COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The center of the Empyrean universe. Third Stone is dark in color but light on the taste buds. Smooth and sweet with just a hint of roasted flavor that goes down like a dream.

A sweet beer with nice malt tones. Very nice golden brown color with respectable head. Scent is not overly complicated, but quite appealing. The first few drinks are the best part of the beer as you try to decipher just what is going on. After those however, it can become a bit predictable and a little to sweet to drink more than one or two. I would certainly recommend trying one, but it is not a beer you will drink all evening.

Bottle. Mirky brown pour with beige head. Nutty old malt flavor. Some bread also, and a little burnt malt.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle; poured a darkish reddish brown with a smallish beer. Aroma nuts, caramel, cocoa with a bit of popcorn. Flavor was nutty, caramel and bready with a bit of non-buttered popcorn. A decent beer overall.

(on tap at Lazlos in downtown Lincoln). Pours a clear brown color. Medium off white head. Roasted malt aroma, and roasted malt/coffee flavor. Short duration. Slick texture. Soft carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 Smooth and easy, this beer gives exactly what it promises, a fairly flavorful ale that isn’t heavy. It’s nothing overly special, but if you’re in the mood for something casual, you could do worse. This brown ale has nutty and caramel flavors with an overall limited but well realized palate.

Poured dark brown with a beige head. Aromas of sweet malts, roasted nuts, and a little caramel. Flavor is nutty, slightly sweet, with a little chocolate in the finish.

This is pretty solid. Not too nutty or malty. Easy drinking but with a full flavor. Certainly a beer worthy of repeat-drinking.

heemer77 (5101) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 14, 2008
Dark brown body with hints of rust at the edges. The thin head is khaki colored. caramel and some milk chocolate are right up front in the initial nose. There is also a little bit of biscuit. I got strong notes of milk chocolate and pancakes in the initial tastes. As I drank more I began to note some earthy wood and hints of roast. A fairly good brown, but a little bland.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Pours a medium brown with very little head. Almost no aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and toffee. Has too little carbonation and tastes flat and watery. Not a bad beer, but not one I’d seek out again.

Light head and aroma. Decent flavor but nothing outstanding. Good maltiness. Pretty mediocre brown ale. Smooth with very little aftertaste.
