Bottle pours a dark amber body with a medium sized beige head. Attractive patchy lacing.
Aroma is malty toffee and caramel with aromatic pine resin.
Medium body and carbonation.
Taste has toffee and caramel malty dominance, complimented by a very nice smoky peat element. Pine hops add a nice counterpart to the malts and there is a hint of dark fruits underneath. Alcohol is concealed very well.
One of the better Scotch ales I've sampled recently, especially from this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to mntlover for this fine bottle.

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.
