Served in a signature Stone snifter glass. Vintage bottle from 2012, poured 06/14/2014.
Appearance: Very dark opaque brown-black with medium bubbles, head is tan rising to maybe a notch below finger's length.
Smell: Sour yeast smell, bland could be more potent.
Taste: Nice complex and smooth, heavy nutmeg feel. Lightly spicy with a pinch of sourness to it. It is definitely not for everyone.
Mouth: Medium bodied carbonation. Yeast feel at the end that comes off a bit dry.
Overall: Not a bad beer at all and if you see the bottle grab it. I bought this a very long time ago upon it's release and decided to finally crack it open just for the hell of it. Drink up and enjoy, Salud!

SUPER clove taste, can't get past anything but the cloves. Label says mild clove spice added, I don't believe it. More cloves than I can handle. Like drinking a box of Djarums. Cloying, super-sweet, ultra-clovey nasty spice flavor to this one. Maybe I just tried a winter beer too late in the season? Not sure, but would not be getting this one again.
