look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cryptic label text.

12 oz. bottle -> snifter

A - Darkdarkdarkdarkdark. Thin, oily slick of microscopic bubbles for a head. Looks enticing, but it's not the Mona Lisa.

S - SO INTERESTING. From an aroma standpoint, this beer combines everything I love about IPA and everything I love about stouts. Fruity, herbal, and citric notes come through, and remind me of IPA, while toasty, coffee chocolatey aromas come through on the whole dark beer side of things. Very, very nice.

T - Yum. pretty much everything you'd expect to see based on the nose. the finish is sweeter and... somehow smoother than i'd expect. but the IPA side of things is definitely present. Very, very nice.

M - Medium bodied, maybe not as smooth as I would like to see, but solid nonetheless.

D - I want to swim in this beer.

4.09/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A brown/black pour with a finger of tan head which quickly dissipated. Smells of roasted coffee, charred barrel, chocolate. Flavor is on point with aroma.. Lots of charred oak, roasted grains, dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness of rich milk chocolate. Medium in body with hardly any carbonation.
At $6 a bottle, it was hard o pass up on it seeing as that's relatively cheap for brewdog one offs, and stone has let me down seldomly. It was worth the gamble. A nice tasty dark beer.

Bottled on 12/12/10
Enjoyed on 3/20/14
A - jet black, poured like a Culver's root beer, lots of carbonation bubbles, big head that settled quickly to a small tan ring.
S - smell those funky Belgium hops, licorice, molasses
T - rye, chocolate. hops seem to have faded a bit, some hints of a stout variety, I get a little alcohol burn at the end.
M - carbonated, goes down easy, I get a good whiff of funk on the nose while drinking.
O - very nice style. I purchased this off the clearance shelf recently and am glad I did. I would like to try this a little fresher to compare.

Pours an impressive jet black. Smells like bread, citrus, a little sour. Tastes a little watery and sour, hints of toast. My girlfriend says it reminds her of soy sauce, which I agree with just a little bit. Like a cross between a weak IPA and a stout but not very impressive either way.

Hunahpu Day pour #12. Pours dark brown with big kahki head. Smells floral with a bit of citrus, hints of roast perhaps, and a little sour. Flavor is heavy scotch and dark fruits, comes in hotter than expected and not much depth in flavor. A bit boozy though only medium on the palate. Not my favorite. Blegh.

Serving type: on-tap

12 oz. bottle, with a bottled on date of 11/12/2010. A long since retired collaboration beer between BrewDog and Stone, my third review of a collaboration beer on BeerAdvocate. Glad to have landed this bottle, even if I am late to the party, my local beer store had about three of these left.

Poured into a St. Bernardus Watou chalice.

A - Pours a dark cola brown / almost black colored body with the tiniest centimeter of off-white head which fizzled out of existence immediately. Some cola brown bubble appearance chillin on top.

S - Smell is of dark fermented fruits like figs and dates. Some lighter fruit / bubblegum malts, and some funky Belgian yeast smell are noticeable also. Faint muted hop presence. Some alcohol fumes. Smells almost more like an imperial stout than it does a black Belgian DIPA.

T - Taste is surprisingly tame compared to what I was expecting, based on the nose. Light, faded hop character has turned sugary and sweet, unlike the spicy bitter hop bomb this may have been two years ago. Some dark fermented plum & fig notes. Some coffee bean & chocolate bitterness, even. Slight alcohol warmth, but not much considering this beer's intense 8.60% abv.

M - Feel is bitter & dry. Some coffee bean presence, and faded hops that gives way to a sweet green apple skin finish.

Overall, this is a tasty beer, even if I didn't manage to catch it at it's prime. I'm enjoying what this beer has become; more tame and mellow than it may have been when it was fresh. Definitely glad I got the chance to try this beer, although it is not something I would pay for another 12 oz. bottle, especially at this beer's price range.

BrewDog / Stone Bashah ---4/5.
