I wanted to like this beer more. I really did. All the talk about Stone Brewing and how good everything is...

My issue... hops and bitterness.

I like Stouts because of their typical lack of hops and bitterness. This brew is certainly Stone Brewing. Stone loves their hops and bitterness and they managed to get some into their Imperial Stout as well.

I did not care for the smell and the taste put me off as it is mildly hoppy and bitter. Midly for beers on average, very hoppy and bitter for a stout.

If you like other Stone Brewing brews then you should like this one as well.
