A- Dark amber color but not a lot of head. Head actually appears when you swirl it. But once you do it has some nice lacing. But if you don't swirl it then there is not much happening.
S- Hops and caramel with a hint of sweet vanilla.
T- Light hops but strong on the caramel. Chocolate notes, Sweet with a little bitter on the end.
M- Thin and smooth with almost not carbonation feel. Kind of has the texture of a flat soda.
O- Personally I think this was a great beer. Disappeared really quick. Wish I had another one.

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.
