Stone Bottleworks 13th Anniversary
A- pour produces a 1-1/2 finger light mocha colored head resting on a deep brown colored body. Good lacing a decent retention 4
S- chocolate malt, molasses, brown sugar, light coffee scent, bitter and earthy hop scent, a little alcohol, faintly smokey. 3.5
T- earthy, slightly smokey, mocha, light coffee, woody, ripe dark fruits, and slightly hoppy slight alchohol but well hidden given the abv. I was hoping for a but more hop taste given the 13 hops varities used but if I would have known that I would just think it is a very good, very malt forward beer with good hop flavor in the background. A very enjoyable sipper. 4
M- medium carbonation and body. Good mouthfeel, typical of Stone. 4
O- woody, smokey, earthy, warming. Wish it was released in the winter because it's a great winter beer instead of a warm memorial day weekend. Still very good though. 4

(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thin cocoa tan head that is supported by a slow microbubble carbonation that slides up the sides of the glass.
S- The plastic aroma and dubble yeast esters lead to a stout earthiness and a finish of some woody dank hops that are dark aswell. There is a roasted black malt bite and a hop bitterness in the finish.
T- The sweet crystal malt and circus peanut esters blend with an alcohol taste the mixes with the dark hops in the finish. There is a roasted black malt bite and a hop bitterness that lingers after each sip. Some chocolate malt and dried fruit esters come through as it opens aswell.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a creamy texture and an alcohol warmth in the finish.
O- This beer is complex but a bit chaotic with flavors all over the place. Some plastic and other odd flavors are in their but most ore nice layers of malt and hops and esters.
