Deep Amber color. Touch of bourbon sweet maltiness with fairly aggressive hops underneath. Big thick body with lots of hops, and massive malt backbone with tons of caramel and bourbon. Slightly boozy, but great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a dark copper color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of oak with some residual sugar notes and strong hoppy notes of citrus and earthy notes. Taste is also dominated by oak notes with plenty of residual sugars and strong hoppy notes with light oak in the finish. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good stuff overall and very enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy ruby red with a finely bubbled off white head that fades to a rim and faint coating. Aroma is caramel malts, wood, resin, citrus. Taste is pine hops, oak, and bitter grapefruit on a burnt malt bed. Very dry. Bitter finish. Dry hopping is evident. Balance is enhanced with some warming. Enjoyable blend 'o bastards.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap in a tulip glass at Butcher and the Boar with commonshawn. Visually right up my alley. Big frothy head on a mahogany colored ale. Aroma is mostly hoppy with a hint of malt. The head shows a willingness to stick around. Taste really feels like an imperial IPA...plenty hopness. Aggressive like most Stone varieties. I have a strong desire for a more balance...more sweetness or sour/tart fruit. A really well done beer as expected from this brewery...just not as amazing as I thought it would be.
