Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Dubbed Stone Mixtape Ale-GK & LU’s Blend Vol. 1, it’s a calculated mingling of seven beers from Stone Brewing Co. devised by CEO Greg Koch and brewer Laura Ulrich.

Those beers include everyday normies like Stone Levitation IPA, Smoked Porter and Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, plus library beers including 2011 Imperial Russian Stout and Belgo Anise Imperial Russian Stout brewed the same year that’s been infused with sage, peppers and lemon thyme.

On tap for the 2nd Anniversary event at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of beer form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and a huge mix of herbal, floral, and spice aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, citrus zest, herbal hops, and a variety of herbal, floral, and spice flavors. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very interesting blend that actually reminds me very much of Anchor's OSA in the flavors.
