4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Espresso, char, cocoa nibs, dried cherry, soy, booze, and tobacco aromas. Black with bronze around the rim, and with a very minimal, fully fading head. Dry, roasty, bitter, and savory, with flavors of cocoa, espresso, molasses, cracked black pepper, and a shot of vodka. Full bodied, well carbonated, strong, and finishes with coffee and dark earth lingering on the palate.

Opaque black body with a thick tan head. Smells amazing and decadent - espresso, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is chocolaty, smooth, espresso adds a nice layer of complexity. Stone somehow made one of my favorites even better.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma has big roasted malt, dark chocolate, strong coffee with the typical Stone hops there as well. The flavor has much of the same ; big roasted malt, dark chocolate, strong coffee and hops. The roast can be overpowering when this is too cold. Upon warming, this opened up more and be a nice beer.

Espresso IRS by Stone is delicious. It pours a deep brownish black with almost no head. The aroma of espresso is pungent. As soon as you crack the bottle open you can take it in. The flavor is perfect... A nice rich stout with bold espresso flavor and undertones of chocolate.

Having a great beer bar a few blocks from your office provides a free beer insurance program for those brews you missed in the bottle, as was the case with the Stone EIRS. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Pours black with a tan head, unsurprisingly. Flavor is sweet, then bitter, then finishes with a strong coffee flavor. Next year I will be sure to grab several bombers of this. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Bomber. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is roast, coffee,and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roast and dark chocolate flavor with boozey finish. Good.
