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.

What can i say about this beer, other than its friggin awesome. This brew is really interesting and very aggressive. Kinda like an extremely malty ipa. Very hoppy like stone’s ipa, but also very thick and malty. I was kinda sceptical goin in but the hoppiness and maltiness actually pair together quite nice. Definitely one of my favorite beers. Keep it up Stone

Aroma of caramel roasted barley, toasted perfectly by hephaestus himself. Appearance matches the color of the bottle perfectly. Taste is near zenith. Palate is exceptional. Best beer tasted ever.

As per usual a very solid offering from Stone. Plenty of hops here and the drying bitterness drives a very long length. Dark fruits, old oak (i know it’s not oaked!) and bitter licorice. Quite serious really.

On tap at Craft Beer Co Amber to Reddish color with a thick two finger off white head. Aroma is malty with plenty of hops. Strong hop flavour balanced with great malty character with a good amount of bitterness.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with tan head. Malty, with full body. Surprisingly bitter on the finish. Overall very enjoyable.

Gachupines (848) - USA - MAY 16, 2014
Reddish color with a thick off white head. Aroma is pine, barley, and hops. Strong hop flavor with a nice, sweet malt backbone. Evenly balanced for how bitter it is at first. Wife: 4.1

Koskela (270) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
A dark malty aroma with cascade come from this brown ale with a bit of cream colored head. A chocolaty malty crisp taste with an aftertaste of bitter cascade hops if my pallet serves me correctly. Surprisingly a light/medium body come with this 7.2%. A great brew from stone. Theres no burn from the alcohol and the malt and bitter ratio is almost perfect.
