*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 11-16-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

*This is the 11th Anniversary with Chinook.*

I had this during the Stone 11th Anniversary event in Sept. I don't remember if this was on-tap or cask. And I assume the alcohol was the same. Mostly from my notes:

Very, very dark brown with a nice amount of foam and great lacing/retention.

Aroma is hoppy, pine/citrus but dark and smokey, very interesting. Some ash but not in a bad way, it works well.

Taste is very weird, different but tasty (I know, very vague). Big malt profile but hoppy as well. Some caramel and herb qualities. I remember this one being much like a tea bag, very herbal and "green", bold and daring. You could definitely taste the fresh hops. A bit of bitterness, just like the regular 11th.

Drinkability was very good. Doesn't really feel like a big heavy beer. One of the most unique beers I had in the festival and most unique beers up to this day.
