look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color with an almost 2 finger head. Very nice lacing.

S: Hops and malts are present but accentuated by coffee and bitter chocolate aromas.

T: Chocolate malt flavors at first, followed by some mild hops. Hides the alcohol well.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Light to moderate carbonation.

O: Extremely well balanced and about perfect for the style. I'm an IPA fan, but this is a great option for the winter months. I will definitely be buying more.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 12/07/12.

A: Pours a dark brown appearing black in the glass with a 1.5 finger off white head. Leaves a thick layer of lacing as the head dwindles to a thin covering with clumps around the edge. Some light is visible through the body.

S: Interesting blend of malts and hops. Has a sweet chocolate and carmel malt body with pine and citrus hop notes on top. Some dark fruits like raisin in there as well.

T: Malt forefront with a chocolate blend of dark fruits, hops quickly pick up in the after taste with a nice bitter taste. Can get the pine from the simcoe and citrus from the others. Almost a spiciness to it too. Nice roastiness.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Has a creamy velvety mouthfeel which is pleasant.

Overall better than I remember. Stone really blends a nice malty hop blend here and makes a benchmark for the rest of the style.
