Stone never disappoints me....cool bottle, got a limited release bottle which is cool. As for the beer, its strong, coming out hot, canít really taste the alcohol but i would describe the flavor as sharp. Real intense/complex beer. As for the flavor, getting sort of a nutty chocolate vibe, bitter aftertaste, hints of coffee as well. Really intense stout, a definite sipper, lives up to the imperial billing. Does taste barrel aged, I bet this thing would be even better 6 months out.

jhamp9 (949) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2014
Near black with a then khaki head. Oily lacing. Amazing aroma. Sweet caramel, raisin bread, and booze. Taste is caramel, char, dark fruits, and some hot alcohol. Alcohol is slightly numbing on the tongue.

hawthorne00 (2258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2014
Tap. Black, small tan head lasts well. Aroma of vanilla, mocha, nutty/ fudgy Indian sweets, cardamon, galangal. Rich velvety texture. Taste has mocha vanilla, lush fudginess but a nice lean towards dry near the end. Unfortunate big boozy rush at the end is a jolt. Maybe better in bottles - itís not hot or unpleasant, but jumps out a bit. Better as it warms: booze more integrated into bourbon-like flavours, but still a bit much for the beer.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bomber shared at the April 5, 2014 Charlottesville tasting. Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, whiskey, mild wheat. The taste is chocolate, roast, nuts, mild whiskey. Medium bodied.

Beerenberger (1274) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, and pecans. Pours a deep dark brown with a khaki head and moderate lacing. The taste follows the nose - nutty, vanilla, roasted malts and some alcohol. Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a rewarding stout from Stone Brewing.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Whisky, semisweet cocoa, sugar daddy aroma - but the whiskey is cheap. (The next day, when Iím putting in my rating, the aroma reminds me of dark cooking rice wine) Burnt 10w-40 appearance with a small ringing tan head. Bitter cocoa, woody, alcohol bittering, warming, lots of molasses. Big beer, but I didnít love it. On tap, Proof, Tallahassee.

Reynolds314 (2103) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Nice beer even though its really really sweet. Pours inky black with brown head. Aroma is heavy pecans, light bourbon, vanilla, mollases chews. Taste is once again very sweet with some roasty ash to balance it a bit.

On draft at Torst. There are tons of pecans in this nutty stout. It is fairly sweet and very flavorful. Another superb Stone collaboration.

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours oily and black, very rich and smooth, with an excellent palate. Multifaceted imperial, more interesting than many, good hops; canít really get the pecans however. Excellent.
