Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Wow! This is a big, bomb of a brew and Stone has absolutely hit it out of the park with this beer! Served out of a bottle with a nice dark brown color and light tan head. Aroma is really in your face with nuttiness/pecan, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, & whiskey. As the beer warms in the glass, the aroma REALLY starts to penetrate. Suprisingly (for Stone) the hops werent as forward with this brew. Flavor is initially sweet with a really nice bitter following. This is a full-bodied stout with a nice chewy consistency. Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite beers that Ive ever had. After trying it, I purchased a case to cellar. I look forward to trying this as it ages through the years!

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours a viscous looking dark brown. A very modest tan heads, subsides to a pin stripe ring. Even after some serious swishing the beer gets still quick.

Aroma: Dark chocolate. Pecan, light woodsmoke and lumberyard, caramel.

Taste: Dark chocolate dark roast coffee, pecan, spicy bitter hop, burnt caramel, alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little sticky with very active carbonation.

Overall: Big, flavorful, strong. Something you could definitely revisit in a year. I also anticipate the 100% barrel aged version to be something to look forward to.

Dark brown in color, hazy with a thin tan head. Big stout flavor and aroma with lots of extra wheat added. Nice gimmick beer sure got me to buy.
