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.

Benzai (14821) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2011
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Slightly reddish / brown color, medium sized slightly off-white head. Dont smell that much, a bit boring smell. Taste is really good though! Taste wood, caramel, slightly roasty, hops and bitter. Very good taste! Nice carbonation, full body.

bhensonb (14632) - 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. Its really quite interesting. Almost like a mild version of Anchors Our Christmas Ale.

Tmoney99 (14023) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bottle at Dilly Deli Stone Night. Poured a deep brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted and had good lacing. Good roasted malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Full malty citrus flavor with a smooth woody finish with a small alcohol bite. Good beer.

imdownthepub (13874) - 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 couldnt really get on with this.

Ferris (13850) - 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.
