Such an interesting beer. It has the hop profile of an IPA, but the malt profile of a porter or stout. Pine resin taste from the hops and a roasted taste from the malt. Also, a hint of chocolate or espresso as well. I would definitely have this beer again. Another great from Stone,

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark black with red hues and two-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted forever. Fantastic lacing.

S: Resin hops. Chocolate. Very nice, but somewhat mild.

T: Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Burnt notes, chocolate, coffee, hops. Very nice.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Somewhat thin.

O: This is a really interesting beer. Tastes like an IPA/stout.

looks like a porter on the foam and on the sides when you tilt the glass. not as thick-looking as a porter or stout but very dark and chocolate-y.
smells a bit hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so.
tastes a bit hoppy, but there actually tastes like some chocolate, and espresso....
overall, okay... after an underberg it tasted a lot better. straight 4's . . . . .
