3.8/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Look - thin, somewhat sticky with no real head
Smell - really boozy and toasty and sweet
Taste - a little Belgium toastiness and some hops. Not as flavoraful as I was hoping
Feel - really thin, no carbonation
Overall - ok but not worth the price at all.

Bottled 12/11/10; drank 10/17/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Brown/black/purple hue.

Dark tan head; decent lace.

Raspberry, chocolate, fresh earth & coffee nose-complex!

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Fresh earth, black coffee & mild raspberry flavors up front; dry tobacco finish. As this warms, a hint of pickle juice emerges. Not as good as the noses promises, but worth quaffing.

Cool artwork supplied by Stone, awesome color scheme. Beer itself is also black, and thicker than expected. Tan head 1/2" in depth. Impressive. Aroma was similar to a schwarzbier, was hoppy, roasty, thicker than that style though. Coffee and chocolate malt notes, hops, bitterness, c hops.

Taste offered a little bit of what you've come to expect in a porter, schwarzbier and black ipa. Hoppy, but not top notch in that department, offers too much roast to qualify, but lacks the lager yeast of a schwarz. Hodgepodgy, still a good beer. Covers abv well. If you like those three styles I'd check this out, kind of cost prohibitive to be a repeat purchase though, but it was a nice thing to tick.

Served in a snifter glass. Vintage bottle date 02/03/2011 Poured 10/28/2014.

Appearance: Black and opaque, comes off very thin with a subtle head. Off white with a tan tint and rose initialy to maybe 1/3" at best with a very hard pour.

Smell: Bland scent but you feel a grapefruit feel. Honestly weakest property of the beer but don't be afraid.

Taste: Light malts with a light citrus feel. Good but still simple. Still bitter with a light range of IBUs which comes off pretty obvious. Was expecting more especially considering nine out of ten DIPAs improve with age.

Mouth: Comes off a bit flat, might mke you think of an irish stout not sure of this os because of the brewery or because of the age of the beer.

Overall: Smooth black DIPA that satisfies most palates. Very rare and if you are lucky enough to find a bottle I would say grab it. Has room for improvement but rarely you find a smooth brew as this one that still delivers a punch.

A brown/black pour with a finger of tan head which quickly dissipated. Smells of roasted coffee, charred barrel, chocolate. Flavor is on point with aroma.. Lots of charred oak, roasted grains, dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness of rich milk chocolate. Medium in body with hardly any carbonation.
At $6 a bottle, it was hard o pass up on it seeing as that's relatively cheap for brewdog one offs, and stone has let me down seldomly. It was worth the gamble. A nice tasty dark beer.

Bottled on 12/12/10
Enjoyed on 3/20/14
A - jet black, poured like a Culver's root beer, lots of carbonation bubbles, big head that settled quickly to a small tan ring.
S - smell those funky Belgium hops, licorice, molasses
T - rye, chocolate. hops seem to have faded a bit, some hints of a stout variety, I get a little alcohol burn at the end.
M - carbonated, goes down easy, I get a good whiff of funk on the nose while drinking.
O - very nice style. I purchased this off the clearance shelf recently and am glad I did. I would like to try this a little fresher to compare.
