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.

Scent of malt, toffee, and yeast. Clear ruby colour. Bitter front with notes of nuts, roasted malt, toffee, and hops. Quite strong, but equally tasty.

Nice, classic, American strong ale with a strong hop presence. Dark brown pour from bomber, malty front, hoppy finish.

Pours a deep clear amber reddish color with white head. Floral notes, some caramel malt, a little spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some malt.

Yorker (1749) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
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.

An old Stone classic. Pours a deep, copper with a tan head. Aromas are at first malty sweetness, some honey, floral hops, with a bit of spice and earth. Taste is mostly dominated by the heavy hopping. With a lil bitter finish and a relatively bright mouthfeel. Almost expect/hoped for a bigger richer body. American strong, hoppy brew.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a Best By date of 11/17/2014. Aroma is sweet with some nuttiness, moderate toasted bread, caramel and toffee. Moderate hop notes with pine resin and grapefruit. Light fruit esters. Pours a cloudy, copper, burnt amber with some brown hues and a small, light tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges. Medium light lacing and medium legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with some caramel and toasted bread with a light nuttiness. Light toffee notes as well. Moderately strong to strong bitterness. Medium light hop flavor, mostly pine resin but also some grapefruit. Some light alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but way maltier than the hoppy beers I prefer to drink. Malt profile isn’t too bad, and the hops work with it well. Is suppose for what it is, its pretty nice.

i like big beers, and Stone is arguably my favorite brewer, but this one is an ever so slight miss for me, if only by Stone’s lofty standards. the culmination of the parts come out as a touch harsh to my tastebuds. Try the double bastard or the oaked AB, which are both excellent, but this is still some pretty good stuff...just not AS good "

Pours a very nice reddish auburn color with decent lacing. Smells slightly sweet and malty, kind of like maple. Tastes very malty and sweet. A good beer from stone, but nothing too special here.

From a bottle. Pours dark copper with trace of white head and light carbonation. Faint malty aroma, with an initial malt sweetness followed on by piney hops bite. Bitter lingering finish.

There was quite a bit of smoke with this beer. The beer poured a red amber with a thick khaki head that left a lot of lacing. The aroma is strong hops, slight sweet caramel, grass, and citrus. The taste is very bitter as imagined. It has a grassy, almost chewy texture to it. I also pick up some slight alcohol. I also pick up an oak aftertaste.
