Another bottle courtesy of every BA's favorite gutter slut, patronwizard. I gotta admit though, I owe him for this one. I wasn't too big on Stone after the few brews I tried from them. but this one completely redeemed Stone for me. He's still a big bag of douche, but he makes some solid recommendations. On with the review.
A. Brownish/dark red body with a thin white head that fades to the sides and leaves a little lacing the whole way through.
S. Smells of hops, citrus,piney, descent sweet malt, coffee and chocolate. smell was way more than I was expecting out of this.
T. like a hop kick to the jaw. I can't believe how well the hops has held up in this. A year later it's still banging fresh. Citrusy, slight piny taste. Malts pull through in a big was too with a coffee and chocolate taste. Is it good? Fucking right it is.
M. Mouthfeel is solid. slightly sticky, not too thin.
D. hell yeah it has drinkability. This has everything I like in a beer, booze, hops and chocolate.
Like I said, I have a new found faith in Stone that Stone 12 killed. I hope a year in the cellar calms the 12 down
