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.

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 (284) - 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.

Nice a dark brown with a white foamy head. This is definitely a strong ale, but quite nicely balanced IMHO. A nice roasted pine sense, not hoppy enough to remind me of an IPA...I read that comment and don’t understand it This has a nice medium body with a bit of a sticky feel and ending with a nice bitter touch. This would be an excellent addition to any meal and would definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys a nice craft. This would work almost anywhere.

Poured into tulip, a hazy brown with small white head that resided quickly. Aroma was citrus hops and caramel and toffee of the malts. Taste was same but with an alcohol note. Finish was a mix of the malts and citrus with the warming of the alcohol. Nicely done.
