Pours brown with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy, with just a bit malty sweetness. Taste is bitter, aromatic, flowery, with just enough body to make this beer . . well, a very good bastard liquidcrack (45) - Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2005
tap. dark read color with medium white head. nice smooth malt taste and smooth body. a very good drinking(3 or more ) beer. iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany colour with a big frothy head. Huge floral hop aroma. Nice thick mouthfeel. Great heavily hopped malt taste. If you like a good hop bite and lingering hop aftertaste this is a good one Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
Ruby with small head. Soft with good sweetness. Long growing dry bitter aftertaste. FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
Nice aroma with notes of hops and sweetness. Dark red almost dark brown with medium white head. Very tasty with lots of hops, alcohol and sweetness. A really nice barstard!

NIce brown pour with a medium off white head to it. Nice nutty caramely smell that is also present in the taste nice syrupy feel to it. It’s like a thick brown ale real nice. jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2005
this is an overly-hopped barley wine, bottle thanks to crosling. dry-hopped with something west coast, maybe centennial? just like the description it’s aggressive with grapefruit everywhere and piney resins dominating the mouthfeel. tons of residual bitterness to counteract a lot of malt--maybe a bit too bitter to drink all that often.... bsawatzky (153) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 poured a gorgous dark amber/red with thick creamy head. smelled hoppy and sweet with citrus, malt and fruit aromas. tasted much the same. strong bite, nice and spicey from the hops with a rich malty depth. a great ale. fuzzywasabeer (35) - boise, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2005
growing up a (stone) throw away and having family involved in the brewing process at stone has left me a little biased but ill try, 22oz bottle, dark red with 1/4 inch yellow head, malt-alco-sweet smell, big bite leaves your tastebuds confused for a half second then you realize it just tastes like a damn good ale, hope i did ok. kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
huge thanks to footbalm for this one. pours a deep red color. smells hugly of hops with a faint vanilla and honey? taste is hops at first then sweet and malty. has a mildly bitter after taste. a wonderful beer and i wish i could get this every day.
