Erie Better Beer – Firestone Walker 12th Anniversary (8yrs. old)
Here is another installment from Mark Pyle and the boys at the Erie Better Beer Bureau. Check out their vintage review of Firestone Walker’s 12th Anniversary (8yrs. old), a blend of some of their other beers ~ 7 years of aging.
Aroma – Smells delicious, Bourbon forward, English toffee, dark fruit, very little oxidation
Taste – Very smooth, dark fruit, toffee notes, tastes like a stout and old ale mixed, blends nicely
Blind scores: 4.5, 4.5, 4.5 ABV 12%
Perfect carbonation, balance of the old ale & stout… Pleasure to drink!
