Johnsense (1711) - - APR 23, 2017
Amber pour, virtually no head. Smoky aroma, earthy, ash, scotch. Loads of barrel in the taste, smoke, oak, ash, scotch highlights come through better as it warms. Medium body, lower carbonation, still a touch boozy.

big smoke and scotch. dark smoke coloured body. big mouthfeel. big beer a sipper.

JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour, with a small light tan head. Scotch whiskey, caramel, apple, wood, smoke, peat, and some chemical smoke.

Un liquide assez brun et passablement boueux. Aucune véritable mousse ne se développe. Au nez, caramel et toffee, cerises de Pologne et scotch bien fumé. Intéressant sans être réellement renversant. Au goût, force activée par le fût, bois brûlé, tourbe qui fume, base maltée qui n’est pas à son plein potentiel et succulents fruits rouges. Étonnante, pourrais-je dire. Corps diminué par son vieillissement et bulles de bière imbibé de scotch. Acidité et poivre en fin de gorgée. Bouteille bue partiellement avec madame ma femme. Merci à Ferris pour cette bouteille.

(Pendant le ’’Calm before the sorm’’ à Stone Liberty Station): Grande chaleur, tannins et fumées dans un liquide aminci qui respire le caramel brûlé. Faut aimer l’assaut tourbé inconditionnellement.

Bottle at Liberty Station. Pours ruby copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes very dry, like scotch, ash, dried fruits, woody. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like booze, ash, smoke, dried fruits, wood.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle shared by Sparky! Peaty, tart cherry skin, ash, oak, malty, and some mineral. Just not a huge fan!

"Whoa...this is the leel of peaty malty goodness I was hoping for in the base, or even the original whiskey version. While those were adequately malty and fruity, they lacked the peat. I’m not looking for a smoke monster, and this was not one. But it is a ridiculously drinkable as balanced beer, especially at 12.5%! Aroma and taste of charred oak, peat, apple and other fruit. Little show of alcohol, though its a sipper. Love this beer. Wish it was a locally available option, and I’m VERY curious about the batch 2 blend. Kudos Stone. "

Bottle purchased in San Diego. I’ve waited over a year to try this beer and it does not disappoint. A strange and different beer. Big, malty, smoky with even a sourness to it. Aromas of whiskey barrel and the pour is cloudy, dark amber. Not sure where the tartness is coming from, but I’m liking it especially as it warms.

Ratman197 (15109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2014
500 ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of smoke, toffee, fruitiness, light caramel and light oak. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of toffee, smoke, iodine, light caramel, light fruitiness and light oak with a smooth dry lingering smokey finish.
