Maroon to copper to mahogany and shades of purple this is an exceptionally striking color. The head built quickly in a rush of bubbles to a crescendo of thick foam and exceptional lacing.

So many things going on in aroma but slightly weak. Prune, sweet dates, raisin and dried fruit meld with a molasses or sorghum scent. Quite diverse, and very well presented.

Strong raisin flavors hit but are vanquished with an alcohol brashness. Some prune comes towards the end but it too loses out to a harsh tinny metallic taste and feel. I do get a hop flavor and some sweetness as I delve further in. Maybe some pine and a hint of malt. It's getting better, the more I drink but overall it seems Stone has lost me again. So many of their ales finish with tinny alcohol, for me, and it disappoints me every time.
