COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Stein’s Throw, is an 8.5% ABV amalgamation of a barley wine and a traditional stein beer. We teamed up with the staff over at TAPS Brewery in Brea to make this strong, brown ale. To add an extra layer of complexity, we heated granite rocks up to 900º and added it to the wort along with a generous addition of date sugar for added gravity. The result is rich with fruity esters and toffee richness but finishes dry after being fermented with yeast strains special to the Bruery and TAPS.

Compact aroma of raisins, caramel, fudge and figs. The taste is similar with some traces of honey. A little sweet. Incredible beer!

750 ml bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR (thanks Andrew) poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, dates, toffee and brown sugar. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, toffee, brown sugar and dates with a smooth dry lingering brown sugar finish.

Specialty ale apparently made for a Californian brew pub with a fish restaurant attached to it. Off-white, coarse, quickly dissipating head, colour a deep and pure bronze, misty. Aroma nicely and refinedly perfumed, dates, raisins, chocolate, port wine, gingerbread, candi syrup, black pepper, wodka... Taste a rounded fruity sweetness in onset, but in a ’cooked’ and ’sugared’ way (candied dates and figues, apple sauce), citrussy freshness vaguely present, then softly malty, chocolate and caramel, ginger-like spicy accents, in the finish a peppery hop bitterishness along with some warm, non-astringent alcohol. In terms of style, I would classify this as a top-fermented barley-wine interpretation of the old German Steinbier tradition, as it has apparently been caramelised with hot granite rocks.
