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.

I went to the Stone last weekend and sampled their beers. Well worth the visit for anyone visiting North County San Diego. The staff was very friendly and showed us the entire facility. This is a great beer. I bought a case!

Bawelt (465) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 29, 2016
Bue en pression : surnotee. Nez léger caramel, fond houblonné, léger herbal. Mais faut les chercher... Bouche très légère, quasiment insipide... Un fond caramel, de légères notes agrumes et herbales. Longueur amère. Bof.

BlazerT (444) - POLAND - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Dirty brown with medium, light brown head. Medicare head retention and lacing. Caramel and spicy aromas with some strong, dirty citrus and piney character, also some tea-like aromas. Taste is very bitter from the beginning (strong grapefruit involvement), pretty shitty and dirty bitterness. Zero neither tropical fruits nor floral accents. Medium body, creamy/oily texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter, bitter and bitter. In general hard to say, but this beer will devastate your tongue with high bitterness. In my opinion this one is not in my top ten, but interesting.

Ratto (123) - - JUN 24, 2016
Bottled on 09/11/15. Aroma malty, fruity. Taste bread crust, caramel, strong grapefruity bitterness. Balance is on the bitter side, maybe too old already? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Linnet (1604) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2016
Caramel, resin, butterscotch, alcohol, whisper of coffee, some raisin, grapefruit, powerful. Ruby colour, small beige head, lacing. Big bite, medium/heavy sweetness, lightly salty, ABV well integrated, some earthy dark fruit. Medium body, small lively bubbles, heavy bitter finish. Are Stone even Capable of making anything but a world class brew?
