Ferris (16278) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft - Citrus hops and malts to balance. Clear amber with a yellow rich head. Although no oak in the nose, comes out in the taste. Citrus hops again with a nice bite and a malt sweetness to balance. Long bitter finish but oh so good.

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle, 7.2%. Nice, bonbony sweet hop aroma. Almost clear red/brown colour. Very bitter flavour with good aroma hops. Ends on a weak, but nice, vanilla, cigarbox aftertaste.

bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Aroma of flowery hop underlaid with pine hop. Or vice versa. I detect no yeast - probably because my nasal palate is hopped! Deep mahogany red color with a white head which collapses. Starts with an impression of sweetness, very smooth, and the hops are not at all overpowering. Very good mouthfeel, and very appropriate level of carbonation. The oak is almost spicy. The finish endures with oaky malt. It’s really quite interesting. Almost like a mild version of Anchor’s Our Christmas Ale.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours deep cloudy brown, with a large beige head. The nose is oak, leather, sweaty sock and a touch of caramel sweetness. The taste is full of oak, resin, spice, leather, salty brown bread, chewy malt and some caramel, with a long, dry finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Get your oak fix right here. Interesting, but not overly drinkable.

djd07 (15341) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark cloudy amber with a medium off white head that diminishes rather quickly to a ring around the glass. The aroma is a sweet fruit hops with carmel malt. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a bitter hops with a spicy oak finish. Really impressed with this american strong ale from Stone.

On cask @ Falling Rock poured a cloudy copper with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of spice, malt, wood and yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wood, vanilla and malt with a drt, bitter finish.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle at Distortion08 Soupalicious - Shared with Mette - thanks Sune for shipping this to me. Clear brown - offwhite/yellow head. Chokolate, roasted, bisquit, light oak/wood, raisins, resin, citric, caramel, lovely hoppy. Again a unbalanced but fantastic beer from Stone. Smoothness & violent at the same time.

imdownthepub (15131) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Thick dark brown with no head. Heavy, sugary, sweet toffee like, chocolatey beer. Totally flat unfortunately and cloying. Some fruitiness in the close, but I couldn’t really get on with this.
