Poured from a 750ml into a 12oz glass.
This monster brew has a deep earthy, umber maroon color with a full 3 finger that settles down to nice carbonation and retention that laces the glass as if sticky.
I get lots of caramel malts, alcohol, pine, oily hops, some darker fruits underneath, a slight earthiness and a slight smoky wood.
This yells smoothness from the initial sip. It has a medium body, nice carbonation retention, even as the beer warms. I get caramel and pineapple citrus right off the bat, alcohol warmth, hops, oily slick chewy piney alcohol middle and a nice warm ending with more of a caramel and malty sweetness and more balanced alcohol warmth. superbly balanced for such a potent brew. Was expecting more hops to this, but definatly not disappointed for a great take on a strong olde ale.
Well done Stone!
