performula (148) - Heart of the Rockies, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours a brown amber. Sweet oak scent. scent. Citrus backbone with a wood finish. Not what I was expecting. I remember Arrogant Bastard Ale being more tasty?

csbosox (1225) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2007
GABF 2006-Mild aroma, mostly of earthy hops with an oak backing. Taste is malty with some oak. Iím not impressed.

MagooinPA (100) - Warminster, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12oz pour to small white head and deep brownish color. Nose of candy + oak, too much oak. This would be better if it was oak from bourbon barrels or the like. Dogfish Headís version of 90 minute soaked in bourbon barrels is awesome, this is mediocre at best. Glad I bought only one. My least favorite offering from Stone.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle - Slightly hazy red brown body with a small beige head; Strange not to pleasant diesel oil caramel oaked not to well composed nor pleasant nose; Strange thin full body, unbalanced; Long finish with a slight alcohol bite, again a strange composition of oak and caramel, harsh: STONE makes the best of beers, but this one doesnt really hit the mark, way to strange, those damn oak chips!

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2008
A real weird one. Piney hops with sour, unripe nectarines, oak, mint and vanilla. The mouthfeel is all rasping raw wood, with vanilla flavour and vague salty and medicinal notes. Strangely obscene in some ways, but I really had no problem drinking it and would gladly do so again. I guess thereís just enough malt sweetness to balance the weird hop/wood mix. Still, Iíve gotta say I think itís an awful concept.

mephisto (1272) - TAIWAN - SEP 21, 2008
pours cloudy amber with thick beige head, it is actually quite pretty. the aroma is grapefruit and the flavor is fruity maltiness with a distinct bitter finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 20, 2009
21/11/2009. 12oz bottle from RW&S. Iím not sure what they were trying to do here but itís another Stone disappointment. Their brand and attitude seems to take a front seat, with drinkability usually in the back - in this case it is in the trunk! Too much oak with nothing else really getting a look in. Itís like a red wine with too much tannin... I struggled through hoping something would click but it never did. as big as this beer was it was no match for the stunning accompanying movie - Synecdoche New York.

TEJA (1414) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2010
Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Beige lasting foam. Deep dark amber color. Typical american hop aroma with some dark chrystal malts. Huge lasting bitterness with much hop taste and some caramell but not nearly enough to balance this bitter bastard. Big body. This is a beer to be drunk in small quantities.
