Missouri finally got Stoned.
Picked up at my local up the street. They even opened up a slot in the cooler to stash it. Glad they are sticking to the Stone guidelines. Poured a 22oz double deuce into my New Belgium globe. This beer pours a deep amber with a great 3 inch head that leaves seriously sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is hoppy up front. Nice notes of citrus and pine mixed with toffee and caramel with just a bit of biscuit and toast. As it warms the pine really starts drowning out everything else. Almost like blowing your nose with a pine branch. The flavor actually has a lot more malt then the nose would have led you to believe. Nice caramel and toffee notes with just a bit of burnt toast. Piny hopes help balance out the malt. Just a bit of booze and a hint of a medicinal hop bitterness at the tail of the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is nice and crisp, leaving a nice dryness on the palate. Overall, this is a good beer that deserves the reputation that it has garnered over the years.
