Poured from tap and had a nice brown head over the clear dark brown brew. Frothy head lasts and lasts, with ample sticky lace. Aroma is pungeant piney green hops. Taste is bit lacking in the chewy malts one might expect for such a dark color, but hops character and bitterness is excellent. It did have nice chocolate taste to it with that hoppy kick. Mouthfeel is extra smooth, and drinkability is great as well. Yet another anniversary brew from Stone that is worthy of the milestone.

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 . . . . .

A: Pours a dense nearly black opaque with a fair amount of bubbly light tan head. Retains pretty well and leaves all kinds of lacing.

S: Sweet with notes of raisin or dried apricot.

T: Tons of flavor, starting sweet with the dried fruit notes leading into a huge hoppy finish.

M: Full bodied, medium carbonation.

D: So much flavor you don't want to drink too much or too fast.
