Clear copper-amber pour with a touch of crimson. Two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Complex malty, floral nose with hints of sticky pine resin, burnt sugar, apricot, grapefruit, yeasty bread, and subtle cinnamon and coriander. Taste follows suit and really opened up as it warmed with lots of bitter pine, brown sugar, booze, caramel, toffee, orange peel, grapefruit, grass, dark fruit, coriander, and just a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly syrupy and oily with a great tangy bitter hoppiness with subtle warming on the finish. Another outstanding offering from 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.
