On tap at the Stone 17th anniversary festival. Black more or less, with a small tan head. Alcohol, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and hints of banana in the aroma. Superbly soft and velvety, warming mouthfeel. Chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and banana flavor, long finish. Sure nice when drinking it now, a bit less interesting later on. 130817
