Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This is the third release in our 2012 Provisions Series Local Collaborations Series. We've teamed up with our great friends at TAPS Brewery out of Brea for this beer and we made one of our most complicated beers to date. An amalgamation of a barley wine with a traditional stein beer, this strong, brown ale has an extra level of caramel complexity brought on by our use of granite rocks that were heated to 900º and added to the wort along with a generous addition of date sugar for added gravity. A Stein's Throw is rich with fruity esters and toffee richness, but finishes dry after being fermented with proprietary yeast strains from both The Bruery and TAPS.

A : Pours medium brown/purple color with an initial khaki colored cap. The head fades fast leaving minimal bubbles and a scarce amount of lacing

S: A healthy offering of dark fruits; figs, prunes, raisins, plums and some dates. A little booze sting is noticed, some candy sugar is present but the dominant flavors are dark fruits with a finish that is a bit sticky with some cocoa and lingering dark fruits

M: Lower carbonation on the mouthfeel, sordove sweet, somewhat sticky, medum bodied with plenty of candy sugar and dark fruits to grace the palate.Feels very similar to a undercarbed Belgian Dark Ale

O: Different, and good! I enjoyed this long time want and extra from Ehammond1

3.5/5  rDev -2.2%

A: poured into a snifter to a deep amber with a small off white head that is quick to fade to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of caramel, toffee and fruity esters. slight alcohol as well
T: tastes of caramel, toffee, some fruity flavors and a bit sugary. swallow brings a bit of alcohol, more caramel sweetness, another hint of fruitiness, and a little bitterness
M: somewhat thick and full in the mouth but not chewy. soft but firm carbonation is adequate.
O: Not bad, but not great. A bit too sweet and lacking balance and complexity. Decent flavors but it doesn't stand out.
