poured from a bomber into a chalice.

A: half a finger of mocha head. motor oil black. good lacing. seems to be well carbonated.

S: dark fruit, plums, currants, raisins. bitter dark chocolate. hint of vanilla. the yeasts come out when it warms. complex and unwieldy.

T: ROASTY. dark chocolate. smokey. creamy, but the roasted character cuts the stickiness. coffee. alcohol is impeccably concealed. i can feel the HEAT from the ethanol when it goes down.

M: bold malts, medium bodied, well carbonated, viscous.

O: BOLD. wouldn't expect anything less from stone. very enjoyable. would probably mellow pleasantly with aging.
