
An extension of Quercus Alba —the Firestone Walker Barrel aged program. Russian Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels.

dorain (754) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2017
Aus der Flasche (Vintage 2017 - No.008) im 2017-12 getrunken. Dieses Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout ist so was von perfekt das ich nur Jubeln kann. Jede typischen Aromen in der Nase und Gaumen sind auf den Punkt hervoragend herausgearbeitet und miteinander total stimmig. So finden sich neben einer tollen Arabika Kaffeenote, eine leckeres hochprozentiges Kakaoaroma mit einer feinen Noten von frischen Waffeln, etwas Haselnüssen und sogar ein zarten Hauch von Blaubeeren. Ein sensationelles IStout.
