4.1/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a dark deep brownish black, with a creamy tan-brown head leaving lacing through the finish. Aroma is a strong hoppy presence, with some strong roasted malty deliciousness in the background. Mainly strong piney/citrusy resin hop flavors. Taste is virtual insanity (thanks for that one, Jamiraquoi). I can't describe the complexity in this beer. Strong citrus hops dominate the palate with grapefruit and orange. Earthy bold coffee flavors from the dark roasted malts with a definite alcohol flavor drying out the back of my tongue. Mouthfeel is not-too-thick, but it does have a nice viscocity. Oily and smooth. Very easy drinking for over 8%, but be careful. I have only had 1 of these so far tonight, and it is getting very difficult for me to type this review...

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!
