Heavy pour from a 12 oz bottle. One finger head that run away almost as soon as the pour is over.
Thin rings of lacing hang around a bit longer than expected.
Gorgeous Ruby Mahogany tint reminiscent of a rich Scotch.
Dry raisins and toffee Caramel in the nose and palate. Just a touch of oak with delicate vanilla in the back.
Subtile carbonation that works quite well with a light body actually.
8.8% ABV is untraceable with a nice malty sweetness. Impressive complexity of flavors that work well and balance each other, to make this Scotch Ale a very drinkable and quite successful collaboration.

12 oz. bottle pouted into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid pours light brown and amber with light red highlights. A little lighter when held up to the light. Pretty good clarity, some slight particles floating around. Off white/cream collared head, not much in the way of lacing and it doesn't stick around too long.
Smells really good. Lots of caramelized malts, a reasonable dose of vanilla, brown sugar/butter blend, followed by an appropriate amount of spicy hops.
Taste might be a touch better than the smell. Very well malted, but not in the slightest bit a sugar bomb. Plenty of caramelized roasted malts, a nice vanilla/brown sugar blend. There's also the slightest bit of an earthy smoke flavor. Mostly herbal hops with the slightest touch of over ripe, sweet tangerine citrus.
Mouthfeel is great. Full bodied and a good carbonation level. Slightly buttery with a nice dry, spicy finish. Really drinkable, goes pretty quick, especially for a scotch ale. Nice job boys, another awesome Stone Collab.
