Pours a deep ruby red that just looks beautiful. It is topped with a thick beige head that does not disappear and laces the glass all over. This is what everyone wants in the look of their beer.
Sweet fruitiness(peach and orange with some tropical pineapple and tangerine type aromas) pours out everywhere from the snifter. I was wondering how prominent the different bastards would be and the oak is easily identifiable. Caramel malt and some piney hop are there as well. This might sound weird but I get a little pumpkin towards the end of the bottle when it warms up. I dig.
Oh yeah….bitter hoppiness and the great hop flavor takes hold at first leading into a huge caramal malt sweetness pop in the middle and end. A little butterscotch and oaky vanilla is there as well. The only bad thing about the taste is that ridiculously amazing fruity nose doesn't totally translate.
Drys out the mouth. Medium bodied. Active carbonation but it is not too much. When you get to the end of the bomber and swirled it around a bit and killed some carb it gets so smooth.
Ok. WOW is all I can say. I didn't know the whole story behind this beer when I bought it. I enjoy Stone and knew it was limited so I grabbed it. It is worth every cent you spend on it. Beers like this make me realize how awesome craft beer is. I love it.

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.
