Bottiglia. Colore ambrato carico con un cappello di schiuma di 2 dita fine e persistente. Aroma maltato, caramello e luppoli. Al palato attacca in maniera dolce per essere poi sostituita dall’amaro dei luppoli. Corpo molto pieno e finale molto lungo. Ottima

Fresh can from Stone Germany. Pours a big dark chestnut with light khaki head. Roasted, nutty aromas with some herbs and spices. The palate is medium bodied, towards the sweet side but quite balanced. The finish is pretty long with an intense bitterness which only grows as the beer warms up to room temperature.

Pours dark ruby. Aroma: Toffee, caramel, earthy & grassy hops. Taste: More toffee and caramel, bready malt, bit of spice followed by a biiiiig bitterness. Overall: Now that its finally in Europe, I think its been a bit overhyped by our brethren overseas. Still a nice ale.
