Limited spring 2008 release.

This is the second beer I'm trying from Stone Brewing Co. and I am amazed! Stone must be one of the highest quality brewers in the U.S.

The beer pours a black color with a small beige head. The bottles from Stone are almost like art, so I will save one for sure.

Smells amazing of dark chocolate, roasted malts and some aroma hops. Really good smell!

The taste is dominated by dark chocolate, roasted malts with notes of anis almost absintish notes.

Amazing beer! I'm lucky to have three more bottles.
