COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

willisread (492) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 14, 2015
Old rating. Bomber from Old Town. Pours a nice clear amber with a medium-sized beige head. Citrus, pine, caramel, toffee, molasses aromas present on the nose. Medium body with bitter overtones and a hint of sweetness of the palate. Nice carbonation. Nice big dry bitter finish. A classic from Stone.

On tap at Beertown, Waterloo. Stone! At Beertown! Earthy and lightly citrus aroma. Earthy, smoky, caramel, intensly bitter. Light citrus taste too. Boozy and bitter finish.

Bij Dora en Kai, warm maar lekker. Ruikt kruidig, smaakt lekker bitter. Mooi donkerrood en prima schuin laagje

darthmoore (16) - Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours a beautiful dark mahogany color. Nice creamy head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, apple, tobacco and syrup. Tastes of mass amounts of caramel balanced by the hops. Everything is working in concert. Definitely well crafted. Finish is abrupt and astringent. A wonderful beer indeed.

Savage_Night (36) - California, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours a nice Amber hue with a frothy white head. Head retention is excellent. Aroma (the stench of cigarettes just filled the pub so I really canít make out many aromas) citrus, bitterness, slight pine and maybe some orange. Taste of malt, hop bitterness , pine, citrus, spice, slight sourness and herbs. Amazing as always. Still looking forward to their pale ale 2.0. Canít wait for that one.

kajser27 (153) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
Deep ruby colored, small beige head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee and some but not too strong citrusy hops. Taste medium sweet caramel, toffee, a bit toasty malt, some dark fruits, moderately citrus hoppy. Dry, quite bitter finish. Well hidden alcohol. Medium to full bodied, syrupy.

IPagan5 (101) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Awesome brew excellent hop pine citrus aroma, big hop character, nice malty, only reason didnít give t aste a perfect is a little too much caramel for me. Others may like it more...just my two pennies, other than that excellent beer.

FknClownshoes (26) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours a dark cherry red , slightly cloudy with a nice dense tan head. Excellent lacing and head retention. Reeks of hops, with some cereal grain style malts going on, smells sticky (toffee). Taste is big and bold hops balanced out by the candy/caramel malts, some underlying stone fruit flavors. The bitterness is unrelenting, which is fine by me!

tfontana (53) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2015
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 Bottle from Market Basket, Epping NH. Aroma is mostly hoppy with slight basement smell Appearance is beautiful reddish amber with large, persistent, off white, foamy head with excellent lacing. Taste is more bitter than sweet, owing to the hops, and is a hair more hoppy than I tend to like but itís not over the edge. Palate is medium bodied with light carbonation noted at the tip of the tongue. Pleasant long finish.
