Awesome beer. Had it at a tasting.
Pours heavy dark brown with a good amount of head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Decent amount of carbonation as well.
Smell : Well very unlike a black ale, hugely filled with hops, floral and piney. A little bit of roasted malt, coffee, porter type of smell.
Taste: Here lies the magic. The bitterness is not at all felt but you know it is bitter, very bitter. Hops are huge. All sorts of taste, very complex, yet delightful. It has a lot of piney, spicy, citrusy, floral taste. A little amount of porter like taste and some grapefruit. Awesome.
Medium to full bodied beer. A good presence in the mouth. Mainly, a bit oily of course but good feel, nonetheless.
Sublime, it truly is. Stone, as usual, never disappoints. Not only that, it over delivers all the time. Excellent stuff there. Highly recommended for hop heads for winter drinking.
Serving type: bottle
