Awesome strong ale with toffee notes and enough hops to carry the malt. Can actually taste the alcohol which gave the finish a slight medicinal taste

Hops and coffee beans make for a complex beer with a surprisingly refreshing quality typically unfound in double IPAs or beers weighing in at 11% ABV.

Lots of coffee and chocolate, good balance. Delicious

You can only get this in a bastard box. Love these Stone Bastard packs during winter time. Toasted espresso coffee notes with each initial sip followed by an oakiness balanced by that familiar bastard bitterness and a toasty malty backbone w/o being sweet. Awesome stuff! profile - December 30, 2015

Ruby in color with a thin off white head. Has a nice dark roasted espresso aroma followed by a strong boozy aroma. Can tell this beer packs a punch. Medium in body has a very soft mouthfeel. Intense coffee flavors at the forward followed by some roasted chocolatey notes and then a boozy warming finish. Very very enjoyable would definitely have again.

Far too strong espresso flavor my enjoyment. But it's definitely well-made.
