11/14/12 On tap. I'm usually skeptical of Stone's stuff, they seem to be hop happy. As a big Imperial stout kind of guy, but this really hit the spot. Wonderfully smooth. Not too sweet. Perfect body. I think I'm in love. Makes me wonder if they got this so right, why we disagree on so much of the rest?
