4.5/5 rDev +7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: poured into a sinfter to a sinister looking deep red with a finger and a half of off white head that retains well
S: smells of pine and citrus hops with a bit of caramel and slight spice and fruity alcohol
T: softer than the smell let on. more oaky and woody with some slightly toasted malt and caramel with some earthy and piney hops. a bit of grapefruit comes in as well but it's very soft and refined. a nice sweetness to it and some very refined hop flavor. swallow is a huge wave of oily hop goodness that lingers for some time and slowly fades to show some residual sweetness
M: medium to full that is fairly smooth with adequate carbonation. kinda drying but also kinda juicy
O: this is a great version of an old favorite. It has great flavors and complexity, a killer nose, and it drinks very smooth. Another hit from Stone and I'm glad it came back around.

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.
