Bottle from McHughs. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Aroma is coffee, pine hop, earth, vanilla, slight clove, Christmas spice in there. Flavour is a creamy coffee with some chocolate biscuits caramel earth sweetness. Drying coffee finish. Unusual. matts63 (3) - Alpharetta, GEORGIA - NOV 4, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass. Deep golden color with light lacing. Aroma is coffee and chocolate (as one would expect) I was surprised to like this as much as I did. Coffee and chocolate flavor throughout with a slight hoppy bite. Bitterness lingers . 9% is a surprise as well . More drinkable and enjoyable than I thought. Stone continues to deliver.

Copper pour with a tall, off-white head.
Interesting aroma, coffee, cocoa, orange marmalade and vanilla.
Interesting flavor too.First is a dry, dark roast coffee and hop bitterness. Finishes with hoppy bitterness like an IPA.

Aroma: Fruity hops, malty, sweet, light sweet coffee.
Appearance: Hazy golden color. Medium, white head.
Taste: Medium sweet, fruity hops, light sweet coffee, light bitter.
Palate: Full body. Light bitter finish.
Overall: Good, heavier, malty DIPA, touch of coffee.
Standard longneck, faux painted label with the usual small-print blather from the Stone Dude. Clear, intense bronze pour, with a dissipating oatmeal colored head. Earthy, fruity, coffeeish-acidic carob aroma. Frothy milk chocolate up front, sturdy bittering takes a backseat initially but then emerges over time. Acidic, somewhat buffered. The beer then moves on to a coldbrew/blonde coffee cast. Bittersweet finish. Interesting, offbeat, warming. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Cerveza color ámbar corona de espuma de burbujas compactas de baja retención. Al aroma se perciben las notas a café y un sutil amargor así como cacao. Al paladar suave, fácil y ligera para beber. Se perciben notas a café amargo inmediatamente, para ser opacadas por un amargor que perdura en el retrogusto. Excelente cerveza

Pours brown with a beige head, aroma of chocolate, coffee, chilli, tangerine, flavor is slightly bitter with coffee, green coffee, cocoa, tangerine, medium bodied, nice jbethea (69) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2017
Clear red brown. nose is glazed doughnuts, Sweet malty backbone offset by cacao and finishes off with a relatively mild hop presence. Its not bad, but not nearly as good as most of what stone puts out there. I don't love the mocha- we can do better things with the IPA. Leave mocha to the stouts n porters. 9 % is heavy for a beer ya don't love. Could be toned down a bit IMO. CObiased (543) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2017
12oz bottle - it pours a clear almost amber orange with thick fluffy off white home. A mixed aroma of goodness like pine, citrus, sweet malt and a whiff of chocolate. Interesting flavors...the initial taste is pine sap and citrus zest then notes of mocha arrive with a meld of smooth chocolate and a hint of coffee. Delicious and unique. danjs5 (296) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 A great beer with hints of coffee, chocolate nuts, hops, citrus and honey. Although a relatively mainstream gimmicky experience, it is able to pull it off with good flavours. Plenty of sweetness balance.
