Grade: B+

5/20/2010: Yet another Great Divide beer. This time My tall ginger friend Kevin was not responsible for me getting this beer. I bought it at Vintage Estate last week. I also ended up finding some 2008 Stone RIS, and 2002 12th Anniversary Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout on his shelves. I couldn’t help myself and ended up buying about a half dozen of each.

Its a shame they are retiring this beer because I think its pretty damn good. It smells like a light roasted coffee, with some caramel splashed in. The taste is a very smooth roast coffee flavor, and hops actually make a little bit of an appearance also. Mouthfeel is medium, but very smooth, and perfectly carbonated. Grab up a couple before they retire it for good!

Picture of the day: 6 eipc wheel of fortune fails.
