Update: new tasting 0n 4/21/09 --> actually in great condition right now. good moment to drink. oxidation probably can fill out a bit more too before starting to go downhill, so dont worry yet about this beauty

A- poured a dark dark brown, with a fluffy tan head on top, the head slowly faded over a couple minutes, but still left pretty good lacing on top as well

S- massive delicious maltiness, good floral hops dark fruits?

T- heavy maltiness on the first sip, turns into a nice bitterness that isnt that sharp, but still strong in the hops, really smooth finish which is surprizing, pretty damn delicious

M- pretty haevy body, medium carbonation, flows over the tongue well, fades pretty quickly

D- more!!!!

One of my all-time favorites, and really the perfect execution of this style.

A - Black with good brown depth that carries through the rich head. It laces like a sexy black boot sticking to the sides.

S - It gets on you really quick with a pine aroma and the smell of roasted malt goodness. I love that the hops leave a small citrus aroma in the nose.

T - The showstopper. Prettymuch delivers the same toasted goodness, arromatic juniper flavor, and citrus, but with very subtle cream hints.

M - It holds up well. It is a great balance between half and half and whole. It walks a tightrope well.

O - Can't say enough. Get this one if you (still) haven't had it.

A: Dark dark yummy brown. Huge monster head w/ tons of little bubbles that stay and stay then line the glass; Mmmmm!

S: Hoppy, woodsy, slight coffee, little chocolate, and Hoppy.

T: Follows right along from the smell(s). Hopalicious, chocolate and coffee under tones and kinda grassy. There is also a sweet taste, not quite sure, maybe raisins.

M: Smooth. Creamy smooth. Coats the tongue completely and evenly and the flavor(s) linger long after you swallow.

D: I could drink this every day if possible. I am really pleased; another ringer by Stone.
