Consumed at Stone Bistro Liberty Station (where it is brewed and is currently available nowhere else) on September 7th, 2013.

Beer is a reddish/amber/caramel color. Almost no head: just a tiny ring of foam clinging to the edges of the glass for dear life. Minimal sheeting.

Aroma - fruity melanoidin character. Slight peppery note as well.

Flavor: sweet apricots/plums, big toffee mid taste, peppery and bitter on finish.

Medium bodied, low carbonation.

Best thing called a "scotch ale" with Stone's name on it. Wouldn't mind wider availability on this one. (573 characters)

On draft at stone liberty station.
Darkish amber red in colour with no head.
No overwhelming smell that I noticed.
Malty sweet taste with a strong alcohol aftertaste. Slight toasted taste but nothing overpowering.
Thin mouth for a beer of this strength. (257 characters)

Purchased this beer at the Stone employee store in escondido in a growler.

Poured into a snifter within 24 hours of purchasing the growler. Poured a caramel amber type color. Very minimal head

Aroma: Sweet caramel notes, a little fruity like a fig note, and a tiny bit of the boozy-ness.

Taste: More sweet carmel notes, toffee, almost a chewy moth feel to it, medium to low carb, maybe after being in the growler, great finish on this beer really enjoyable!

Tastes like another! (485 characters)
