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.

Got on tap at the local Old Chicago. Pours brown with light brown head. Not too sweet, not too dry. Has a bit of a nutty aroma. Was hoping the taste would follow, but not much flavor to speak of. Very mild and light. I may have gotten a bad sample as I finished off the keg. Will have to try again.

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

Bottle. Medium brown, light taste but some off tones. Just average not something to reach for.

Bottle poured a clear light brown hue w/ a quickly diminishing fizzy white head. Mild malt aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are ginger, caramel and hay. Light bodied and lively carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle from trade with billygoatbeard - still love a good brown and this is solid! aroma of malt, nut, caramel, roast. pour is an off brown that is hazy. Taste similar to aroma, nuts and sweetness up front and slight hops with slightest coffee maybe on backend. I would grab a six pack if this was local. Thanks Joel!

Even for a brown ale, Third Stone has a body thatís light and smooth. The carbonation is gentle and the texture is pleasantly slick. Of course, that minimalist body has a downside: the flavor and aroma get pushed into the background. While Third Stone hints at chocolate and roasted malt, itís happy just to tease. In that sense, this brown ale doesnít quite deliver. All the same, itís a respectable brew.

Mongo1965 (15) - Albertville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours a light maple color. Low head on pour but fine lacing. Get a good hint of chocolate and roasted nuts. Low hop presence and slightly sweet taste that lingers.

Its sweet, but not like English browns. Has a chocolate and nutty roasted flavor. Thickish and stick palate.

triplehopped (37) - - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a deep chocolate brown with a small tan head and small lacing. Aroma is a roasty malt with a very subtle hint of hay. Taste is medium sweet. Medium bodied with average carbonation, sits smooth and finishes clean with a slight, pleasant bitterness. Overall, a satisfying brown that would have accompanied a steak or burger superbly.

Nsanders (565) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Tap. Medium orange brown with a tall off-white head. Caramel, slight earthiness, and pasta. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium body, foamy feel.
