Firestone Walker Bravo Imperial Brown Ale - taster

2017 Release. This beer had an alcoholic smell. It also had an alcoholic taste. Various persons in the room (who are participating in the beer tasting) mention that it tastes like whiskey; I agree. It is, however, smooth. It's sweet. This one's good if you like certain types of hard liquor. 4:55PM PT

February 4, 2017 Release

We proudly present the 2017 Vintage of Bravo, our Imperial Brown Ale aged in retired American oak bourbon barrels. Although Bravo was the first strong ale brewed for our Anniversary Ale blending program over ten years ago, it has yet to see its own bottled release, until now. Balancing rich toasty and chocolate malt flavors with a gentle balance of noble hops, Bravo is brewed to showcase barrel flavors with massive bourbon barrel notes that morph as the beer warms in the glass.
