A slightly reddish, dark brown beer with a dense, medium and beige head. The nose has nutty malts, wood, some roastiness, herbal hoppyness in the end. Medium bodied, pleasant and smooth carbonation, almost velvety to drink. Stone has brewed again a velvet beer, that’s great. Wooden beer which I couldn’t find the final purpose, a basic good beer.

Bottle - 330ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, Qc). Beautiful amber body with a thick, lasting, off-white foamy head. Good hoppy aroma with malty, oaky, and cinnamon hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries oaky and fruity notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Aroma is caramel, hop and malt. Taste is wood, caramel and a lot of "double bastard"-ish. Taste didn’t last too long though.

Flaska från Privatimport. Klar rubinröd vätska med gulfärgat skum. Massiva dofter av tallbarr, kåda och citrus. Förvånansvärt mjuk och len inledning som sedan ersätts av ett ordentligt riv i beskan. Ekfatstonerna ramar in smaken på ett bra vis. Denna var riktigt smarrig. Ytterligare en fullträff från Stone.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From BA review on 2-5-12 -
On tap and served in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden amber color with a eggshell head that was thick and persistent. With swirling there was some very nice lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is lighter than expected. Mostly hoppy in nature; pine with a bit of citrus mixed in. The oak is detected at the end, but is relatively mild in nature.
Taste – A bit of bitter hoppiness is the first to met the tongue. It is mainly piney in flavor. A sweeter malt flavor then comes into play. While the backbone of the sweeter flavor is caramel, there are subtle bits of oak and vanilla in there as well. Finally, some more bitter citrus hops come toward the end, rounding out the taste and balancing out quite nicely w the sweeter maltier flavors.
Mouthfeel – With a creamy body and a moderate to average carbonation it makes it easy to drink.
Overall – A tasty brew with a very nice and complex flavor profile. Only complaint would be with the oakiness, which is quite low for an “oaked” beer.
