Stone Brewing Co. released its newest beer, Stone 15th Anniversary Escondidian Imperial Black IPA, commemorating the brewery’s 15 years in business. "Stone 15th Anniversary Escondidian Imperial Black IPA pours thick and opaque, with a deep brown head of foam," says Brewmaster Mitch Steele. "Intense herbal and piney hops are followed by roasted malt notes redolent of coffee, anise and cocoa, all coming together to form one of the darkest, hoppiest and most colossal beers we've ever brewed." The brew has 10.8 percent alcohol by volume and comes in 22-ounce bottles, on draft and in a limited number of 3-liter bottles.
