Bottle - Black pour with decent head. Aroma of hops and toasted grain. Flavor is bitter from hops and then bitter from the roasty toasty malts, hint of citrus. Good mouthfeel and carbonation.

22oz bomber. Pours a rich dark brown/black color with a half finger of fluffy tan head. Massive aroma of piney hops, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is strong piney hops up front, followed by rich roasted coffee notes, and dark chocolate. I love this beer!!

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Dark brown-black and opaque, a little wine, a little roast and coke aroma, Bitter, malty, very bitter and a little coffee taste. Full body, dry finish. Tasty.

This beer is absolutely amazing. At first pour I had my doubts as it didnít have the best smell, but donít judge this beer on that alone. What it lacks there it gains in itís appearance and taste. Overall amazing. I may have my new favorite beer.

Awesome. Pours black. Lots of aroma here: notes of toasty malts, faint chocolate, faint smoke, woody, and slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet, malty, toasty, bitter pine, nutty, and faint caramel. Complex. It really develops and begs for another taste. Finish lingers just slightly but really nice. Itís a mind bender... enjoy.

This is the GOAT! It's bold but subtle regarding Hoppiness and ABV%. It plays tricks on my mind because its a DIPA, but it looks like a stinking stout. I simply adore this beer. It's also the reason I love craftbeer, Stone Sublime was my first.
---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone so go have a DIPA!

Bomber pour to pint; with a meal- pork loin and sweet potatoes. I have had this several times but did not rate it. I always enjoyed it. Very persistent foamy head; cola black color. Roasted maltiness with a bit of smoke and sweetness. Very good.

Pours black with a medium tan head and some lacing. Aroma is a lot of pine and citrus notes with chocolate and coffee mixed in. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, milk chocolate, coffee, grapefruit and citrus with piney hops. Medium body with medium carbonation and a nice bitter finish. Very good brew.
