4.13/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance- Pours pitch black with two finger chunky tan head.
Smell- Very piney and a little fresh cut grass. Slightly boozey smell.
Taste- Maltier than I expected from Stone. But the hop bitterness is there. Roasted malt is a nice highlight of this beer. Not citrusy really, mostly pine hop flavors. Really glad that boozey scent didnt show up in the taste. Very nicely balanced.
Mouthfeel- Really smooth. Less carbonated than expected.
Drinkability- Perfect alc content for a bomber if you ask me. Low enough to drink the whole thing and not be tipsy, but high enough to give a nice buzz.
Overall- Nicely done from Stone on this one. I personally love how agressively hopped their beers can be, but I understand that not everyone enjoys that. This one is well balanced and hopheads and maltlovers alike will enjoy.

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.
