4.03/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Had on-tap at WOB poured into a snifter
A-A deep chestnut with hints of orange, medium creamy head that dissipated rather quickly (due to the high abv i would assume) however leaves excellent lacing
S-Hops, citrus and brown sugar, hints of caramel and alcohol
T-The taste is like the smell but much much more, the alcohol and citrus take a lot more of the flavor here than in the nose, there is still an extreme hop presence that drew me to the beer in the first place
M-Medium body with decent carbonation the hop and alcohol sting and bubble is one of my favorites out there
D-Overall another great brew from stone, however I didn't enjoy this one as much as their Arrogant or Oaked Arrogant but that's not an important point. What is important is the fact that this is a great beer
Serving type: on-tap

4.2/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
poured 22oz bottle into chalice. Dated 9/16/13
A - Dark amber with 1 finger eggshell head. Fair retention and no lacing.
S - Earthy hops, brown sugar, toffee, burnt caramel, and dark fruit. Scent is reminiscent of a barelywine.
T - Even at 6 months the hops are still very present. Earthy with citrus notes, they give off a bitterness. The malts come in with many different flavors of brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, and a little dark fruit. The finish has a nice bitterness to it.
M - Medium body with decent carbonation. Quite smooth with a barleywine like feel.
O - Big and bold this one can be drank fresh with huge hop notes or aged to make it more mellow and sweet.
