3.89/5  rDev -7.8%

A - poured to a frozen tumbler- large head that I had to wait on to get the entire glass poured. Dark chocolate color w/ decent clarity

S - light hoppy aroma

T - a decent beer but not one of Stone's best efforts. Seemed like a cross between a golden ale and a poorly made stout

M - good carbonation

O - worth the try but not going to fit on my list of regulars

A- coffee black with a nice 2 finger tan foamy head. Gorgeous lacing and head sticks around.

S- resin hops with a burnt malt presence on the back end. Very nicely done Stone!

F- nice hop presence that tastes like pine resin and burnt malt. Very tasty.

M- chewy and creamy. goes down with ease.

O- great beer from stone. All i can say.

Black body, tan head. Rings of foam get left along the glass every time you take a sip.

You wouldn't expect a beer that pours black as night to smell as hoppy as it does. Notes of coffee, chocolate, slight citrus, hops and malt. There's a lot going on.

Flavor is odd, it has the bitterness of an IPA, but shares its body with the flavor profile of a stout. Bitter finish, slightly spicy at times. Stone has an interesting way of attacking your palate with overwhelming flavors... This beer is really no different.

Can't quite understand it, but it's certainly different, and that makes it worth trying,
