Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- One-finger off-white head. Several minute-long retention. Nice lacing and good carbonation. Auburn color with low clarity. Hazy and appealing.
S- Strong dark smells, yeast and some booze scents. Definitely some wood chips.
T- Bitter, deep and aggressive. Definite wooden taste that fights with the booze for control of the bitterness. Not an ideal taste, but I suppose I knew what I was getting into.
M- Smooth and very dry. Malty feel in the end.
O- Meh. Not my preferred style, but not as bad as some of the recent offerings I've had from Stone. Maybe I'm just not in the right mood to enjoy it to the extent it seems most people have.
