Poured into a 4oz taster glass at Stone. Beer poured with no head, and no signs of carbonation. Looked similar to prune juice. Smelled like prunes, raisins, molasses, and brown sugar. Taste was just over the top raisin. I got very little carbonation on my tongue, the beer was very sweet (and i do care for my scotch ales to be cloying with molasses), but the raisin just dominated this beer. It tasted like someone was playing a trick on me. I personally hate raisins, I think someone who is fond of the little buggers might enjoy this beer a little, I just found it to be vile. But at $0.50 an ounce, I threw the rest back like a shot as to not be rude and moved on to other fine offerings.

On tap at Stone Pilot tasting. Brownish red in appearance. Very yummy smells of sweet malt and earthiness. Very smooth and rich mouthfeel. Sweet malt, oak, and peat. Good long tasting finish. Loved this beer for sure.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
Well of course mine would be the 3rd rating after these two jokers. Pours ruddy brown with burgundy highlights and a small off white head. Smells sweet and rich with some dark ripe fruits. Tastes rich and sweet malty with some dark fruits. Overall sweet and fruity. Full body, good carbonation.

On tap at Stone. My favorite of the new beers. Dark amber brown color. Sweet and malty. A hint of smokiness. Very good.

1st rating, on tap at the world bistro today with wetherel, dr.bill, and later doubleo. Probably my favorite of the 5 pilot brews. Pours reddish brown with no head. Nose is sweet, peaty, malty and overall quite nice. The taste sweet, rich, peaty and quite malty. Low carbonation but excellent flavor.
