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.

It has a dark reddish-brown collor with a tan head that leaves some beautiful lacing, quite attractive. Itís scent is a compination of piney and somewhat floral hops with a caramel sweetness with some brown sugar and a very slight maple scent. The taste follows the nose with two contradictions of piney floral hops and a caramel malt living together in pure harmony. The beerís palate is quite good itís very smooth, not quite as thick as Iíd like but very good. All in all this is an excellent beer that Iím glad I can get it anytime I want.

It smells sweet of caramel malts and a little bit of resiny hop in the back. It pours a dark amber body with a light tan head that leaves behind ridiculous lacing. It tastes somewhat sweet with a bit of a bitter bite in the back. It is smooth almost too smooth for a beer of this size. Overall I love this beer, I love Stone Brewing. This is a great beer that is popular in the craft beer crowd for a reason. I cant really find anything offputting in this beer besides that it will get you too drunk too quick.

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

Pours almost a dark maple color with a thin beige head.. tons of lacing.. woodsy, pine, soap aromas.. flavor follows with some grapefruit as well... strong hoppy aftertaste that definitely sits and lingers on the back of the tongue.

All very good, except for the excessive hops. Too much of a bitter aftertaste, but overall excellent. Would recommend to anyone who likes strong ales.

Mumpu (46) - USA - MAY 15, 2006
One of the very few beers where the presentation and the setup impact the experience. Pours rich brown with a dark tan head. Complex flavor opens with a touch of malt sweetness and follows with aroma (but not the bitterness... I donít understand all the "this is so bitter" comments) of hops, dried fruit, citrus notes, and some nuts (almonds?). Coffee/chocolate tones are largely nonexistent. A delightful beer to enjoy in good company with food and conversation.

Bottle. The Rover, Gothenburg. Surprisingly red colour with a small off-white head. Aroma: complex, sweet, dark. Flavor: Hops, sweet and toasted malt, fruits, alcohol, caramel. Maybe a bit too much alcohol in the taste.

Wow is all you can say about this beer. I tried with two of my homebrew buddies and we are still trying to figure out what hops they are using. Course hop nose and spicy. This beer is not for the faint at heart but if you are brave and arrogant give this beer a try.
