Gives a caramel, sugary/nutty flavor, with good head retention, and very smooth on the palate.

Bottle poured into a Pint glass, Best By: 10/27/13 Four finger, light looking, khaki head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving behind seemingly random splotches of lacing. Deep amber color, lightly opaque, minimal carbonation settling in beneath the head. The smell is similar to a fruitier IPA, with some sort of sweetness lingering that I canít put a finger on. The taste. Oh man, the taste. This is the most perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness Iíve yet experienced in a beer. Grapefruit leads, followed by that mysterious sweetness and a touch of smokiness. Medium body, pleasant mouthfeel, and thick rings of lacing form as you drink. This is definitely near the top of my list now, if not my favorite. A must try.

A: from the start you can smell citrus fruit mellowed in sweet caramel malt. A: deep amber color with off white head that slowly disappears. T: great caramel malt to with a nice crisp finish due to the oak barrel aging.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Dark amber pour with tan head. Oak aroma with herbal hops and roasted nut malt undertones. Taste follows the nose. Very nice blend of oak, malt and mild hops. Alcohol is hidden. Creamy, think body that lingers. Outstanding beer.

Fuck me. Not as fucking good as I was expecting. Cunt seemed a bit confused, one of those beers that isnít sure if itís straight or fucking gay.

Dark red when held up to the light. Not much head, even on a hard pour. Nice and bitter on the back of the tongue. Tastes like grapefruit. Wonderful!

NextBestThing (22) - Westtown, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Massively hopped nose along with detectable oak notes. Predictably bitter, tastes like gnawing at the side of a thickly barked tree probably would., and then comes the bitter. Beautiful looking beer, a rich red. Prefer the non-oaked version and actually prefer Stone’s standard IPA above all their other offerings. Definitely a different taste and something you may want to try if you need to experience variety for the sake of variety itself. OK.
