COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

I loved it without opening the bottle. Beautiful complexion. Very dark amber, Complex sweet and somewhat fruity flavors, finishes nicely although this is not to say it is overly gentle. Two is my limit and then Im feeling quite happy and ready to relax and watch whatever sport Im in to on the tube.

Now, I was told before I had this beer that it was the "worst beer ever" and Id have to disagree. Not the best beer ever though, mainly because of its aftertaste, but not bad. It is overrated at 4.08 though.

Complex brew...definite burnt malt/caramel flavor with a hoppy/citrus finish. Kind of a war of the taste buds, between the malt and hops. Unfortunately my only chance to try this beer was at a temperature slightly colder than 70 degrees or so. Im going to re-rate this one once I get a nice cold sample.

Stone does not know how to make a bad beer, with that said, no description necessary. It you havent had ABA yet your missing out.

One of the highest rated beers in the world, everything Stone Brewing Company does is top notch. The aroma is somewhat of a nutty earthy smell. When poured it appears as a dark, lightly red color with a head that lasts forever seemingly, having the consistency of watery motor oil. Your taste buds will dance to the overpowering rich, smoky coffee flavor with notes of nuts, seeds and various herbs, maybe a dash of citrus. Its an amazing brew that lives up to its hype!

This beer was great. The head was cream colored and abundant. Lacing was all the way around the glass. It had the color of mahogany wood: a very nice, rich amber. It was crystal clear and had a sweet aroma to it. The maltiness hits first and goes down smooth. The hops hit in the back of the mouth and leave a nice aftertaste. This is a great ale.

Pretty nice hefty brew. Dark, strong appearance and flavor. Lasting malty flavor with equally lingering bitter hops taste to it. Overall well rounded beer.

Pours a deep amber with a modest creamy head. Malty aroma with caramel, citrus and pine needles. Full body, oily feel, average carbonation. Taste kicks off with lots of bitterness from grapefruit, coffee, roasted malt and some marzipan. Loooong and hoppy finish.

A very deep amber/red colored beer that forms a decent head. It has an interesting flavor to it. A heavy taste of alcohol however remains in your mouth. Overall I am worthy of it.
