1 pt 6 fl oz bomber from Brawleys lured into a tulip glass. I like the fact that I tried to type "poured" and it got spell checked into "lured". Enjoy by 2.15.04.

A - Almost jet black, with ruby/brown highlights. Half finger head that moves to a thin but sturdy lace.

S- Fantastic. Your eyes do not prepare you for the smell. Orange , grapefruit, maybe fingers of raspberry. Lightly toasted malts.

T - More of the same. Strangely delicious. Some hop bitterness on the finish. Can not detect the 8.7%.

M - Mouthfeel is spot on. Slightly creamy with low but present carbonation.

O - I can see why it was one of Stone's favorites. Give it a go.
