First beer of the new year. And it's pitch black as midnight. Half finger of light tan head, quickly diminishes, but leaves patchy lacing and a frosty covering the whole way down.
I smell dark chocolate, lots of it. Burnt malty goodness. Interestingly enough, there are also bready, lighter malts in the smell. Either that, or it's a generous hop aroma playing tricks on my mind.
There's so much going on in the taste.... It's like a good burnt, roasty German beer that fell into a giant vat of American hops. Smooth, chocolatey goodness in the center, drying, drying hop bitterness on the finish. Warm alcohol. Resiny, very West Coast, very Stone. Delicious. I will gladly spend the rest of my night sipping and exploring the intricacies of this brew. Happy New Year, peeps.
