3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2015; Pours Orange like copper, slightly clear, but still muddy with yeasts, and stable, off-white yellowish foamy head wtih spotty lace. Aroma: intense hop and malt aroma, pretty well balanced together: malts takes on white bread, toffee. caramel, some hazelnuts, hop aroma takes on citruses, pine, florals...Flavor: very similar to aroma: very malty flavor, with intense caramel, toffee, bread like note, with hint of hazelnuts, candy sugar, supported with huge hop flavor, which takes on fruits mentioned above. Finish is slighty dry, almost sticky, very bitter, bitterness lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium to full, texture is super smooth, almost creamy, carbonation is medium. Alcohol warmth is noticeable, oaky boozy. Amphibian betwen Barley wine and imperial ipa.

Bärnstensfärgad åt det röda hållet. Fyllig och tät öl. Sirap och toffee, men spritigheten slår igenom vilket jag inte gillar.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy reddish Amber with a smooth silky head. Aroma is malty. Very malty. Taste is malty and syrupy to the extreme up front and equally bitter on the back end. Smooth like a milkshake. Refined and raw power at the same time. I can't believe I haven't rated this before.

Bottle 650ml (2015). Served at cellar temperature. Pours a hazy copper. Head is beige; average sized and lasts wonderfully in the glass. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with notes of pine needles, hop resins, overripe nectarines, overripe apricots, sultana’s, lightly toasted malts, sticky caramel, hints of vinous alcohol and a touch of chocolate. Flavour is a strong resinous/grassy hop bitterness with lightly toasted malts, cooked toffee, overripe stone fruits (nectarines/apricots), orange rinds, raisins, spruce, bourbon (light) and strong rusty/resinous notes in the finish notes. Full bodied with light carbonation, an oily texture and a good length finish.

Medium sized tan head. Cloudy reddish amber body. Aroma is surprisingly light considering this is an 11% beer. Fruity on the nose. Very malty flavour, hoppy aftertaste. Quite alcoholic.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma with caramel, raisins, wood, pipe tobacco, and a little alcohol. I thought the flavor was surprisingly mild--smooth and malty with caramel and dark fruit flavors. Bittersweet finish with a lot of drying alcohol. Another fine effort from Stone.
