Pours a dark ruby brown with not much head. Lacign remains on top. Moderate bubble action.
Smells yeasty, citrus and floral hops. Rosewater. Fruitiness, like pineapple.
Whoa!! Taste is a face-meltingly awesome blend of piney pitch, delicate yet formidable malty sweetness, caramel, smoke, spice, lots of fruit flavors, alcohol present yet enjoyable. Finishes with lasting oily bitterness.
Mouthfeel is spot-on with the right amount of alcohol, CO2, and consistency. Perfect.
Overall not a session due to abv, but holy crap, this is a magnificent and drinkable brew. Absolutely stunning in it's depth of flavor and perfect mouthfeel. Tremendous. Absolutely tremendous, even for Stone.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
Serving type: on-tap
