On tap at brewery. Black with a short lived creamy tan head. Bitter sweet chocolate, coffee, and citrus aroma. Kick you in the teeth coffee grounds taste up front followed by a bitter bite and finishing with light chocolate covered citrus flavors and a lingering dry bitterness. Not bad.

Draft at Stone brewery. Almost black pour, tan head. Pine, lots of espresso bean, light roastiness, hoppy bitterness, and dry overall. Good.

markwise (4898) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
On draft at Freshcraft. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is rosted malts, coffee, and big hoppy, piney bitterness. Flavor is similar- the roasted malts and big coffee presence is there, but the piney hops overcome any effort by the coffee to allow balance. Light to medium in body and overwhelmingly hoppy.

Draft. Great beer! Chocolate, coffee, spices and some herbal hops. Less bitter than I was expecting. I would gladly drink this again.

Chocolate brown with a light off-white head. Chocolate aroma. Roasty with espresso undertones and a solid hop backbone.

L.A. Beer Week 2012 at Stone-Pasadena. Coffee in the nose. Not roasty but not green either. That taste doesn’t follow through to the taste and the bitterness level is lower than usual Stone standards. A fun twist on the SSR.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft. Dark brown. Big creamy beige head, lasting. Expresso, chocolate, hops. Smooth bitter finish. Great coffee character and definitely doesnt take a backseat. I really enjoy beers that use coffee well and this is a winner. Rich and flavorful.

Quite a unique experience, like a hoppy espresso ale, funky brownie flavor, touch of brown sugar, low carbonation. Nice kick from the caffeine/hop combo @.@

Tap Stone O’Side. Black pour with a ring of tan foam. Aroma is rich expresso mixed with sharp pine and roasted malt. Taste is expresso, resinous pine, bitterness, and roast. Clean, almost creamy mouthfeel. Excellent.

Darker than the regular Sublime, this beer exudes more espresso than that from the dark malts. This pairs well with the citrus hops. Flavor is a tad more astringent but the black malts still come out strong and the hop bitterness balances well.
