Firestone Walker Limited Release XX Twentieth Anniversary Ale 2016 Vintage

This selection, the 11th release in the brewery's anniversary ale lineup, is blended together from 250 oak barrels containing five different beers (Parabola, Stickee Monkee, Velvet Merkin, Bravo and Helldorado), with participation from 17 local winemakers in addition to the brewing team during the blending process. The result is a unique, complex and one-of-a-kind limited release, with loads of boozy red berries, fruit cake spice, brown sugar, caramel and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth and full, with a lingering warmth and subtle wood-grain tannins. It's delicious now, but this should age well through 2020. Lauren Buzzeo
