On tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and some intense bourbon and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with vanilla and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and woody bitterness along with an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty very beer that is a great blend of 4 barrel aged Stone beers.
