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

12oz bottle from Stone variety pack, poured into pint glass. Enjoy by 10/02/14.
Black body with reddish hints when held up against a light. Small tan colored head, well carbonated, and good lacing.
Faint sweetness on the nose.
Taste was very nice, sweet with only a very faint bitterness. Roasted malts come out at the end. (Similar pattern to Arrogant Bastard) Mouth was around medium.
I personally do not really understand Black Ales/IPA's, seems to me there are always much better options on either the IPA or stout side. This one seems to favor the stout side. Taste seem to improve as the ale warmed up toward room temperature. Overall, an enjoyable drink.
