A Stein’s Throw, is an 8.5% ABV amalgamation of a barley wine and a traditional stein beer. We teamed up with the staff over at TAPS Brewery in Brea to make this strong, brown ale. To add an extra layer of complexity, we heated granite rocks up to 900º and added it to the wort along with a generous addition of date sugar for added gravity. The result is rich with fruity esters and toffee richness but finishes dry after being fermented with yeast strains special to the Bruery and TAPS.

Kevin (2191) - New Mexico, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle pours a dark hazed amber with a head that does not last. Smells like bubble gum and fig paste. Taste is sweet very sweet with a strong cantalope and grape. Caramel lingers but although this does dry out some it is still sweet. Fig notes linger forever

Christian (12627) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Odense catch-up from the cellar. Hazy copper with a small white head, Weak fruity aroma, with strawberry and pear and a hint of bread. Very sweet fruity flavour with malt and a touch of alcohol. Clean and well brewed, but far too sweet to be drinkable

Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours clear ruby reddish caramel brown with a rather small goldenish beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and fruity with caramel, dates, raisins, toasted cereal, alcohol, sweet dark bread, wood, oatmeal, apple jam, glue and hints of liquorice root and cinnamon. Taste is sweet, tiny sour, fruity and malty with caramel, sweet dark bread, dark grapes, overripe plums, dates, hay, brown sugar, soil, toasted cereal, alcohol, dusty oatmeal flakes and hints of apple skins. Mouthfeel is round, tiny boozy, tiny sticky sweet, tiny tart and medium bodied. Finish us tiny sweet, tiny sour, malty and fruity with caramel, toasted cereal, apple skins, raisins, dates, alcohol, hay and wood. Over expectations...
