Had on tap at a Stone launch party at uptown grille, and thankfully I did.
A - Great head that was slightly brown. Retained very well and lacing was superb also. Color was closer to black with a brown tint.
S - What a perfect smell. Chinook hops I think give this one a distinctive smell.
T - Excellent hops balanced perfectly with a strong malt backbone. This was a real treat that got better as it went on.
M - Was a little heavy at first but really lightened up to give an excellent feel. Carbonation was perfect.
D - Could definately do a couple more of these. I would definately order this one again as it is one of my favorite beers I have had redently.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours dark black with medium carbonation that creates a nice tan head as well as some decent lacing. Looks like what you would expect from a stout.
S: The smell is fantastic! Lots of earthy and fruity hops (grapefruit and citrus) as well as a hint of that dark (almost molasses) malt aroma.
T: This is where the beer shines... Very bitter but not so much as to deter you from drinking it. Earthy, floral, and fruity hops show through the roasted malt and peach flavor of the beer. Stone did an amazing job creating a unique style that blends together all the flavors so nicely. Very flavorful!
M: Mouthfeel is perfect. Medium to full body, creamy but very drinkable. The finish isn't dry and those flavors stick to your tastebuds for a while after you sip. Carbonation is spot on with the flavor.
O: Overall this is probably my favorite beer of the ones I've tried so far. Definitely one that you can try more than once and enjoy just as much, if not more, as the last time. Stone has made a beer that somehow has a strong and intense flavor that makes you wish you had another bottle when you're done!
