look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

'07 vintage poured at 45F into a snifter

Beautifull rich amber color. Thick tan head that settles to a nice cover.

Mixture of sweet malts and bitter floral hops. Aromas of caramel, vanilla and ripe fruits as well.

More of the same, but better. Caramel malts perfectly blended with powerfull hops. Sweet fruits and warming alcohols.

Well carbonated full body. Thick and creamy feel.

Very complex yet well balanced. Delicate yet delicious. Another fine brew from stone and possible the best vintage yet.
