On tap at Down Town Johnny Browns.
Pours a dark black but not viscous like a stout. Nice light tan head that stayed the entire time. Lacing all the way down the glass.
Smells of dark malts but alot of the hop smells are absent. You can smell it a little but not much.
Tastes smooth. Almost like a cask ale. The bitter malts combined with the hops taste very good. With the fading of the hops it is actually still quite a good beer.
Mouthfeel is really smooth and low carbonation. Almost none but it goes well with the beer and tastes almost like it is on cask. Tasty.
Overall a very tasty brew that I would try again for sure just to see how it is aging.
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.
