@ Ölprovning i Klippan 18/10. Svart till färgen. Kaffe och choklad i doften. I smaken finns det choklad, russin, kaffe. Tycker den är något klen, skulle vilja ha den lite råare på något sätt.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with dark brown edges. Aroma is sweet with roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is smooth roasted malts and coffee, thick in the palate and very dry in the end, but bitterness stays restrained. This is really good, but I found myself drinking it really slowly, not necessarily looking forward to the next sip like I have with other Stone brews. Not being a coffee fan, this isn’t my ideal taste profile, but it’s well done.

22 oz. Bottle has been sitting in the back of my fridge for about 4 months. The aroma is overwhelming coffee bean. Notes of chocolate malt. The flavor is cold coffee, notes of cocoa, and rich, deep roasted malts. Long linger coffee roast long after the sip. Very light pine hop note. Silky texture and a full mouthfeel. Dense in body. Not sure if aging will hurt or help this but right now it is wonderful. I love coffee based brews and this for me is a homerun.

Sweet, grainy roasted barley vanilla, chocolate, and some red fruit. Opaque black under only a few wisps and a thin ring. Sweet, grainy pumpernickel quickly develops to bitter hops and chocolate. Dry coffee and peanuts comes in at the end with some hazelnuts. Full body, warming, lingering roasty bitterness at the back of the tongue. Moderate carbonation.
