12oz bottle -

My 2nd (or maybe 3rd, not exactly sure) time with the Stone collaboration series. I enjoyed this one very much. Aroma has a huge coffee punch, coffee with just a smidge of toasted bread/coconut. Flavor showcases the chocolate malts, and it was really hard to pick up any coconut-y goodness. Really reminded me of a Kaluha cake batter. I really like it, but the coconut/macadamia flavors (which can be rather delicate) seemed buried. Maybe fresh itís a different story? Nice beer though and would buy again.

Bottle pours deep brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Aroma is heavy with chocolate syrup, roast malt, coffee and coconut. Flavor shows primarily coffee with the rest fading into the background with additional notes of tar and macadamia nuts. Yes I said it.... Iím not sure if itís because I read it, or ate plenty of them growing up, but I swear itís there. Overall body is full and finishes dry and slightly sour. Pretty damn good stuff.

Bottle a plovmand tasting, thanks. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is loads of coffee, caramel and malt with a hint of coconut. The flavour is dominated by coffee, with herbal, caramel, alcohol and coconut notes. Not really my thing.

At a tasting: sourish green coffee, pina colada mainly in the aroma, weak nutty notes, lots of roasted malts, some burnt notes, medium creamy body, dry sourish finish, real good but not great.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Yuval. Black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee beans, nuts and light fruity hints. Sweet-sourish flavor of roasted malt, green coffee beans, a bit of nuts, a bit of alcohol, woody hints, herbal and fruity hints and a bit more bitterness in the finish. Strange but not bad.

"itís rare when a beer youíve built up exceeds expectations, and since Stone is my favorite brewer, hopes were sky high for this one. not to worry, though, it did not disappoint. one of the best, if not THE best, porter that iíve ever had. the aroma was incredibly rich and decadent. coffee, chocolate, roasted malt...with flavor to match and a wonderfully smooth full body. Awesome, awesome, awesome beer!"
