COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
Pours brown with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, with just a bit malty sweetness. Taste is bitter, aromatic, flowery, with just enough body to make this beer . . well, a very good bastard

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany colour with a big frothy head. Huge floral hop aroma. Nice thick mouthfeel. Great heavily hopped malt taste. If you like a good hop bite and lingering hop aftertaste this is a good one

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2005
NIce brown pour with a medium off white head to it. Nice nutty caramely smell that is also present in the taste nice syrupy feel to it. It’s like a thick brown ale real nice.

this is an overly-hopped barley wine, bottle thanks to crosling. dry-hopped with something west coast, maybe centennial? just like the description it’s aggressive with grapefruit everywhere and piney resins dominating the mouthfeel. tons of residual bitterness to counteract a lot of malt--maybe a bit too bitter to drink all that often....

bsawatzky (153) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 poured a gorgous dark amber/red with thick creamy head. smelled hoppy and sweet with citrus, malt and fruit aromas. tasted much the same. strong bite, nice and spicey from the hops with a rich malty depth. a great ale.

growing up a (stone) throw away and having family involved in the brewing process at stone has left me a little biased but ill try, 22oz bottle, dark red with 1/4 inch yellow head, malt-alco-sweet smell, big bite leaves your tastebuds confused for a half second then you realize it just tastes like a damn good ale, hope i did ok.
