3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black oily pour with a nice attractive tan head and lots of lacing .... Aroma of chocolate/cocoa, bitter roasted malts and dark fruity yeast ..... Taste is of bitter dry/dark cocoa, roasted malts and bitter dry hops on the back end .... The finish is very dry and dark with a big abrupt semi sweet chocolate finish .... Solid and dark with bitter chocolate being very true ... Mouthfeel is oily and slick .... Not bad at all

Pours a jet black color with excellent lacing and a decent bit of head retention. Smells like coffee and bitter chocolate. Tastes like bitter chocolate. The flavor is not too complex here, but it doesn’t have to be. This is reeeaaaalll good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep, deep black with a head that almost looked purple. Aroma has some nuts, coffee, chocolate, booze, raisins, licorice. Flavor is fairly sweet, with chocolate, creamed coffee, licorice, raisin. Booze is well-hidden in the flavor. Just a touch of bitterness to the finish/aftertaste. Pretty well-done stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
There is an oat,nutty smell that goes along with the very heavy coca and sweet malty aroma, dark as hell color, light head. The taste is initially bitter, light sweetness then bitter on the swallow with a very heavy sodium taste that lingers. Great ABV, another good Stone beer.
