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.

Aroma: notes of caramel and eclectic mixes of toffee and assorted treats; Appearance: gorgeous deep amber color with a very full and tan head; Flavor: hoppy beginning with embodied malt in the middle, as well as a citrus finish; Palate: crisp with a retention of solidity and warmth; Overall: bold, robust flavor that endures.

Shoprite Hoboken NJ. Bottled. Very nice nose. Pine mixed with cherries and chocolate. Nice head. Very hoppy, although the malts bring out enough sweetness to balanced and contrast the bitterness. Taste is same as the nose just a tad bit sweeter than i would have thought from the aroma. Good Beer!

Like a mellowed-out Arrogant Bastard. A good beer, but in my opinion, not worth the price.

stellar offering from stone. worthy of a self righteous reissue at a later date. lots of pine hop character. much better as it warms. thank you stone. you keep my belly happy.
