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!

yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG-12. A more or less clear one, dark brown in color and with a dense, light beige head. Roasted, chocolatey aroma with some spiced hints. Alcohol too, and some raisin notes. Quite pleasant, but a bit too much I think. The flavor is more balanced and pleasant, it’s warming on the palate, full-bodied and dryish, yet it’s quite sweet tasting. Roasted malts, chocolate notes, some raisins and a faint spiced hint. Lasting roasted, bitter, dry and warming finish. A beer well suited for an anniversary. 120818

Bomber from Bine and Vine. Pours very ark brown with ruddy glints and a slight tan head. Aroma has lots of dark fruit. Full bodied. Flavor has lots of dark fruit with chocolate, coffee, probably date sugar and likely floral hop is dominating. It finishes well balanced without heat - leaning to the malt side.
