Whether you are writing the correct year by now or not, it’s officially 2013. That means a new Stone Brewing Co. Odd Beer for Odd Years release. The first time around, Old Guardian was “Belgianized”. This year is a oak smoked edition. This beer makes uses of the same smoked malt used in recent collaboration The Perfect Crime.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Best before end 2016, according to non original Swedish tag
Hazy amber color with dark copper hue, creamy head. Give it a few minutes, it will develop a harmonious aroma of toffee and smoke, medium depth, with some elegance. Full bodied, malt flavor with toffee and biscuits, delicate smoke, wood; the sweetness is moderate; strong bitterness, with hop resins in the background; long final.
Frankly, well brewed, bold but balanced.
