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.

Appearance: Pours a dark, clear red with a 1/2 inch of tan foam. Leaves a milky lacing as you drink down your beer. Aroma: A large bouquet of hops, lending a bit of citrus and pine. I also find some sweetness coming to my nose, which I would associate with rock candy sugar or turbinado sugar. Taste: A mouthful of bitter hops that hits the front and middle of my tongue. While that flavor never quite goes away after the first sip, a trained tongue can get past that part and taste some really sugary malts, and a tad bit of fruitiness. The finish is, again, very bitter and gives off a flavor of warm alcohol. When the beer gets warmer, you get an almost berry twang as well. Mouthfeel: First a bit astringent, then a little bit creamy. This is definitely thick and heavy, a little coating, but not sticky. Overall: Very close in relation to Arrogant Bastard Ale from a looks perspective ,close in relation to Double Bastard Ale with its body and mouthfeel, but doesn’t really resemble 10th Anniversary Ale with its hop profile.
