Bottle shared at Perennial.

A - Pours dark brown, tan-colored head, thin collar.

S - Really boozy, char, sweet malts, roast, hops. This beer is confused as to what it's trying to be...sorta Imperial Black IPA + Stout + Who Knows.

T - Lots of booze, harsh, toasted malts, hoppy bitterness, syrupy sweet, toffee. The 11% is very evident and pretty in-your-face, which is not good. Lots of sweetness and lots of hops, which actually makes this beer harsh.

M - Medium body, light carbonation, harsh charred finish.

O - I was hoping for better results from his beer, but perhaps the alcohol will die down a bit with some age and allow this one to develop a bit over time. Slightly above average right now...hoping for better later.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - dark mahogany; a nice blend between brown and black

S - boozy with a touch of grassy hops.

T - drinks like a heavy, bitter porter and reminds me of Palo Santo Marron. Starts off a little harsh with bittersweet chocolate coating the tongue nicely. The plethora of grains and hops creates a complex beer but the flavors don't quite work and clash with each other.

M - bubbly and carbonation heavy. Personally I think this detracts from my enjoyment of this beer. It helps covers up the heat a bit.

O - I could see some potential with this beer for aging. I prefer to think of it as a not-quite-as-good Stone 15th Anniversary.

You have to be a special beer store in order to be able to convince Stone to brew a beer for....your 13th? 13th Anniversary?! That's an unusual year to celebrate, but at least there's a theme going on; 13 different grains and 13 different hops. 22 ounces coming my way. On to the beer:

If you like your beer to look dark, you are sure to like the appearance. The beer is, well, dark, polished obsidian, topped with a short head with solid retention. A creamy lace remains on top. The nose offers a soft hoppy fruitiness, malts that don't really lead to a straightforward note, and a few whisper of rubber (infection). I now apporach the beer with caution....

That infection thing is not found in the taste. The overall flavor is strong, not much of a surprise given the beer's 11% ABV. Passionfruit flavor is rampant throughout the beer. The sweetness from the malts yields some toasted sugar, fudge, and roast. The alcohol is hidden nicely, showing some appearances by warming the throat. What started up as a hop explosion has turned itself into a friendly duet of malt and hops.

What had the sign of infection turns out to be a beer that's fun to drink. If you like a bittersweet experience, now is the time to drink it.

On a side note, maybe Stone can brew Bottleworks' 17th Anniversary with a 17 theme. Monolith Ale anyone? http://www.stonebrew.com/cool/articles/pr/monolith/index.html

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance. Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of light tan head that fades to a ring pretty quickly.

Smell. Sweet caramel, big piney and earthy hops, some booze, roasty malts and a little cardboard.

Taste. Sweet raisins and caramel, pretty big piney and floral hops, a little chocolate and booze.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body with medium-low carbonation. Quite warm.

Overall. Some nice flavours going on but the hops seem a little strong and the alcohol is a little bit harsh. Would like to try again with a couple years on it.

22oz bottle poured into my Dogfish snifter. It poured dark brown in color with a thin tan head barely covering the top of the beer.

The aroma has a lot going on in it, I seem to get the malts and hops pretty equally though actually. It's got some roasted, chocolate and caramel malt flavors as well as a citrusy, slight American black Ale like flavor to it. It comes together pretty well actually and all the flavors feel pretty well balanced.

The taste also has a bunch of different hoppy and malty flavors to it. Chocolate and roasted malts seem to come out a little more at first, while the hoppy citrus really starts to come out towards the finish. There is a good amount of sweeter, malty flavors but at the same time the bitter, roasted malts and citrus rind flavors balance it pretty well. The more it warmed though the more I noticed a strong alcohol presence lingering in the finish. Pretty decent flavors overall.

The mouthfeel is leaning towards the heavier side with carbonation being a little above average. Overall, it was a pretty good beer. Everything comes together pretty well and it feels relatively balanced. It feels like it has a bit of everything in it, almost to the point of being overwhelming and unfocused though.

Served on-tap in a nonic pint at Downtown Johnny Brown's (San Diego, CA). Reviewed from notes.

A: Very dark brown with short cap of light beige head with a few spots of lace.

S: A very dark malty aroma crossed with almost overbearing herbal, earthy hops.

T: The dark maltiness is substantial and carries a fair amount of bulk to match the prune and raisin sweetness. The hoppiness is very herbal, almost grassy, with an earthy feel. Not bitter but a little indistinct in all the flavors.

M: The full body was enjoyable with low carbonation and a creamy, smooth feel.

O: A one-off that, while not bad, should probably stay that way,

Bottle to Stone Pint
22oz

Purchased at Total Wine, Brea for $6.99

App- Nice solid brown appearance with a good density behind it. A bit of ruby and crimson edges. A very solid two finger head with a good dense cap. Great cling and stick. Best part of the beer.

Smell- There is so much going on that even warm everything is just condensed into one note. A huge malt bill really adds up. Big and thick. A bit of smoke on the finish like a rauchbier.

Taste- This is a big beer. Huge malt bill takes over and all the hops just get buried IMO. A little one dimensional. Had a ton of malts but also was fairly creamy. A little bit of the smoke was on the backend of the flavor.

Mouth- A full medium body with a full medium carbonation. Large amounts of malts with some roast and some smoke. A little creamy and some spicy notes.

Drink- A beer that kinda let me down. It was a mish mash and hard to pick out individual flavors. One dimensional with just a very large malt bill. It was tasty but needed more layers.

#BOTG 56!

A collaboration between Seattle legendary beer store "Bottleworks" and Stone. Cool! This just showed up in Houston recently, so I'm guessing its pretty fresh. Poured from bottle into my CBS snifter (managed to jam the entire bomber in there!). Pours a pretty much pitch black color. It doesn't seem too thick, and has some really nice creamy head that sticks to the sides of the glass and hangs out on top of the beer. Nice, esp given the ABV of this beer. Smell- oohh nice. coffee wafts into my nostrils, as does some citrus hoppy aroma, along with like a chocolate biscuit. Taste- geez. Super aggressive and muddled hoppiness. Almost a salty coffee finish. There is so much going on with this beer, and its kind of all over the place. I guess I expected that, given the crazy amount of different and competing malt and hop profiles used. I keep getting an almost plastic/metallic flavor somewhere mid palate. It's not terribly detracting, and may just be an effect of the mash up of the components. This does have a nice creaminess to it that I really enjoy. Overall, this is a little bit of a mess, but its decent.

A: Dark brown with an inch of beige foam. Solid retention with scattered lacing.

S: Piney and earthy with a smooth roasted malt profile. Caramel blends with chocolate and a light nuttiness.

T: Upper moderate piney bitterness with lighter notes of grapefruit and orange. Lots of earth and chocolate with a firm roasted malt presence. The finish is a bit astringent with an increased level of bitterness and evident booze.

M: Upper medium in body with matching carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and sticky.

Overall: A solid beer. Not particularly memorable. Comes across as an everything but the kitchen sink beer and somewhat unfocused. Props to Stone on pricing this at $6. That's very fair.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep dark brown color with a tight creamy tan head that slowly disipates into a light cap.

The aroma is quite malty. A big toasted brown bread base that has notes of toffee, brown sugar, raisins, lightly charred wood and a hint of coffee. Some alcohol vapors. The hops didn't really come through for me.

The malt is dominate in the flavor as well. Again big brown bread base, toasted, with a burnt caramel and brown sugar sweetness. There is some raisin and cherry juice fruitiness. Some roasty, peppery and charred wood notes. The hops are earthy and bitter which provide a needed offset against the sweet malt. The beer still leans on the sweet side. There is a noticable belly burn and alcohol flavor which is a tad unpleasant.

The feel is moderate with active carbontion, has a semi-soft feel to it. Sweet on the palate and slightly sticky. Almost gets cloying but the roasted malt and hops barely keeps it in check. Big alcohol presence.

A big flavorful brew which balances the line of becoming too sweet. The alcohol is too noticable

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: (4.5)

- Wonderful dark rootbeer brown with a couple fingers of viscous light mocha colored head that slowly has settled to a messy bubbly lace-making froth and thick island over the brew. Like a frothy shake. Certainly a pretty beer.

Smell: (3.5)

- Lots of esters and creamy dark smoky and earthy grains. A husky dark brew. Smells of light salts, peat, raisins, fig, alcohol, and a mess of herbal and grassy hops.

Taste: (3.5)

- Huge bitterness pine, grass, and earthy hops. Lots of them. The grain is a big tossup of smoke, chocolate, caramel, peated malts, and sweat husky bready grain overall. Quite the interesting mix. Some strong alcohol is present, and unfortunately an off band-aid-like flavor which is usually due to chlorine in the water. Perhaps that isn't it, but the medicinal off flavor is there.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)

- This is a rather heavy bodied and chewy brew. Quite drying and cloying, and sweet without really being sticky and syrupy. Stone has always been very good with their sweetness levels being rather low in feel. Well carbonated.

Overall: (3.5)

- Overall this beer could be a lot better if it didn't have the off flavors. I feel it could be refined a little more. It's use of bittering hops is huge which is nice, and overall it could be a huge balanced well aging beer. Just not quite there for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a nearly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that bears little retention before subsiding to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly patch of surface foam. Light but resilient lacing.

S- Sweet and roasty aroma with notes of cocoa and cream. Also a touch of toffee. Not as much of a booze scent as one would expect from an 11 percenter.

T- Ah, but you can sure taste the booze. A barrage of malt flavor and then a swift kick of alcohol is what I get with every sip. And sip is all I can do. Notes of dark chocolate, rum and a hint of smoke.

M- Bitey feel with a chewy texture and medium-low carbonation. Also a bit syrupy.

O- I think some aging would definitely do this beer better justice but I don't have the proper storage facilities at this time so I went ahead and reviewed it fresh. All in all, it's not a bad drink, just all over the place with the 13 different malts and 13 different hop varieties.

A: Pours a dark brown with a solid dark brown head. Good retention and some lacing.

S: Roastiness up front, medium roast with maltiness yet kind of a woody.

T: Roasted malt, some spice with slight bitter finish. 13 different grains? But there is some depth.

M: Medium carbonation and malty. Hops do not show themselves.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - pours a rich opaque dark brown with tints of red, very dark. Forms about an inch of mocha colored head with fair retention and decent lacing.

S - Very sweet and malty, dark chocolate richness, mocha, caramel, molasses type aromas complimented with dark fruits. Some earthy/spiced hops come through, but mostly rich sugars/malts.

T - Pretty strong tasting, malts and hops intertwine throughout the sip, bold spiciness comes through more at the finish. A nice dark fruit presence shows up before and after a mild alcohol burn comes in at the finish lingers a bit. Pretty robust and malts dominate for the most part. Definitely a little yeasty at the finish as well.

M - Pretty full bodied, appropriate carbonation. A sipper for me.

O - All in all pretty decent, a little hard to appreciate all the flavors with so much going on and a bit of alcohol/yeaster burn twang 1-2 punch that subtracts from the other flavors. the finish is less than desirable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a deep, rich, brown-black. Massive head formation. Big, pillowy, the color of coffee with too much milk. Retention is solid and leaves some hefty notches of lacing. Impossible to see through. Pours a little thick.

Smell: Toasted and roasted malts. Some caramel, Burnt, cooked sugars. Deep fruits. Cherry, plum, and fig are predominant. Big bready/biscuity component as well. It's all over the place. Hops are earthy, citrusy, and floral at the same time. Citrus begins to dominate as the beer warms. Biting alcohol on the back. Layer of spicy herbal hops as well. It's a kitchen sink approach.

Taste: Caramel, toffee, and burnt sugar. Epic levels of burnt sugar. Big bready malts fuse with some caramel malts. Earthy and dank in good measure. Nice level of pine resin creeps over some orange rind and oily grapefruit flesh. Alcohol bite as well. Cocoa powder.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth. Carbonation is big, but doesn't manage to pull through the insane body of this beer. Nice balance between the two. Drinks like cream.

Overall: A hot mess, but the cute kind.

This is a kitchen sink beer, and an unabashed one at that. Flavors are everywhere and then some, and it's almost too much. Almost being the operative word. It's a lot, share it, but definitely drink it. It's Stone, you should expect this.

Bottle served in a Stone Old Guardian glass. Such an odd beer, I did enjoy it but I did not love it. Super weird. Beer is black and has a one finger tan head with some lacing, and some retention.

Aroma is sweet, a little smokey, a little hoppy, a little grassy. Odd aroma.

Beer tastes different every time I take a drink. First is like a hoppy porter, then the smoke creeps in, the earthiness and mild hop bitterness all play together OK but not great. I think it is just OK. Not great.

Viscous pour this really looks like motor oil when you first pour it.

Clear dark brown colored beer with a tall brown colored head.

Smells strongly of patent malt and medicinal hops there is a distinct carrot aroma to it. Chocolate and toasted bread. Scents of mint and menthol.

Starts out sweet and thick with a chocolate and mint taste. Chocolate is really strong in this mildly bittersweet the malt really keeps the bitterness in check. Warming in the chest from the alcohol but there is the cooling effect of the mint. This probably needs aging to bring out more flavors, as it is it is this is a monster of a beer.

Mouthfeel is milkshake.

Overall a big beer that needs to age a bit.

22oz. Pretty solid black, some light around the edges. Very light tan head, retained well enough.

Aroma, a lot of pine and citrus still. Some anise and cocoa. Definetely potent smelling.

Taste, There is a lot here almost gets in its own way. Similar to the Schmalz offerings, sort of. Much more stone fruit and citrus here. Equally as much roast and grainy malt. finish is quite dry, cocoa is very prevelent.

It is warm, the ample carbonation doesn't help the slight harshness either. Probably best a sharing sipper.
Guessing this will be like Double Bastard in that it is best after about 2-3 years.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Delirium Tremens snifter.

I had a bottle back when it was originally released, and kept this one in the cellar for a while. The first bottle was running a little hot, and it has mellowed nicely in the last few months.

A - it pours almost pitch black. Decent amount of fluffy off-white head. Moderate lacing, but you can see that this beer has some serious wine-like legs. This beer just looks like used motor oil.

S - Not as intense of an aroma as I was expecting. Some sweet overripe fruit, but not as much as the first bottle. More leather and smoke this time around, with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Not bad, just not mouthwatering.

T - This beer is a little schitzophrenic. It has a tremendous grain bill coupled with a ton of different hops. It all comes off a little muddled, but surprisingly delicious. It's somewhat like an American strong ale mixed with a big barley wine. Lots of overripe fruit and caramel, with the smoke and bitterness present in the nose. Every sip seems a little different than the one before it.

M - big, thick, brash, and well-carbonated. It has the mouth-coating characteristic of an imperial stout, but is carbonated like an imperial IPA. I've never had a beer quite like this one before, and the mouthfeel fits with the beer.

O - I'm curious to see how this beer ages. This wasn't a hone run of a beer, but it's certainly a solid double. Worth a try if you can find it, but it's not destined to be an all-time favorite.

22oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks Chris!

(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Some brown froth & lace.

(S)- Lots of baked bread, raisin, cocoa, and molasses. Dense and rich. Very subtle smokiness to it.

(T)- A rich and dense combo of raisin, cocoa, bark(oak?), and that same subtle smoky peat on the finish I noticed in the smell too.

(M)- A mellow carbonation level. A nice balance, though quite rich and thick.

(O)- Very big and rich, but balanced well and dynamic/complex enough to keep you interested. That subtle smoky peat in the background is really interesting in combination with the rest of the beer's profile.

22oz bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a deep raisin brown with a huge, dense, and oily dark tan head that slowly faded into a thick and rocky film leaving streaks of lace down the glass.
S: Complex nose of malts and hops. Definitley hard to nail down any one element. Smells like a combination of styles, but I would say it reminds me the most of a black IPA.
T: Boozy. Definitely boozy. It works well with the potent mix of flavors though. I get a malt profile that tastes like a mix of a brown ale and a smoked porter, with a leafy, grassy and piney hop profile that doesn’t overpower the grains. The finish is slightly sweet, but the aftertaste is lightly smoky and definitely bitter. I get hints of caramel, toasted marshmallows, cocoa powder and rye. Potent, grainy, spicy, boozy and hoppy all around.
M: Thick body, thick, chewy and greasy mouthfeel, with smooth and slick carbonation. Booze is warm and a bit distracting though.
O: A bit of a clusterfuck. This beer is potent and boozy. I think I like it, but it takes some getting used to. There is definitely a lot going on. Worth a try. Cheers.

pours a dark coffee color with amber highlights around the edges. an inch of mocha colored head shows good staying power and leaves tons of lacing behind. i'm able to detect hops (go figure), chocolate, oat, rye and alochol. the taste i'm not real fond of. it wants to be sweet, roasted, hoppy, burnt all at the same time. just too much goin on for me. a full body and nice carbonation are over shadowed by the burnt grains and sugars. unfortunatly not real excited by this beer.

O: Falls somewhere between the American strong ales I've had (Double Bastard, Funky Jewbelation, Life and Limb), and the American black ales I've had (Dubhe, Self-Righteous Ale, Wookey Jack, and Pitch Black IPA) - it was like an Imperial black IPA, but with a little more sweetness.

22oz brown bomber, vintage tied to anniversary date.

LOOK: Amazing head, lacing is spectacular, shade or two away form pitch black

SMELL: Toasty, fruitcake, alcohol, hop resin, papaya, broth, orange peel, spicy, biscuits, kumquats

TASTE: Creamy, silky, dank, bitter, alcohol, pungent, citrus rind, guava, cocoa powder, thick, fresh cut grass, earth, ripe dragonfruit, pulling finish

Some say it is a hot mess and others love it. My palate was tested and I survived. Did I cry? No. Did I have fun trying to figure out what the fuck I was sipping? Yes. To date ... the most fun / interesting brew I have had this year. Gratz BottleWorks on 13 years and a huge nod to Stone for brewing this with them.
