3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Stone’s 2008 Winter Storm. Black. Big fluffy dark tan head. A bit of over roasted aroma, but still good. Leans dry. Small bubbles. Not my favorite style, because I like sweeter beers, but still good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Stone. Dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Smooth creamy palate. Taste of semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. No after taste. The brewer only produced a small amount of this beer and estimated the ABV at 5.5 to 6% I hope Stone makes more of this damn good stout!
