Had this brew before but sampling right now on 8/7/13. Pours a very dark brown with about a 1-finger off white head that leaves good lacing when sipped. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part with a light hint of caramel with a slight nutty flavor. The taste is exactly the same and is very pleasing and smooth to drink. No bad aftertaste. Great anytime of the year and is available every season.

Third Stone Brown is a very solid Brown Ale. I am a big Brown Ale fan so I may think more highly than others.

Smell- The smell is actually not that great. It's does not great you well. Smells kind of dirty in a way with roasted malt.

Taste- The taste is much different from the smell. This beer has a great roasted caramel and toffee taste. This beer also went down very smooth and could probably put away a six pack of these. Loved it.

I recommend this beer to anyone that enjoys dark beer.
