Poured a brown with reddish tint to the edges, the head was frothy and beige. Aroma was nice cascade hops and subtle malts. Nice blend of malts, hints of chocolate and fresh hops that linger through the finish.

A bit pricey for what you get, but a typical strong ale here that I had to go to CO to get.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013.03.05 - Bear Republic / Fat Head’s / Stone TBA - 12oz bottle in pint glass. Vintage 2012.
Aroma: ver nice, hops tempered by something... a bit spicy a bit malty.
Appearance: Pours around 19-20 on SRM scale. Deep caramel brown. Ridiculous head, almost half the glass. Sticky and foamy head/carbonation.
Taste: Hops clearly there but very well balanced with sweet spiciness. Caramel taste and molasses. Not as roasty or chocolatey as most American Brown Ales. Not as hoppy as, say, Brekles Brown. Nice.
Aroma 7/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 3/5, Overall 15/20

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz (STONE) bottle. Vintage 2012. Bottled 02/12. Pours light brown color, light khaki colored fizz. Aroma of brown sugary malts. Toasted oat cereal scent. Light chocolate and even some earth in the nose. Dry flavor. Some toasted malts along with some earthy hops. Tastes of the woods. Smells better than the dry flavor of the medium bodied beer. Its a tick...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle, it’s a deep, cloudy orange color. A nice 1 inch tan, creamy head forms. Aroma is distinctly hops, caramel and citrus. Moderate lacing, but not as sticky as I would have suspected. Medium body and medium-soft carbonation. Nice, but not memorable. That said, I’d welcome another glass any time.

Bottle. Hazy dark brown liquid with small light tan head. Aroma of raw sugar, pine, spices, biscuit, toffee, dark fruit and bread. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of raw sugar, pine, biscuit and toffee. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, though a bit boring.
