Firestone Walker 2011 Abacus

Posted by Mark
Abacus is a barrel aged Barley Wine. Four barrels in total were selected for the blend. The base of this year's offering was aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for 3 years! The resulting beer is strong yet extremely elegant and smooth. Big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combined with soft chocolate malty undertones. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This is definitely a sipping beer.
