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.

kramer (5505) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2006
12 oz bottle, via BA swid. Pours a clear dark brown with a small off-white head that faded quickly. Light chocolate malt aroma, slightly grainy, with a touch of DMS. Flavor is slightly roasty with a little grainy harshness, finish is lightly bitter. Light to medium bodied with moderate fine carbonation. Another middle of the road Brown. Does anybody make a Brown Ale to get excited about?

Bottle from eboats Thanks!

Pours dark and brown, with midnight highlights. Aroma is a light malted roasty flavor. Chocolate, coffee are also evident. Flavor is a bizarre spike of red wine and sour malt. Nutty, yes, but nutty like an expired coffee cream of the same flavor. Palate is thin. Iíll avoid this in the future.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with eboats! - Thanks Caleb! - Pours dark rich brown with a creamy tan head that stays well and laces some. Aroma of caramel malts, some chocolate, and much nutty character. Flavor is caramel, nuts, chocolate, and brief hops on the finish. Palate is smooth without much carbonation.

Not good but also not the worst Iíve ever had. Iím not impressed withit though. Empyrean Brewing Co. makes some great micros but this one just doesnít do it for me. Many others like it a lot.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells malty with some chocolate and coffee notes. Taste has some tarte qualities with more coffee and chocolate dominating. Finish is slightly peppery.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Thanks to Sledge Jr for this one! A frothy off white head starts this one off. Garnet color with a sweet malty aroma A bit of sourness in the finish is the only flavor detractor, otherwise itís an average, typical brown ale if a bit thin.

My first NE beer? Sep Bier Meisters meeting. Muddy brown color, khaki head. Aroma is mildly roasty with nutty notes, maybe some broen sugar and plums. Taste is roasty, chocolate, coffee, and hops. Some light bitterness in the finish. Nice brown ale.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours medium brown (duh!) with light tan head. Aroma and flavor both have a good amount of roastiness and nuttiness. Lightly hopped as it should be. A little thin on the palate, as many from this brewer are. But, not a bad beer.

One of the beers in my cellar I thought I had consumed. Very Nice beer. Roasty and chocolately, nice malt flavor. Smooth drinkable beer. Definitely the best of the Nebraska beers Iíve had.
