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.

This is pretty solid. Not too nutty or malty. Easy drinking but with a full flavor. Certainly a beer worthy of repeat-drinking.

Nutty flavor is deep, rich, with walnut and hazelnut essences. Warm--yum.

I was extremely pleasantly surprised by this one. An attractive brown with thin head, but nice malty smell, with enough hops in the background to balance. It has a really nice hazelnut quality to it. A happy surprise.

Crystal clear coppery caramel. Thin, foamy vanilla head. Sparse, big bubbled carbonation. Earthy aroma, chocolate, grass and toasted hay. Mellow, gentle with a lulled carbonation. Metallic notes ride the earthy malt base of mildly toasty, bittersweet chocolate and nutty flavors. Dry. Medium light body. Intriguing mix of malt flavors, with a touch of smoke mid way. Smooth and easy going. Finishes cottony, dry and bready with a long aromatic grassy hop finish. Earthy? Third Stone? Nice touch.

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.

12oz shorty bottle. Deep, opaque stained-glass red/brown. Thin off white head laces the glass. Deep, smooth chocolate, caramel, toffee notes. Medium bodied, a pretty true to style example. Rich, sweet, chocolate tones. Somewhat nutty. Refreshing. Well executed.

Deep red-brown. Low but nice carb. Nice super malty nose. I may have to let thi swarm up a little before I finish it. Time passes.... Pretty nice. Warm, solid malty taste that lasts and lasts.

My roommate brought some of this home when he went to Nebraska for his job. It is a pretty damn good brown ale. Not as good as Pete’s wicked but damn good nonetheless.

Great heavy, nutty flavor out of the gates, but it finishes a little weak. I would’ve liked it to linger a little longer. Still a very good beer. A *little* watery, but not as much as, say, Newcastle.

Nice smooth beer with medium to little head. Had a pleasant scent, and a very unique flavor. Goes down easy (sometime too easy) and has a coco/caramel aftertaste. Alone, this is a nice beer for a relaxing day, with food, that can be a bit tricky.
