A: Clearish light to dark brown hue with awesome head and tons of lacing clinging to the glass. Only fault is that it looks a little thin bodied.

S: Grassy hops that remind me of Pliny's aroma faintly and a spicier malt backbone. Nice.

T: A beautiful blend. Hints of the oak mix with the aggressive piney hops and spiky bready malt. Citrus bitterness at the back of the palate. Awesome. Very stone aggressive.

M: Smooth, great carbonation and a hearty feel. Alcohol well hidden.

D: Great beer thats pretty easy to drink through quickly and wish you had more. Nice offering from Stone.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. One-time release from Nov 10. Was a dark reddish amber color with lots of carb streams. It had a finger of foamy head that settled into a thin foam cap. Good sliding lace with some sticking.

The aroma was pine resin, citric hops and caramel malt. Very hoppy - yum! Also getting some oak. The taste is good hop bitter with a good dose of malt to keep it from running away to too bitter. Very resiny taste with the oak and alcohol making small appearances. Mouthfeel was full but had too much carbonation for me.

Overall, a worthy tribute to a great beer. Here's to 13 great years and many more. Highly recommend you get this limited release. Avail here in TX. Rotation - I really enjoyed it but my tongue was shredded by the end so I'd prefer a 12oz or to share it. Might grab another before it disappears. [O;Y]

Poured from the tap into a pint glass

The color is a dark orange/amber with a finger of foamy white head and some nice laving left on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with some piney hops and some grassy flavor that is a little like a Douglas fur tree. Citrus fruits are there as well with some sweetness there as well from the malts.

The feel of this beer is smooth and goes down easy. There is a nice medium body to it and seems to lighten in the middle before some bitterness tighten things up. This is pretty drinkable even after I was a little worried it would be a challenge after the first sip things just fell in line.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a large snifter.

A: Pours a dark hazy brown with a 1.5finger off white head. Head settles to a thin film with plenty amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of dark fruits, oak, some vanilla and earthy pine.

T: Close to the nose. Peculiar blend of earthy pine/resin, oak, vanilla and dark fruits.

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation.

O: Interesting flavor. I don't get one over the others. Not bad but almost has that suicide flavor/feel to it. Not quite there, but still really good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Gentle pour yields 1/4 finger of tan head with good retention. Clear burgundy liquid. Nice

S: Nice juicy crisp hops and tropical fruit. Slight toffee, subdued but pronounced Man Candy.

T: Burnt roast, fish oil, all Bastard, cacophonous. Not as dominant as I remember Bastards being, semi-subdued in fact. Delicious and balanced. Great guava and papaya, sweet as well. Where's the alcohol?

M: Gentle, balanced, mellow but bitter. No heat.

D: Very nice. I want another and will buy again. This blend of the three is better than any of them alone. One of the best I've had from Stone.
