It's very tasty and as the label says, "you probably won't like it!" Ha!

Very good beer, but for the faint of heart. If you've never had this style before, the first sip can be intimidating. It's a beer to be sipped and savored, not chugged. Highly recommended.

Pours a clear cooper brown color with a two finger off white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, and resin. Taste is pine, resin and bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a bit of an oily feel. Overall, a very good strong ale that is undeniably stone, no mistaking it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown. Nice two-finger fluffy brown head with good retention and lacing.
Smell: Sweet caramel, toffee and roasty malt aromas up front, some slight grassy notes in the background.
Taste: the sweet malty flavors slap you in the face on the first sip, but then the bitter piney hops come on for a good combo punch.
Mouthfeel: Thick and kinda chewy, just what you'd expect from the taste. Lingers on the palate long enough to make you want another slap.
Overall: Just a great beer, every time I drink one I remember just how damn good this beer is. Really stands the test of time. Well done, Stone!
