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.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2002
Clear, dark brown w/ red accents. Aroma is of bark, hinting at bread crust, pecans and tobacco. Fairly full body, enhanced by the low carbonation and touch of oiliness. Malty front with light nuttiness leads to more iron-tasting middle. Finishes with earthy, toasty notes and an increase in hop dryness. Straightforward flavours very similar to the aroma. Thanks Shorlin!

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Brown pour, tannish head. Very malty aroma with a good scent of coffee. Flavor is really weird. Coffee mixed with plastic and nail polish. Smells better than it tastes.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Hazy, dark brown appearance with an off white head. Roasty, nutty, a bit charred aroma with light notes of fruit and wood. Burnt, roasty caramel malty, a touch smoky, lightly fruity flavor with a smooth finish and relatively little in the aftertaste. Easy enough to drink.

BVery (5612) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown/amber pour with a khaki colored head. Nose is slightly sweet and dusty. Medium palate. Taste is mild chocolate, a hint of fruit, sweet caramel, and some earthiness. Not too bad.

riversideAK (5560) - 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.
