I've had this beer many times over the last six years, although my tastes have evolved, this is still a bold, flavorful, easy drinking ale.

It's very tasty and as the label says, "you probably won't like it!" Ha!

Very good beer, but for the faint of heart. If you've never had this style before, the first sip can be intimidating. It's a beer to be sipped and savored, not chugged. Highly recommended.

Pours a clear cooper brown color with a two finger off white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, and resin. Taste is pine, resin and bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a bit of an oily feel. Overall, a very good strong ale that is undeniably stone, no mistaking it.
