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.

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 isnít my favorite Stone offering, itís still a great beer.

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 didnít impress me. donít 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 stoneís 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

JonLaRue (13) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2014
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.

Stew41 (1725) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2014
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 itís 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 (853) - 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
