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.

12 oz bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, roast and malts. Taste is nutty and malty.

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 couldnít even come up with any half decent deScriptors. Iíve officially decided Empyrean is the worst brewery in Nebraska.

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

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.

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

UncleKorm (1099) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014
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

crajun (1090) - , Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2014
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!

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2015 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.

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.
