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 brown with a slight off-white head that hangs around for awhile and leaves a good deal of lacing. The aroma is heavy on the piney hops and the caramel malt. The flavor is very hoppy and high in alcohol.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark reddish amber with an off-white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are pine, resin, nuts, and caramel - with a bitter finish.

Dark brown in the glass. Smells spicy, bubblegum, wood, toast. Taste is much more intimidating -- extremely dark. Burnt toast, roasted nuts, hint of cream, scorched caramel. Very dry finish. Confrontational.

Excellent. Bottle from Stone Sampler bought at Father and Sons. Pours hazy brown into a snifter. Bold caramel and malty aroma. Taste is huge. This is a great beer from a great brewery

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through bloviating. :)

Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, bread, citrus, fruit and hops. Taste is heavy sweet leading to a well balanced hoppy finish. Pretty awesome.

Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
From a 650ml bottle on 13/7/2014 (shared with Butz). Pours a cloudy deep brown with a biggish off white head. Has a relatively subtle malty aroma featuring caramel and toffee. However, there’s nothing subtle about the flavour which is massive, rich, complex and impressive. This is a real all rounder in terms of character. There’s a ton of malt with caramel, butterscotch, toffee and toast, along with some spicy rye, some sweet citrus and dark fruit, peel, and bog load of big resiny, bitter hops to finish it off. Has a creamy texture and average carbonation. This actually tastes bigger than 7.2%. A magnificent beer.

bigda83 (130) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a reddish brown, hazy, and had a small khaki head. Aroma is very malty and sweet smelling. Some citrus fruit hops in the background as well. Taste is caramel, bread, roasted grains, grapefruit, and some lemon. Full body and good carb. Too much malts for me, but overall decent brew.

Look: pours a cloudy light brown or dark red. Head is thick and looks like something from a soda. Smell: fruity citrus aroma. Very sweet smell like a barleywine. Makes my mouth water. Dark fruit. Taste: bitter up front. Apples and other dark fruit. Lots of alcohol. Slight malt after taste. Feel: thick film on the mouth. Very dry. Medium to carbonation Overall: ok, not as fruity as I like. Definitely a stone beer. Similar to a hoppy barleywine.
