3.83/5 rDev -9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
A: Very dark, close to black, with some ruby red shining through. Nice big light brown head with good lacing. Silkscreen and flavor text is a very nice addition.
S: A sweet malt profile which is followed by a slightly-bigger hop profile. Brown sugar, caramel, with some toast. Resiny hops and orange peel. A very faint chocolate
T : First comes very quick, bitter roasted grain. Getting a nice dose of grapefruit/ orange citrus which transitions into a slightly sweet brown sugar. Roasted malt and a bit of chocolate in the aftertaste. Overall taste is dominated by hops. The individual aspects of malt and hops are good but do not seem to combine and transition well. Seems a bit mismatched and confused.
M: Medium-heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes wet.
O: Overall tasty, but the individual flavors don't seem to match well for me. Probably won't try this one again. Also a bit pricey compared to Stone's other offerings.
Serving type: bottle
