This is the Snobby Beer review of Parabola (2012) from Firestone Walker Brewing Company. This imperial stout is aged in a variety of oak barrels for 12 months, and is released annually. Special guest Natalie Phillips in this review!
From the Firestone Walker website:
“Parabola has been a major component of past anniversary blends and is one of our most aggressive offerings. This beer features bold bourbon and tobacco aromas and a rich dark chocolate, charred oak flavor. Parabola is best enjoyed in moderation and is a perfect beer to pair with those chocolate dessert favs.
REMEMBER: Watch for bottled on dates located on the necks or bottom left corner of the label for each of our beers. Our Proprietor’s Reserve Series, Barrel-aged beers are built to aged carefully. Storing in a dark place at or below 40F will allow them to best age for several years.”
