Spring 2010 Limited Release 22 oz
Pours pitch black with a quickly dissipating dark brown head. Looks majestic. Nose contains burned coffee and chocolate malts, precisely what I expect in a RIS. There is a slight bitter hop flavor in the beer, but it is no match for the roasted chocolaty and coffee malt flavors that dominate. Rich and chewy texture with fairly low carbonation. Not overly sweet, this beer has the perfect types of malt for this style. Definite alcohol presence, especially as the beer warms.
Incredible beer! My consumption is only limited by the high alcohol content and local unavailability; otherwise I could drink this amazing beer all night. Stone is easily one of my favorite breweries, further confirmed by this amazing beer.
