Napa Parabola, Firestone’s barrel-aged imperial stout aged in red wine barrels made Thrillist’s list of the best stouts you’ll taste this winter.
IPAs tend to hog a lot of the beer-loving spotlight, but for true believers, the holiest of grails are those containing stouts.
This Parabola variant was matured in retired red wine barrels from one of Napa Valley’s most prestigious cult wineries. The result is a singular beer that marries intense wine berry flavors of premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot with Parabola’s own signature notes of dark fruit, tobacco and chewy roasted malts—all resulting in an unforgettable sensory experience.
Enjoy it now, or cellar in a cool, dark place. Napa Parabola is 11.3% ABV.
