COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Patterned after the rich, smooth, malty ales of Scotland, Stone’s Throw is dominated by caramel toffee, toasty malt, hints of cocoa, residual honey sweetness and just enough hops to keep this rock on the button. The perfect brew for someone new to craft beer. Cheers, skip!

Again, feel bad for the poor rating. Love the can design. Pours hazy, light reddish brown with absolutely no head. Aroma has chocolate, but also smells oxidized, has diacetyl, and an overwhelming amount of acetic. Vinegar bomb. Flavor is more papery chocolate, kinda pickle juice. Total bummer.

Can - Fargo brewed. North Dakota tick and a curling themed beer tick! Dark amber pour. First off, I dont really ever drink this style, so i dont know wtf to look for but aroma is nutty, slightly raisin. Light in flavor, but caramel and a bit of fruit. Not a great beer, but pretty easy to drink, and a legit Nodak brew.

IndianaRed (2186) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle sent from Jake65 Slightly hazy deep chestnut brown with a dense very sturdy sandy colored head. Mild woody malt aroma. Sweet malty flavors of wheat toast with butter and honey. Some slight rusty nail notes, and a touch bitter at the end. Very soft carbonation and a full and smooth feel. Not bad,

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to Jake65. Pours a translucent nut brown with some thin, lacing, slightly off white head. Nose is interesting, some apple, some cider, a little chocolate, some bread, earthy, a little soil, some stone fruit, a little dusty. Flavor is nice, malty, brown sugar, a little light caramel, some apple, some plum, a little bread crust, some orange. Relatively clean finish.

Maltser85 (148) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Beer pours a well carbonated deep amber borderline red color. Off white 3 finger frothy head mellows into a decent off white tight bubbled ring. The initial aroma right out of the fridge was very grainy, sour maltish. As it warmed and was aerated there was a raisiny sweet characteristic and maybe a slight caramel note that rose to the surface. Initial taste has decent carbonation, slight caramel notes at the front of the mouth that fades quickly, finishes with a slightly bitter astringency and then comes through with a bit more weak caramel. The beer is very light. There is not a ton of body. Some weak lacing on the glass. As the beer warms it definitely gets more of a grainy unpleasant scent. This is not a great beer and not a good example of the style. Not the beer that should represent Fargo or North Dakota. One thing to note…this brewery just started brewing their own beer in Fargo. The bottle I am reviewing is from the Sand Creek Brewing Company that they contracted to brew for them until they had their own brewery going. Lets hope that the Fargo produced beer is significantly better because if its not, they will not go far. When the head brewer or “brewmaster” makes public comments about brewing outstanding beer and his palate is the quality control, then you better produce. I look forward to re reviewing this beer in the near future.
