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

A- Pours a thick brown/red color that seems slightly cloudy. Looks the color of brown sugar. Pours a 2 finger head with slight lacing sticking to the glass.

S- Smells like any other Stone beer with their signature style. Not as strong of a hop aroma, but still present.

T- Wonderful. The brown sugar is definitely present on the back end. Leaves a sweet taste after each sip. A very good brown ale that is extra hoppy as advertised.

M- Moderate carbonation and the molasses/brown sugar notes cling to your palate.

O- Overall this is one of the better brown ales I've had. Goes down smooth and is pretty damn tasty. Definitely a unique beer and worth a try if you can find it!

Pours out nice a dark, It really does look great. Decent head. The smell hits you right away with the brown sugar and molasses with the hoppy stone scent. When you first taste it, it lives up to the inviting smell and does what it's try to do as a texas brown ale great.The mouthfeel is fine, not off the charts. I had this along with quite a few other beers and this one was my favorite.

A- Hazy reddish brown with a tall tan head that dissipates slowly to a moderate covering, leaving sheets of lacing behind.

N- Light floral and citrus notes with dusty chocolate malt and toasted grain underneath. Soft fruity esters from the yeast blend well with the floral hops.

T- Wow, this beer is just bursting with flavor. Dusty chocolate malt pervades the palate, while tons of soft, floral, citrusy, piney hop oils coat the mouth for a lasting hop presence. There's also a nice earthy hop character that matches perfectly with the malt bill. Moderate clean grassy bitterness dominates the subtle sweetness implied by the brown sugar and molasses. The yeast character in this beer is amazing. Subtle fruity esters compliment the malt and blend with the hops to create a singular unique flavor. The finish is long and dry, with grassy bitterness clinging to the tongue, floral/citrusy hops enveloping the palate, and chocolate/toasted malt lingering into the aftertaste.

M- Medium-bodied, sticky, moderate-to-high carbonation with fine bubbles, and a dry, long-lasting finish.

O- Really, one of the most enjoyable beers I've had in awhile. I've only seen this beer sold as singles, but they really need to come in six-packs. Stone, please add this to your regular lineup. It would be a shame to let a beer like this disappear after the collaboration version is gone.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a dark murky brown with a huge 3-4finger head. Pour might of been a bit aggressive. Excellent retention and lacing.

S: Smells of pine/resin, brown sugar, molasses and possibly other spices i can't identify.

T: Close to the nose. Hops (pine/resin) on the tongue followed by brown sugar/molasses and other spices.

M: Medium to full body, low carbonation.

O: This collab is a extremely interesting combination. I thoroughly enjoy it and the more I drink the more I like it. Excellent!

Enjoying with my good friend pschul4

A: Pours a murky dark copper color with about a centimeter of head that leaves quite a bit of lacing at it recedes.

S: Smells fantastic. Strong scent of citric hops along with fruits such as tangerines, oranges, and grapefruits.

T: This is definitely a little unique for the Brown Ale category. It really doesn't taste like a brown ale at all, but more of an IPA. I can't grade based on style for this one because I actually really enjoy the taste of this brew. There is a light presence of hops accompinied by sweet and sour fruity notes such as apples mixed with lemons or oranges. Very enjoyable.

M: The perfect amount of carbonation that disappears quickly do give a smooth, pleasant feel.

O: I really enjoy this brew. I think it is a creative combination of different beers.
