(12oz bottle). Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is citrus, florals, resin, caramel. Taste is semi-sweet with some sharp bitterness. Medium bodied with a dry, bitter finish. Not a big fan of this.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma leans toward the hops with some floral, pine and earthiness standing out. Some moderate fruit notes and background malt and nuttiness. The flavor opens with nice fruit notes with pine and earthy bitterness. The malt backbone is more noticeable. There is some faint nuttiness at the very back. Medium bodied and pretty creamy and smooth. Worth seeking out.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a large, frothy light tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is soapy, floral, and pine hops, nutty and toast malt, dates and wood/leaf notes. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, malt backbone, dark fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Steve_0 (3348) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Poured a deep brown with a slight red tint. Big tan head that doesnít seem to fade, itís been a half hour and itís still there, nice and fluffy. Smells of coffee, chocolate, slight smoke and pine. Good carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Tastes slightly smoky, chocolatey, coffee, and a nice bitter finish. Not bad.

The nose on this is incredible...smells like a fine gin with amazing botanicals and a bit of toasted malt. Incredible aromatics. Thin fading head. Mouth filling and great balance. Botanicals are apparent in the taste too. Loved this...Stoneís collaborations have really stepped it up lately, first with the íMore Brown Than Blackí and now this.

Thisis12ptfont (992) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Aromas of oats, nuts, bread and some coffee undertones. Deep brown appearance with no foam. Taste is slightly bitter hops upfront, quickly followed by complex flavors of nuts, cereal, barley and subtle coffee. Very thin texture with masked carbonation. Overall, a fantastic brew with tons of impressive flavors. The best brown ale iíve ever tasted. Iíd give it an A+ rating.

Enjoyed from bottle at Rockwellís in Chicago, IL on a humid warm night prior to an international trip. Appearance is a very cloudy vibrant amber with a rich white head, in the dark light, looks like a potion. Aroma mostly hoppy with grapefruit notes, also pretty malty, has a really great balance where both elements are equally prominent. Taste is just outstanding, rich, flavorful, bitter without compromising smoothness of the style. I get the molasses a bit, but it blends nicely and its sweetish, not too sweet. Really enjoy this one.

Bottle from North court in medina, nose is hoppy taste is hoppy and finish is syrupy and lingers.. Cool? Yes but not worth 24 a sixer

Zeswaft (1466) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Brown-amber color with off-white head. Very piney and resinous hops in the nose and flavor. Kind of tastes like an adhesive. Almost the exact same flavor profile as every other new Stone IPA derivative. A little boozy for 7%. Mouthfeel is a little lacking. High carbonation but a little thin. Nuttiness only comes through about 15 seconds after the finish.
