FW Walker 14:
AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
S – Nose has lots of dark fruit, vanilla, figs, red wine, chestnut and birch and maybe even some oak. Slight cardboard
T – Yep, cardboard and strange off flavors but overall, very sweet, still pretty boozy and prunes, grapes and blackberries. Lots of roasted charcoal, licorice chocolate
M – Heavy, slick and tannic
O – This is a solid beer from drinking this along side 17, there’s no comparison.
AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
S – Great depth! lots of cherry, fig, blackberry, blueberry and other fruits. Bourbon vanilla and rum with a touch of cognac. Sweet nose.
T – Taste is nice. Oranges and honey with a lot of dark fruits. Very tannic and full of great maltiness but a slight oxidized finish.
M – Creamy mouthfeel, sweet and vinous finish
O – I enjoyed this one a lot. Should have opened it sooner.
AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
S – Big nose. like licorice and kale, sweet milk and more dark fruits.
T – Sweet and boozy finish. I get some medicine in this one but the meld of this is really nice. Blended perfectly, tequila, bourbon and rum with their accompanying sweet fruits and earthy tastes. Chocolate and molasses.
M – Creamy, velvety mouthfeel
O – This is great and is my 2nd favorite of the FW anniversary beers. 17 is just worlds better than the others maybe due to age?
