This review applies to the 2004 vintage of Stone RIS. Picked up Saturday from Stone. Decanted from the growler into a snifter. Pours extremely dark with a small head that fizzles away quickly. Aromas of chocolate, alcohol, and plums. Smells more like an old ale than a RIS. Taste is chocolate, coffee, and a touch of alcohol. The taste in general is smoother and less sharp than younger Stone RISs. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and because of the age it has, this RIS is more drinkable than most. Overall, four years of age seemed to have done this brew some good.
Serving type: growler
