Best beer I have had so far, everything about it blew me away, and that was something I had not yet experienced with Stone, with their IPA and normal arrogant bastard proving to be just above average.

A: Beautiful brown tinge, with main colour being a ruby red

S: Sheeeit, best smell I have had from a beer. The oak comes through with vanilla, citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and a herbal hoppiness all combining to make something truly spectacular.

T: Vanilla comes through strongly now with sharp piney hops and citrus breaking up the sweetness of both the vanilla and this insanely tasty caramel maltiness (really want to know the malt bill for this bad boy).

M: Probably the best thing about this beer. Don't know what it's like out of the bottle, but on tap, I have never experienced a hoppy beer like this to be so rich and full in it's mouthfeel. Quite an achievement, the best mouthfeel I have experienced.
