Vintage 2017. Piekny aromat czekolady, marcepana, wanilii, likieru, kakao. Wspaniala faktura. oleiste, gladkie, likier czekoladowy, nuty sherry, kakao, wanilia, akcenty beczkowe delikatne, w aromacie byly zdecydowanie silnijesze, alkohol w gardle mocno rozgrzewa i lekko piecze, jednak móglby byc lepiej ukryty. doctorbarn (6) - Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2017 does not count

This was a six month aged beer very good malrubius (2925) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Bottle from Brewtopia. Black with no head or lace. Boozy chocolate woody aroma. Very sweet boozy chocolate with some plum bittersweet coffee chocolate ashy finish. Almost no carbo slick oily. Mouthfeel ruins it. It’s almost still. Like drinking boozy dark chocolate syrup. What a waste of money. I’m gonna keep drinking it as long as I can and update my rating when I’m finished. .................................................. it was a pretty good sipper and I finished it, so it must be better than a 3. john44 (3111) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2017

375ml bottle shared with brother. Aroma: toffee, caramel, boozy bourbon even some whiskey aroma, really really subtle tobacco. App: black with monorail mocha frothy head leaving good lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, velvety, light body and big alcohol finish. Overall: first time I’ve had Parabola, I’ve had a few Firestone including Parabajava and this one is definitely something I’d like to have more in my beer cellar. I really enjoy the alcohol finish. Love the mouthfeel. Pretty good.
