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.

bottle as a gift! Clear ruby color with bubbly tan head that laced the glass. Pleasant malty caramel nose with a touch of citrusy hops and alcohol. The caramel malt comes out again in the flavor along with some cherry and grape candy. Hop bitterness lasts from start to finish. does exactly what it says on the tin!

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Bottle from Andonicoís Market. The bottle design is awesome- be sure to read the label. Aroma is complex and inviting, with malt, hops, and even citrus. Pours beautiful deep red with nice lacing and frothy head. Full syrupy body and medium carbonation fill the palate, followed by an impressively well-balanced and loud symphony of hops, bread, nuts, and a hint of chocolate. Alcohol hides in the background. Finish is long and detailed, with lingering hops and bitter grain. This is an impressive and thoroughly enjoyable beer. Itís complex, well-balanced, and even unpredictable. A personal favorite.

The folks at Stone Brewing Company certainly know how to market a beer AND make it taste great! I didn’t expect this beer to be so good simply because the bottle was so great to read. Well, it was good. Very good! It pours a nice dark reddish brown. It’s hoppy and smells pleasant. You can taste caramel and chocolate in it. The finish is slightly bitter yet very pleasant. This is one everyone must try at least once.

Dark amber colored and a white smooth head. Hoppy and malty aromas, with a strong and pleasant bitterness.

I loved it without opening the bottle. Beautiful complexion. Very dark amber, Complex sweet and somewhat fruity flavors, finishes nicely although this is not to say it is overly gentle. Two is my limit and then Iím feeling quite happy and ready to relax and watch whatever sport Iím in to on the tube.

Now, I was told before I had this beer that it was the "worst beer ever" and Iíd have to disagree. Not the best beer ever though, mainly because of itís aftertaste, but not bad. It is overrated at 4.08 though.

Complex brew...definite burnt malt/caramel flavor with a hoppy/citrus finish. Kind of a war of the taste buds, between the malt and hops. Unfortunately my only chance to try this beer was at a temperature slightly colder than 70 degrees or so. Iím going to re-rate this one once I get a nice cold sample.

This beer was great. The head was cream colored and abundant. Lacing was all the way around the glass. It had the color of mahogany wood: a very nice, rich amber. It was crystal clear and had a sweet aroma to it. The maltiness hits first and goes down smooth. The hops hit in the back of the mouth and leave a nice aftertaste. This is a great ale.
