As usual, Stone have created a quality brew. While I would not agree that this is a world class brew, I would definitely agree that this is an outstanding brew. The brew's strongpoint being its nice balanced aroma of fine malts and an amazing pour. The brew is very strong, pungent and acidic in a good way and leaves a great aftertaste that sticks for a while. A very worthy brew and as always, many thanks to Stone, who are easily one of the better American breweries.

Poured into a 12 oz Pint glass.

A - Clear amber color, pretty nice head too. Good lacing.

S - Slightly hoppy but malty at the same time. Smells like a real good balance between bitter and sweet.
T- Creamy, and fucking delicious. Starts out with floraly like hops, but then finishes with notes of chocolate, interesting right?! Not much of a bite but the hop presence still faintly lingers around. An AMAZING taste.
M - Thick, creamy ale. Somewhat heavy.

Overall, this is an awesome beer put out by stone, as usual. Ill definitely buy this again.

Enjoyed this bottled brew out a large snifter glass.

A: Pours an amber hue with a frothy, off-white, solid head that slowly dissipates leaving a great trail and solid lace.

S: Hoppy caramel aroma.

T: Heavy sweet malt mixed with a bitter hop flavor. Very Barley-wine like.

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent Brew – great malt and hop mix.
