As I hophead, I don't venture into the American Strong category often but of course Stone makes the deviation easy. Fantastic malts with just enough hops to keep it interesting. Between the artwork, appearance, aroma and flavor, what's not to love about this beer?

Poured aggressively in a standard pint glass.
A: amber dark red. Reminded multiple people in the room of cherry wood. A light foamy head, a few inches tall, formed but dissipated quickly after the pour.
S: More yeast than anything. Fresh biscuits on the head and light citrus undertones.
T: Strong upfront chocolate followed by dry citrus - most reminiscent of grapefruit rind.
M: Medium. Light carbonation and a dry bitter finish.
O: Very drinkable and affordable. There is little to no alcohol in the taste despite the medium/big body. The roasted chocolate upfront is usually something I don't like, but this brew did it well. I would be happy with another.
