Picked up out of town b/c didn't know if the local places would get it. Poured into a Boulevard snifter
A: Pours deep deep red with a very thin dark tan head that fades quickly. leaving just a ring around the edge of the glass.
S: Dark roast malts, fruits reminiscent of cherries, and quite strong on the alcohol.
T: First thing I get is the high alcohol but it's quickly replaced with sweetness and roasty flavors. The aftertaste is dry bitterness, from what I think are the pecans and hops at work. I would like to be able to have tasted the different threads of aged, unaged and different blends of same for this beer. Sometimes when the whole beer has been aged in barrels it becomes the dominant flavor, While in this beer it blends seamlessly with the other flavors, It is neither dominant nor too subltle.
M: lots of bubbles on the tongue, else, smooth and moderately thick
O: Great. When I first heard about this I was excited. I think Stone is one of the best production craft breweries around, their sheer variety of beers is impressive, from my experience they do all of them well. As a fan of TNG and more recently Wil's celebration of geek culture the hype was that much more exciting. And as a long time reader of Fark.com who better than to collaborate with than Drew Curtis.
