Black with a coffee bean colored head. Ring with strong lacing.

Molasses, tobacco, bitter dark chocolate, caramel.

Light chocolate, burnt coffee. Not getting any oatmeal.

Dry bitter mouthfeel. Hot for being 7 years old. Light mouthfeeel for the ABV.

Not bad, but ultimately an abrasive beer with low complexity this year.

This is an updated review with a fresh bottle, the previous bottle was well past its prime.

A - Oil black color with light lacing.

S - Dark roasted chocolate malt with some hits of smokiness and light char.

T - Deep dark chocolate roast with some smokey char and a lingering bitter dark chocolate finish.

M - Oily slick mouth feel. Heavy and full bodied.

O - This is a solid stout and glad Stone brought this one back.
