COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it came time to brew Bottleworks 13th anniversary beer, we turned to Stone to brew this behemoth. "The Matts" traveled down to San Diego in December to help create this 13-hop, 13-grain monument to our 13 years of selling great craft beer!

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Aroma is very complex with all the hops and malts. Appearance is very dark, almost stout-esque. Taste is very nice. It has a very smooth mouth-feel. It has a great drinkability for a beer with such a high abv.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle: Super deep brown pour, faint ruby edges, nearly black center. Light khaki head barely forms, fade quickly to a collar. Aroma of spicy rye, dirty earth notes, light cardboard, burnt toast, ashy leaves, a hint of citrus peel, & some faint caramel. Flavor is more sweet with caramel & lightly metallic toffee notes. Heavy earth, rose hip, perfume, burnt rye bread, toast, a touch of chocolate syrup, faint anise, some very mild prune. Kind of all over the place, but not bad. A little harsh at times, kind of has an "old" flavor in the aftertaste. Not bad but not great, either.

brnandersen (2528) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2014
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Dark, amber colour with a creamy, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, dark malts, sweet fruits, liquorice, coffee, spices and nuts. Light hints of alcohol. Very good. Taste is light sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Finishes drying with rich fruits and caramel malts. Excellent - with a good warmth.

CloakedDagger (1164) - - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle 65 cl. Pours brown with an orange hue and a beige head. Warm alcohol aroma, oddly spicy - even medicinal and herbal. Rich, sweet body, nuts and burned caramel with a massive hop and alcohol impact. Not so much aromatic hops, more bittering, some sweet licorice. Unusual and interesting. 081114

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"really nice pulling together of 13 different types of malt in this beer, including two distinct chocolate malts. The hops, while aggressive, seemed a bit muddled, like maybe a combo of these 13 was a bit much. loved the bite of this beer...loved the flavor, especially the chocolate roasty sweetness, and liked the aroma (shows a little more alcohol than the flavor). not a world beater, but pretty nice."

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a dark porter tone. Aroma is that of perfect malt. Taste is richness. Finish is warm and clean. Perfect
