COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone 13th Anniversary Ale pours brilliant deep red with a light tan foam. Up front, the aroma is all piney, resinous and citrus hops. Upon tasting, the hops are still on the front, and they are balanced with the malty, toffee like flavors contributed from the blend of crystal and amber malts used in the brewhouse. The finish is deliciously bitter, with a touch of warmth provided by the 9.5% alcohol. Bitterness comes in at 90+ IBU.

Tap Room in beautiful PB, San Diego. Nose is boozy, malty bread pudding, reminds me of the Double Bastard. Appearance is opaque coffee with a minimal french vanilla head. Hits the palate like a sock full of nickels, only they’re not nickels, they’re hops and they’re taking over and setting up shop. Tastes like a special ale, the kind that should come with a loaf of bread and a designated driver. Hops, malt, caramel, and more hops...Stone does it again.

Pours reddish brown. Aroma is caramel with some hops. Bold flavor driven by malt and toffee, but with nice balancing bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Nose is very distinctly soy sauce. Pours a translucent brown with minimal tan head. Flavor is citrusy hops with a fair amount of sweet malt balancing it out. Slightly dry finish. The hops are not biting at all, but I’m wondering if I didn’t let this sit a bit too long before opening it. Even now, however, this is a very good beer.

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin dark moka head. Nice aroma of hops, licorice, soy sauce, herbal and complex. In mouth, burned caramel malt with soy sauce, loads of c-hops, toffee, light coffee grains and super warming alcohol. Rich, onctuous, and challenging. Bottle from Probstk, thanks Karl.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Deep amber color with a foamy head. Aroma is all pine and citrus hops. Lots of roasty caramel malt balanced out by the hops on the finish. Very nice.

Bottled (BB 06/2010)
Clear dark ruby color, small tan head. Sticky cut grass hoppyness and dry yeast. Citrusy hoppy, bready malts, licorice and alcohol. Aftertaste is pleasant, but I don’t like sharp hoppyness in this beer.

oh6gdx (21776) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2010
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Ruby colour, small head. Aroma is hops, sticky alcohol, more hops and alcohol. Flavour is rather much the same. Very Stone-like hoppy super IPA, but sadly I don’t like this type of hoppyness in a beer...

Bomber, Pours a very cloudy ruby chestnut with a frothy head of the same color, aroma is pear, citric hops, and some alcohol, smooth and juicy, with some of the fruit present and a long-lingering bitter finish

Pours Brown/Red with huge, creamy, beige head with good lacing. Sugar, caramel and a hint of hops, definitely a shadow of it’s former self. Caramel, sugar, brown sugar and bitter at the end. A touch of roast maybe. Not bad. Very Double Bastard-ie. Wish I had a chance to have it fresh. Not bad though.
