    Pours dark chocolate brown that lets in a peep of brown light at the bottom. Tan head is thick and long-lasting. Aroma delivers strong woody hop, whisky, roasted malt and bourbon notes. Quite promising. Flavor ramps everything up a notch, especially the whisky, and tosses in a snip of chocolate. Mouthfeel features firm body and brisk effervescence, and leaves a woody and slightly smoky finish. Sublimely stygian.

    Solidly in the "glad I tried it, but a one-timer" catergory. Three times as much and a step back from the awesome SSR base beer. VERY nice, but the hops definitely take a back seat to the barrel...making this a spicy, boozy, slightly sweet (and much stronger) black IPA. The bigger Stone 15 held up better in the barrels, but this was still a treat.
