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.

Thanks to a77cj7 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours a medium brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is great. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee as well as some toffee, caramel and nuttyness. The flavor is not quite as good as the smell, but it is still very nice. I get chocolate, hazelbut, toffee and caramel. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice English-style brown ale.

12oz shorty bottle. Deep, opaque stained-glass red/brown. Thin off white head laces the glass. Deep, smooth chocolate, caramel, toffee notes. Medium bodied, a pretty true to style example. Rich, sweet, chocolate tones. Somewhat nutty. Refreshing. Well executed.

riversideAK (5827) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Nose is roasty with a good deal of coffee on this brown ale and a slight acidity as well. Pours dark brown, no head or lace. The flavor is roasty and full of coffee, light chocolate sweetness and a touch of hop/coffee acidity in the finish. Somewhat unique in its coffee notes, and seemingly roastier than many browns. Light bodied with a easy crisp finish.

Pours a dark mahongony with a huge head, almost no lacing. Strong coffee malt nose. Very roasted malt flavor that finishes with the same coffee flavor. Medium body, medium carbonation, and a crisp finish. Very enjoyable.

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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 Smooth and easy, this beer gives exactly what it promises, a fairly flavorful ale that isnít heavy. Itís nothing overly special, but if youíre 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.
