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

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass, drink before date of 11/28/11.

Pours a dark brown almost black color, a little light get through the edges but its basically black anywhere else, this has a large light brown head. The initial smell is mostly Cascadian hops, but underneath you get some nice roasted / caramel malts. Medium mouth feel. The taste is fantastic the immediate taste is the bitter hops but on the way down there is a nice combination of roasted malts and hoppy bitterness. Overall a fantastic beer, I consider myself a Stone fan boy, but I actually think this just might be better than the Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale.
