22 oz bottle purchased in Las Vegas from the 2011 release. This one is poured into my CCB snifter.
Appearance: Pours thick with a nice deep tan head about one finger thick. Leaves nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: Cocoa, roast, coffee, spice and dried dark fruit (black cherries).
Taste: Semisweet bakers chocolate, roast with a bit of char, subtle dark fruits. This one is nice and complex. No American hops flavors, but a general bitterness on the back end from the generous hopping.
Mouthfeel: Thick and almost syrupy with a huge body. Almost too many residuals here. The carbonation is low and soft, great for the style.
Overall: A very tasty IRS, a little on the sweet side for me. I really wish we could get Stone in Utah.
Serving type: bottle
