Picked up a bottle at Bottle Shop on Lower Greenville.
A: Dark black with a tinge of red around the edges when held to the light. Mocha brown head. Head retention was pretty amazing. More on that later.
S: chocolate malt, dark roasted malt, grapefruit, big grassy hops, citrusy hops, spicy hops, all kinds of hops. malt on malt on malt.
T: Thick mouthcoating waves of malt yet very dry. Malt flavors tempered by citrusy bitter hops all over the tongue. Very hoppy, but not very spicy like the nose would lead you to believe.
This is one of the cleanest tasting beers I've ever tried. I let it open up for a while and the initial onslaught of hops and rich malt was blinding, once this breathed a little bit, it was greatly subdued and balanced.
M: Smooth, but with a good deal of snappy carbonation.
O: I let this beer rest for about three hours and when i came back, there was still head floating on top of it, and lacing all the way down the glass.
Another great offering from Stone. This might become a standard in my collection.
