Pitch black with a good inch of tan, tight, foam that has some impressive staying power. Smells like the vanilla, molasses, bourbon bomb from hell...in a good way. Decadent, savory, vanilla, chocolate, surprisingly sweet(me likey) the smoke plays the background perfectly, and becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Nice thick mouthfeel one would expect from Stone. Quite impressed by this bad boy. Great job Stone. Big Thank You to Flannys for the opportunity to try this, you guys rock!
