EDIT: Realized that this is my 100th beer review. Only fitting since Stone got me into amazing beer. Cheers, Stone!*
A- Huge ruby/blood red body with a nice caked foamy off white head that leaves an annoying amount of lacing on my Celebrator glass...grrr! ;)
S-Has a nice bold hop bitterness along with dark fruits, red licorice, and anise. Pretty faint for a three bastard cuvee, but whatever.
T-YEAH! Nice and malty, just enough hop to bounce it back to drinkability and has a long lasting finish. Lots of cherry, plum and even rum raisin! YEAH!
M-Thick and chewy, but is slightly cloying.
D-It could be a lot more drinkable in my mind....this is a strong beer with lots of moving parts, but for gods sake, don't have it finish with more maltiness than hoppiness!
