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.

superspak (4581) - Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

HuskerTan (1669) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, slightly roasty, peat. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, beige head. T- Malty, bland. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Pretty damn boring and not much going on at all. Like I couldn’t even come up with any half decent descriptors. I’ve officially decided Empyrean is the worst brewery in Nebraska.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle at home pours brown with a thin tan head. Slight malt and roast on the nose. Flavor follows. Some nuttiness also thin bodied ms finishes dry and slightly bitter. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Troupis (208) - - DEC 19, 2014
Stopped in Lincoln, Nebraska after 600 miles of driving and found this beer buried in a cooler of Busch Light at a gas station where I'm pretty sure I was looked down on for driving a car without rust or that wasn't an oversized truck. It was worth the hick-dirty looks because this was a nicely created unpasteurized brown ale. Felt a little sugary somehow but full of taste. Nebraska will still be known for its tasty tractor gas more than its beer but I'm glad I found this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Like every other run of the mill brown ale. Lightly toasted, lightly sweet, minimal hops. Meh.
