The beer is wall to wall black with a thick and creamy light brown head. I’m getting pineapple, tangerines and grapefruit rind up front. Lurking beneath the hops, there’s a foundation of fudge with touches of roast and smoke. On the downside, there’s also a little paint thinner and booze at the edges, but it wouldn’t be a Stone beer without some rough edges. The taste has a lot of sweetness followed up by a good bitter bite. It starts out with fudgy chocolate cake mixed with pineapple-citric hop oil. Some roast and smoke chimes in, filling out the malt flavor, and it ends with mild smoke and hop bitterness. The bitterness is strong but fairly smooth. However, there’s some more booze pushing through, as well. It’s an undercooked chocolate rum cake with tangerine pith icing. Very fun to drink. It’s creamy and smooth even as it smolders with pleasant bitterness and unpleasant booze. To be fair, it’s getting away with some harshness by throwing in a whole bunch of lovely dry-hop delicacy.
With Audrie at Brass Tap on the patio, Coral Springs, pours a deep black pour with a beige head. Nose is roasted malt with citrus . Taste is roasted malt with citrus and softer pine and resin....silky and smooth on the palate. Finishes on the same tasting notes .

Jag har så många öl att betygsätta avyer en stor åldrig öldrinkning med min goda vän Jesse, att jag inte har tid att betygsätta alla dessa och i många fall hade för öl att minnas storheten i dessa öl. Till ära för mitt svenska arv, jag skickar detta på svenska för alla recensioner från den dagen. Tack Gud för god öl !!

Black pour with a thick, caramel coloured head. Looks the business. Roasty, dark chocolate, toffee, pine aromas. Taste is smooth, a little creamy, dark chocolate, dark malt, a little roasty and coffee bitterness at first, with a bit of pine as well.
