From the bomber to a pint glass. Pours a really nice deep dark red with a very nice big frothy white head. Looks amazing. The head starts to slowly retreat but looks as though it's going to stick around for the majority of the drink. Leaves nice lacing on the glass. The smell right away is hoppy. Some pine, a hint of citrus and some fruits (mainly some cherry). There are some malt aromas, mainly in the background there is some caramel. As far as taste goes it's pretty comparable to the smell. At first I got a lot of malt followed by a nice bitter taste from the hops. Almost a lingering sweetness in there. Finishes with a nice hop bite, kind of piney in a way. Mouthfeel is a bit above average, by no means thin. I slightly high ABV, but a couple of these would be no problem. Very tasty and the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Overall I wish I would have grabbed another one or two, an interesting blend of some solid Stone brews. Definitely wasn't let down.

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.
