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.

Enjoy by January 13.
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.
Pine, resin, and grapefruit are supported by sweet burnt sugar and toasted bread in the aroma. Pine dominates. Dark fruit notes of prunes and fig add intrigue.
Flavor begins with burnt breadcrust and deeply caramelized sugar, with underlying grapefruit pith, herbal tea, and pine, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Oak and resin linger in the aftertaste.
Body is a little full, with low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
Interesting combination of flavors, thought the burnt character dominates and is slightly unpleasant.
