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.

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.

St. Pats Day 2005, Crescent Moon Ale House (Omaha). On tap. Iím half-heartedly compelled to state that this is not an unejoyable beer. I wouldnít go so far as to say itís tasty, or interesting, or pleasing; but it wasnít bad in any discernable way, and itís not bad in ways that I find impressive. Uninteresting in looks: murky brown in the glass, a dusting of head retained, not much action in the lacing/racing categories. Smells vaguely sweet and lemony (very vaguely), somewhat yeasty, maybe. There might have been some roastiness and nutiness, but I could have been projecting that based on the looks. It seemed musty (cobwebs, dust), but not in a dominant way; it was like an attic that had just been cleaned, but not very well. It was most certainly sweet, and sweet in a nice controlled way. The finish rounded off into a graham-cracker sweetness that was admirable. Body was medium, but it felt lighter without some dominant flavor or collection of flavors floating on top of it, which made it seem lighter and more watery than it was or looked.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Color: dark, chestnutty brown, with a short, dunnish head. Aroma: chock-full-o-nuts, with lesser tones of cocoa and pepper behind. Rich, creamy, and airy. Body is full, but texture lacks. Hops are largely MIA. A drinkable drink, but itís missing much in the way of character, and reminds me too much of a Newcastle. Toward the end, I felt better about this brew. The nuttiness remained on the palate and ably stood itís ground, but overall flavor should have stood out more. It merely laid about, had no spark or tingle. Too mild for me.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Poured much darker brown than I expected with thin white head...malty nutty nose with something twangy in it...tasted malty and metallic....lost me on the flavor...

mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Brown with small off white head. Smelled of toasted malts. Chocolate and vanilla flavor blend proved to be pretty nice. Tasted much better upon warming a bit. Malt flavors changed with temperature also to be more nutty than chocolatey. Very enjoyable drink.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Brown color with hint of orange through the light. smaller, but stable bone colored head. Very dry aromas of hearty grain bread. Moderate body with a lightly acidic finish. Lightly sweetened nuts and a more simple sweetness in the middle. Toasted malt fin the finish and linger. A light flavored brown that is quite straight forward.
