Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a thick beige ring of tight foam.
Aroma: Coconut, bubble gum, dates, yogurt covered raisins, and lightly roasted malt.
Taste: Dark cherry, wood, bread crust, light bubble gum, chocolate that finishes with slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Thin, silky, with very modest carbonation.
Overall: Simply amazing. I remember this beer being a tad hot, and not nearly as complex as it is now, four years later. I really lucked out being at the right place at the right time. Stone Brewing rocks so hard, offering their cellar archives for growler fill. I can’t think of any other craft brewery that does that on a regular basis. What a treat!!
