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.

Cola brown pour with a medium dirty white head. Aroma was heavy crystal malt. Flavor had strong caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt. A little too sweet. Good amount of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with small beige head. Aroma is biscuity and slightly sweet. Flavor is good, nuts and caramel, fairly sweet, and very smooth. Pretty good but not outstanding.

Nice smooth beer with medium to little head. Had a pleasant scent, and a very unique flavor. Goes down easy (sometime too easy) and has a coco/caramel aftertaste. Alone, this is a nice beer for a relaxing day, with food, that can be a bit tricky.

Great brew I had on draft while in Lincoln, NE. Almost too smooth...had some nice smoky flavor, but went so nicely. Decent brown head. After trying 2 brews from this company, I was very pleased. Looks like there is more than football in Lincoln!

From a 12 oz. stubby bottle with no freshness date. Poured a dark brown with a foamy, fluffy head that settled into a thin lacing. Simple aromas of chocolate, nutty grains with a light floral and citrus. Even, steady carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of coffee malts, nutty, a little burnt grain, citric fruitiness from the hops, and a chocolate malty, citric, grainy finish.

got this awhile back from EBOATS! Thanks pal, was in the fridge all this time. .... Poured a very dark brown, white creamy head. Nose was sweet with touches of nut. Good caramel and but to start, while the flavor profile ends from there, just drops off. Not a bad brew for a standard brown.

HulkamaniacUM (43) - Oxford, Mississippi, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Great heavy, nutty flavor out of the gates, but it finishes a little weak. I would’ve liked it to linger a little longer. Still a very good beer. A *little* watery, but not as much as, say, Newcastle.

On tap at Lazlos in Lincoln, Nebraska. Red color with a mediium tan head and good lacing. Distinct nose of chocolate, fruit, and coffee. Fairly light bodied, and average mouthfeel. Finish a little weak. Overall, however, a decent Brown.

Pours with two-finger light tan head that goes quickly leaving a little lace. Deep amber color. Burnt chocolate nose. Light carbonation and light bodied. Starts almost sweet, with chocolate overtones, quiet finish. Not a bad brown. $6.93 for a 6-pak of 12oz bottles from Supersaver Lincoln, Ne.
