beerlyinfocus [oatmeal]

Firestone Walker | Velvet Merkin

Went to @rusticoballston the other day for dinner and was super excited to see this brew on their tap list. I've been wanting to try forever, and haven't been able to get my hands on. I have to say, it did not disappoint! I wouldn't mind a little more bourbon presence, but that's just me being super picky. This beer is a must try if you haven't had it before!

  •   biggamej21 Incredible for 8.5% ba beer 6h
  •   beerlyinfocus That's the first thing I noticed after I took this pic too! Cheers @ambudds 6h
  •   beerlyinfocus I agree... It's so damn drinkable! Although, for selfish reasons, I wouldn't mind an extra kick in the bourbon and something like 10.5% abv! @biggamej21 6h
  •   melamart Had this on tap in LA in February. Happy to see they have it at Rustico! 6h
  •   biggamej21 @beerlyinfocus no shame in wanting more abv. I was skeptical when this first came out because of the 8.5% for the price. Then forgot it was Firestone. Cheers 5h
  •   beerlyinfocus Not sure how long it will last.. Wouldn't be surprised if it's gone already! @melamart 5h
  •   joshcavery The bourbon flavor is much more present out of the bottle. I had it at Firestone Barrelworks last week and have always noticed that a lot of the toffee and bourbon notes are attenuated on draft 4h
  •   beerlyinfocus Nice to know... I'll have to try to get my hands on the bottle then! @joshcavery 4h
