Ordered this little number from Shipmates in Cerritos. This beer is a rare find and a real jewel in the Stone Brewing "cannon". Has a chocolate/caramel smell. Sweetness up front, bitterness at the finish. Head forms into pristine rings inside the tulip glass through progression. This is definitely my favourite offering from Stone.
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%

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.
