Tmoney99 (13155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bottle at Dilly Deli Stone Night. Poured a deep brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted and had good lacing. Good roasted malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Full malty citrus flavor with a smooth woody finish with a small alcohol bite. Good beer.

FatPhil (13048) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 21, 2010
355ml bottle (Utobeer, London)
Lovely rich reddy brown, large persistent tight head. While pouring it gives off a lovely peachy hoppy aroma. Closer up, in the glass, it’s also quite nutty, some vanilla too. Pleasant carbonation, and a lovely soft palate, if perhaps a bit sweet and sugary. Taste a pleasant mix of rich but not overly-roasted malt, and massive nutty bitterness. Real bitter hops, the likes of which are rare in US beers. However, despite the bitterness, it’s not soapy at all. Quite drying, and with a burn cake, or burnt dried-peel feel to it. Finish has burnt raisins, and unfortunately quite frequently a waft of booze. Of course, bitterness is in the finish, long and drying, and a touch cloying because of the sweetness. Very solid beer, and very well crafted. My first Stone, and I was fairly impressed.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Pours dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is wood, whiskey and caramel. The flavour is complex - dominantly woody, caramel, and various spices, with bitter notes on the finish. Very nice.

imdownthepub (12800) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Thick dark brown with no head. Heavy, sugary, sweet toffee like, chocolatey beer. Totally flat unfortunately and cloying. Some fruitiness in the close, but I couldn’t really get on with this.

bu11zeye (12593) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2004
(Sample of TChrome’s 3L bottle) Pours a deep amber color with a large biege head. Not nearly as aggressive as the original. Nice mellow hops flavor with some sweetness. Shouldn’t offend those who are not as big of hop lovers.

Benzai (12571) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2011
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Slightly reddish / brown color, medium sized slightly off-white head. Don’t smell that much, a bit boring smell. Taste is really good though! Taste wood, caramel, slightly roasty, hops and bitter. Very good taste! Nice carbonation, full body.
