TEMP: Cellared @ approx 55 degrees, fridge chilled approx 15 min. before opening
Pours a clear, dark brown color with some serious ruby highlights. Minimal head forms and pretty much remains. The lacing is in spots and small strands and fairly sticky.
Okay...not really what I was prepared for....
Big notes of dark roasted malts. Lots of dark roasted coffees and some dark chocolates. This blends well with some nice earthy hop notes. Light traces of floral and citrus hops, also.
Very interesting nose. I like it.
This one is kind of tough to nail down. It's got big, dark roasty notes like a great stout. A good amount of dark chocolate malts like a good porter. Then you get a good healthy dose of floral and citrus hops on a level of an IPA, almost to DIPA range. On top of that, it's got a wonderful smoked oak presence laying all over it. Despite all of the earthiness that this one has, it also has a nice hint of sweetness to it.
Medium body with a mild-to-medium level of carbonation. Very smooth, slightly active and just a touch of creaminess.
The 8.60%abv is fairly well-hidden in this one. You can spot it, but it's by no means overbearing. The taste is deep and earthy, but not overly rich. A good drinkable beer, I say.
Stone does some great beers on their own, obviously. Brewdog also does some really good ones, at least in my opinion, anyway. Working together has produced something quite unique and very tasty. Here's to hoping that they do more collaborations, in the future.

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.

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.
