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.

une bière pour homme sans compromis, un gout qui persiste en bouche et un prix très compétitif I want more of this!!

650ml bottle. Dark brown. Awesomely bitter. Strong and solid. The style isn’t particularly something i cant get enough of or anything but i liked it a lot. I’ll dig more of Stone thats for damn sure.

Very drinkable beer. Great and unique mix. Like a strong IPA with some light smoked malt, citrus hops and all matched well. Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Basically a slightly dark IPA with some smoke. Very sessionable for what it is. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at Tap House Grill, Seattle. Hefty and hoppy ale with citric and salty notes. Full bodied and oily with long bitter finish. Doesn’t get much better than this.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2014
650 ml bottle (enjoy by date 7/8/14) poured into shaker. Remarkable garnet color with a generous dense foam cap that exhibits excellent retention and lacing. Strong aroma of caramel, pine and grapefruit. Flavor follows suit, with short-lived malty sweetness giving way to a lingering resinous bitter finish. Feels downright creamy on the palate. While this isn’t my favorite Stone offering, it’s still a great beer.

swesson (188) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
A very powerful, majestically bold ale! Poured from a bomber. Beautiful ruby red body. Creamy, off-white head. Smells of hops and malt. Tastes of caramel and big hops! A fantastic balance of hops and malt. Almost perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) I had a few beers by the maker now and this seems like a lower rung beer thats aimed for tap use. not very amazing and didn’t impress me. don’t for a second think its bad its still a great brew but not amazing and for these reasons worth the try.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
This beer has it all. With a unbreakable malt backbone of caramel, molasses and roastyness, and then the power and bitterness of the hops balance it all together. The malt and the hops are fighting each other but they are equally matched. Big body on it, but it was so good I could drink more than one.

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.
