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.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 What a great looking bottle and colour! Dark reddish, amber colour with a nice foamy tan head. Very bitter, hoppy taste that leaves you with a kick for a little while. Fairly easy to drink. Overall, a unique beer with a unique marketing campaign. I liked it.

Pull this beer, pour it, and take your time. Taste the beer sip for sip as it slowly warms, the flavor adjusting greatly. From start to finish, this is a fantastic brew from Stone. Gorgeous dark red/brown color, and a beautiful brown head. Very well balanced, and gets even better as it warms. Make sure you take your time with this hearty beast, patience is well worth the beauty waiting in this brew when allowed to warm.

This is one of my all time favorite brews, great hop flavor, very smooth finish, the aftertaste does linger for a little while.

Reddish ruby brown with a medium head. Very smooth. Mouthfeel is substantial and feels great. Light carbonation. Some hints of juicy hops, ctirus, bitterness is evident but not overpowering.

Great, great beer. Clear, burnt amber pour with a finger-and-a-half worth of creamy head. Aroma was a very hearty mix of malt, hop, and a citrusy sweetness. The taste didn’t disappoint either--medium full to full body, quite malty-sweet with a touch of grapefruit and something else I can’t put my finger on when it first hits the tongue, giving way to a malty-bitter finish. If it has any shortcomings, it may be that the aftertaste lingers a touch too long. Other than that, its a strong, bitter, but very drinkable behemoth of a beer. One of my personal favorites.

Nice sweet aroma. Layered caramel flavour gives way to good hop flavour and bitterness. Great ale.

Pours nicely dark brown. Initial hint of spiced malt gives way to hops just a touch brighter than I prefer. Hilarious text on bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Full-bodied with molasses flavors rounded out by hints of brown sugar. Always a nice treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
