1 PT. 6 FL. OZ. 2013 CLASSIC RELEASE 10.6% Alc/Vol

A – Black and thick, head is thin, but reminiscent of a nice espresso. Lacing is great.

S – Sweet here, notes of licorice, anise, cocoa, and dark bitter coffee. Lightly floral and estery.

T – Bitter, dark and rich. Licorice, black pepper. Strong, and powerful.

M – Great, carbonation is high for the style, but helps balance out the pepper and ester notes.

O – Great again from Stone. Fresh this is almost too bitter and potent; it will improve greatly with age.
