A: Brown/Amber Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head, Great Lacing S: Floral, Brown Sugar, Malty, Bready T: Floral, Malty, Bready, Mild Maple M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter, Dry Overall, this beer comes off like a solid pale, IPA...as opposed to a brown ale. Solid but will burn you out somewhat.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2013
P: Beautiful pour. Dark murky wake of brown swamp water with a multitude of floaters. Dense frothy khaki head that jiggles like pudding. Great retention and intricate lacing. S: Sweet syrup, molasses, brown sugar, maple, toasted toffee and caramel, spicy hops, clove, trash bag funk. Dark fruits, timid smoke, traces of smoldered wood chips. Spices are tingling my nose. T/M: Huge taste of ground spices cooked in molasses to the point of burning. Burnt toffee, grains and wood gives off the signature Stone smoked presence. Earthy and spiced hops deliver a rustic flare. Dark fruits soaked in spiced rum and brown sugar. Busquity yeast and hidden funkiness in the background. Syrupy body with a gentle massage of bubbly carbonation. Finishes dry and earthy. Touches of oxidation. O: I was worried that this would be bad from the reviews I read since it was old but I was really impressed. I loved the rugged flavors and spice profile against the sugary sweetness. This could be a meal in a glass. The hop profile was nice and complimenting and not overly bitter. I wish I could have tried this fresh.

Pours a hazy brown with some red tones and a thick foam.. Odor smells of molasses with slight hop. Upon sipping this brew my mouth began an engagement with a metamorphosis of serious hops, molasses, and a bit of caramel. Damn good.

Rather dry and older hops. Bottle held for me in a basement. Maybe better absolutely fresh. Quaffable.

Mora2000 (6050) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Medium amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of pine and toffee with some strong wintergreen notes. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of toffee, resinous pine and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Ungstrup (30737) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2013

CloakedDagger (1190) - - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours amber with a slight haze and a creamy and lacing off-white head. Roasty, caramellish nose, a whiff of licorice. Medium body, caramel, biscuity malts, subtle roast and a rather subdued bitterness. Those 81 IBU’s are hard to detect! Pleasant if unspectacular. 260713

Not a favorite. Nice darl pour. Aroma is muted anise. Taste is overly balanced to the botter.not for me.
