3.5/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a perfect pint. Enjoy by Jan 31, 2013, so I just barely made it.

3.5 A: Clear copper amber color. Two and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is decent and a diffuse lattice of foamy lacing is left.

3.5 S: Surprisingly hoppy, this takes on a lot of the double bastard. Hop aroma is a mix of floral foremost with pine, herbal and earthy following behind. Caramel and toasty maltiness with notes of toffee and dark fruits - raisin and dates.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Piney and floral hop flavor. Caramel, toffee, toastiness, and neutral malt maltiness. Dark fruits.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and quite smooth.

3.5 D: This is good, but nearly every thing Stone offers has been eclipsed hundreds of times since craft beer started going more mainstream and showing up everywhere.

3.81/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.

Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.

Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.

Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.

Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
