Every year the month of December brings the week-plus long celebration of my birthday, gifts for every occasion, and Firestone Walker Brewery's annual blend.
We like to continue to age these blends like fine wine. So tune back in for the cage match between Firestone 14, 15 and 16. But for now - enjoy XVI with us!
These blends are best tasted at room temp so the complexities rise to the top. This sweet sixteen is indeed sweet and a bit oat-y. It is as smooth as a fine Bordeaux but tops out at about 40% stout for a lot of toasty, chocolate bottom notes.
It is plenty light so don't be intimidated to Grab one if you can - or call Jonny Sparks Lounge to reserve a glass. Cheers and happy holiday toasting season!
