Straight from the Stone brewery into a growler poured into a mug. Lacing for days with a nice creamy head. The oaky nose remains the center stage with the scent from the hops shining through. Exceptionally smooth while still remaining a flavorful ale in a way that only Stone could do. The hops in the finish keeps the bastard ale arrogant for a good reason.
Serving type: growler

11/14/12 On tap. This time I was fortunate enough to taste it side-by-side w/the non-oaked. The Non-oaked was more to my liking as it didn't remind me of chardonney. This is still a fine brew but I was looking for something to black-&-tan w/the Stone Russian Imperial stout (I know...I know) & adding that another element wouldn't work (I KNOW...I KNOW, ALREADY.)

2012 On tap. This is one high hop brew that I can take. It has so many things going on that one never knows they're being assaulted by all that bitterness. Well crafted & worth tracking down.
