Pours a deep brown/red color. Clear, but some sediment at the bottom. Off white average head that leaves incredible coating of the side of the glass. This is usually an indication of a very malty beer.
SMells incredible. Where is the 10%abv?. Smells bisquity, sweet, spice, even some mild chocolate malts. Yiest smell. Very mellow smell for a "double". But the smells are memorable.
The taste is a surprise from the smell. I smelled no hops. I taste heavy heavy heavy hops. Pine hops with all the oily hop bitterness of a dipa. But, this brew has intense sugars to balance!!! Almost syrupy sweetness. But the bitterness balances any over malt sweetness. Brilliant! I have spices from this brew coming out my nose!!!! Clearing my nostrals!!!! WOW! Ohhhh...ok...there is the alcohol! Almost sips like a barly wine.
Is this brew an DIPA???? Is this brew a barly wine??? Is this brew a Brown ale??? Is this brew a belgem????
WHat is it??? Holy beer world....it is all of these things! ALl blended by the Stone brew makers!
I will call it a kick ass beer!!!
