I had 3 bottles of the Stone 11th Anniversary this weekend. Rinkrat pretty much summed it up ! Beeradvocate.com has it classified as an American Strong Ale, but to me it's more of a "Black IPA" if you will. Very hoppy and citrusy, but at the same time quite mellow yet very complex. It's safe to say that this is the most filling beer I have ever had. It was pretty difficult to put down 2 in one sitting, but I managed.
It also gives an interesting buzz as well. Not the typical beer buzz that I am accustomed to. Anybody else get this too ?
All in all, another stellar brew from the wondrous Stone. The 10th is still my favorite though.
