MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee allusions, charred wood and bitter hop resins coalesce in this slender dark ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the dark brown.
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout.
-This is very flavorful for a 4% brew!
-Hops also develop citrusy and floral components.
-This and their Go To IPA are excellent reasons to get to know their lower gravity lineup more often.

On tap at Stone Liberty Station.

Black-brown color with an off-white head. Puckeringly dry hoppy; light bodies, almost watery with a light roast character. Roasty dry hop aroma. Quite flavorful for a session-type ale.

4.9% tap pour at Stone Liberty Station into a tall tulip glass where it exhibits a dark body that has thin mahogany edges and supports a tan head of foam that leaves behind sheet lacing. The aroma is nice and roasty with dark roasted malts mixing with pine hops and a thin citrus hop note. The taste is similar with dark roasted malts, pine hops and a touch of citrus hops that adds a pleasing depth to the sessionable brew. It comes across fresh and snappy and the hops create a dangerously sessionableness out of the experience. Loved it.

Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and a little yeast. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a sour liqourice weak acid palate.

Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear dark brown beer with a medium sized, beige head. Aroma of licorice, West Coast and roast. Flavour is mildly bitter with sweet roasty touches. Nice, sessionable brew.

So roasty it is almost burnt. Strong metal/earthy finish but I don’t get much flavor. Either palate fatigue or it is too strong for me.

(Draught) clear medium brown, creamy tan head. Nose is quite citrusy and zesty, rye, chocolate malt, certainly doesn’t smell mild. Taste is a little dirty or earthy, chocolate malt, cereal grain, like it overall but the palate finish kills it a bit.

Growler. Black pour, with a large light tan head and sticky lacing. Wow blown away by such a resinous hoppy aroma for such a light beer. Dry roast, grapefruit, very hoppy, bitter, and notes of cocoa. Super flavorful for such a low abv. Body is light, I could chug this. Very good.

Tap @ Stone Oceanside. Black pour with a frothy off-white head. Grapefruit, pine, hop bitterness and light chocolate roast in the aroma. Taste is citrus and pine with moderate hop bitterness and some roast. Dry and clean mouthfeel. Excellent.
