Pours deep ruddy broiwn with a tan head that envelopes the glass. Heavily carbonated creating a sharp mouthfeel. Flavor is meaty, like iron. Just not a good experience. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Deep red pour with off white head and lace. Brown sugar and cheery aroma. Toasted malt and brown sugar flavor. Medium full bodied with very good carbonation. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Stone Sour Fest shared by Floydster. Thanks a lot! Bottle #199/200. Copper brown with a gusher head. Malt and yeast nose. Sweet spices. Warming on the nose. Taste is alcohol, dark fruit, with a sharp malt finish. Licorice hidden in there? Tmoney99 (15120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle shared at Noogfest High 5.
Poured hazy copper brown color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration.
Very good brew that I would recommend to a freind.

Sample from Noogfest High 5. The body was reddish brown with a yelloing khaki head. This was overcarbonated. The bread dough and raisin aroma was fairly pleasing. Taste of sweet peanuts and caramel. There was a slightly dry woody finish. Nice stuff, they need to get the carbonation down. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Sampled at Noogfest High 5. Pours reddish brown with huge beige head and heavy carbonation. The aroma is caramel, peat, some carob, and pennies. The flavor is earth, peat, lots of sweet caramel, and a little bit of fruitiness. Pretty good beer, but there I just have a hard time getting into it.
