The Beers of California
Freshness Date: None
A: A finger of off white head tops off this mahogany brown brew. Ample lacing as the head dissipates.
S: Earthy and bready with toffee, caramel, and mocha sweetness. There is an underlying pine tree aroma which comes through the malt sweetness at times but the nose is full of complex sugary sweetness
T: Round malt notes, heralded by the nose, of toffee, brown sugar, caramel and mocha espresso. The sweetness quickly transitions to a leafy, piney bitterness with intertwining citrus zest. Good warming alcohol which is well balanced between the malt and hops.
M: Chewy, smooth, and oily linger all topped off with a moderate amount of zesty carbonation.
O: The Arrogant Bastard of the Stone Brewery line really does everything from sweet, complex malt to aggressive hopping. One of the Stone brews that really showcases both strength and depth of flavor.
