Stone Brewing - Matt's Burning Rosids [Imperial Cherrywood-Smoked Saison] (22oz ---> Pint Glass : 10.5 ABV)

"Honoring His Memory - Matt Courthright" as it reads across the neck of the bottle, intrigued me as to who he was - "Imperial Cherrywood-Smoked Saison" as it read beneath the beer's graphics, intrigues me as to what's inside!! It poured a very full gold hue with great clarity beneath an active 2.5 inch light blonde head that dissipated somewhat slowly, leaving minimal lacing... Immediately on the nose is some bready smokiness, accompanied by just a touch of sweetness - but overall an extremely smokey aroma... First taste on the palate is the cherry sweetness, but showing up almost immediately after is the smokey flavor again... Midway the spice really presents itself with lots of cracked pepper and a touch of cinnamon hiding in there also... The finish is, you guessed it, smokey and smooth, but the spiciness almost acts as a buttering element to balance this beer out... It also leaves a bit of funk lingering at the end, as well as a slight alcohol warmth... Mouthfeel on this beer is almost creamy from the well balanced combination of carbonation as well as full flavors, which made for a good vessel to carry this style and flavors... Overall the flavors were full and balanced, and it was a well crafted beer, but I just didn't dig the combination of the flavors as I thought I would... It was similar to a beautifully cooked plate of food in which none of the ingredients complimented one another when combined together... Though not my favorite beer ever, it's a classy tip of the hat to (what seems to have been) an amazing brewer and, more importantly, individual... Another good brew - Cheers!!
