Pours ruby-brown, with a decently thick off-white head. Aroma was surprisingly hoppy, syrupy sweet and also alcoholic.
Taste is remarkable. Assertively hoppy and spicy characteristics like an imperial IPA, but there's also this dark-fruity, wine-like complexity that reminds me of a strong belgian ale. It's kind of like a hop-head's version of a quad. Very spicy. Pretty damn malty, sweet (brown sugar) and alcoholic, yet surprisingly easy to drink, probably because it's so delicious. Mouthfeel is excellent, smooth with coating of the tongue. Definite lacing on the way down. This really is an awesome beer, one of the finest from Stone Brewing.

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.
