COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Bottle: Highly complex, all colors of the rainbow to be found, full bodied, huge depth. They put it right "It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth." A beer for people who know, for the arrogant bastards.

It's a strong ale, for sure. Too much hop flavor for my tastes, there's no hint of malty undertone, just hops. It looks great, with the color and head, but i wish it was balanced better.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana obfita zdobi szkło, utrzymuje się. Kolor zmętniony bursztyn wpadający w czerwień. Aromat ubogi, delikatnie las, iglaki. Smak pełnia, karmel, ALE-owa delikatna owocowośc, chmielenie w żywiczny-cytrusowy charakter. Wyraźna dość wysoka, lekko zalegająca goryczka, alkohol ukryty. Piwo dobre, solidne, pije sie przyjemnie, choć jak na styl za mało american i za mało strong. Na pewno bez zachwytów i top50 w ratebeer mnie dziwi bo są lepsze piwa w stylu bez tego tytułu.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Pre-RateBeer review, so no tasting notes. 4/5 note jotted in my 1001 Beers guide. Will return to this beer when I get the chance. Had on draught as a guest beer in a BrewDog bar.

snowcrash000 (62) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2017
Pours a deep, dark red coloration with a small, medium, creamy, off-white head. Smells faintly of biscuity, caramel malts, toffee and red berries, with a hint of pine. Taste follows the nose, with a firm, slightly sweet and caramelly malt presence backed up by bitter, piney hops. Hints of chocolate, toffee, red berries and citrus. This is an expertly crafted and balanced amber ale that has great complexity without sacrificing drinkability. The balance between sweet malts and bitter, piney hops is exceptional with some nice layers of fruitiness and slight chocolate and toffee notes inbetween.

Probably the most unpleasant beer I've ever tried. And you lose points for being cocks. Perhaps there's a good beer in there somewhere, but then they added drain cleaner. There is no need for this level of astringency. If Trump made beer, it would have this level of self confidence and total lack of taste and drinkability.

Arogancko puszczone w żywioł słodu i chmielu, w tonacji gorzkiego karmelu, mogłoby być zdyskwalifikowane za niezrównoważenie gdyby nie piarowy elaborat na etykiecie i legenda awangardy craftowej. Do przyjęcia, pozycja obowiązkowa z powodów historycznych.

Vom Fass (Brewed at Berlin/D) Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-06 getrunken. Ich habe hier ein aggressives Bier vor mir. Es hat mir nicht geschmeckt. Abgesehen davon ist es ziemlich fraglich, dass ich genug Geschmack oder Erfahrung besitze, ein Bier mit dieser Qualität und Intensität richtig genießen zu können. Stone riet mir also, in gewohnten Gefilden zu bleiben... - Gute Idee der Werbabteilung von Stone also lasse ich diese dunkle Hopfen-Bitterbombe hinter mir und freue mich über ein schönes anderes Bier...
