COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Steinís 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 900ļ 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.

750ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish amber with little light passing or through underneath a small thick beige head. Aroma is sweet with carame malts and brown sugar but also has a mineral presence, presumably from the granite. There is a good bit of plums and other overripe dark fruits, soaked in booze. Taste is sugary sweet up front, lots of molasses and fruity esters? Some earthy hops and caramel. The finish is definitely bitter, some coming from the hops, but also a bit of mineral aftertaste. Interesting. Mouthfeel is excellent, medium bodied and really smooth with soft carbonation. Iíve definitely had better barleywines but itís interesting and better than some of the Bruery beers Iíve had recently, so itís mainly positives for me. Definitely sweeter than I was expecting though.

Kevin (2037) - Colorado, 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 (10778) - 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...

Room 316 Tulip Hotel tasting with Ian and Colin. Hazy deep amber beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and a little soft and semi dry. Sweetish caramel malt with a touch of dark fruits. Mild malt cream. Trace of spice. Light dry finish. Tastes quite Belgian and is very drinkable. The three of us polished the bottle off.
