On Tap

Stone 15th Anniversary Celebration
CSU, San Marcos
San Marcos, CA

Thick black body with a thick light brown and cinnamon red head. Lots of lacing up and down the glass.

All the great big stout aromas are here without one dominating the stage too forcefully: roasted malts, espresso coffee, some sweet cream and chocolate notes as well.

A simple, yet complete, big stout. It does everything just about perfectly. The roast and espresso coffee stand out initially along with substantial yet not overwhelming hop bitterness, followed by sweet cream and chocolate. Zero alcohol presence. A complete stout.

Medium to thick bodied. Appropriate.

A supremely delicious imperial stout. The one beer I decided to have 2 tasters of at the Stone Anniversary event.

I'll be down to the brewery soon to fill a growler of this!
