3.93/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A -- poured into a dogfish head chalice. This brew has a very dark/black appearance similar to a stout or a porter. Almost no head.
S-- smells like a Stone IPA and a malty porter. Strong hoppy smell at first w/ malt and caramel notes that follow
T-- I think a couple of other people have already mentioned it, but this brew is like an IPA & a porter had a baby! Very drinkable, absolutely cannot tell that it's 9% abv... Almost as good as their escondidan imperial black IPA.
M -- not too much carbonation, but didn't bother me. Had a nice coffee-type bitterness/bite
O -- I have never had a brew from that has been average. They are one of the best breweries in the U.S. This is another example of why... Unique hybrid that satisfies both your IPA & stout/porter cravings. Really solid brew.

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!
