Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

4 year old bottle. Fairly effervescent. Nice bronze color. Smell is dark fruits. Sweet. Flavor follows the same profile. Dates, raisin, fig, caramel. Zero signs of oxidation. Thin bodied. This was a great beer that aged fantastically. Probably peaking at this point. I'd drink it now if you can, or just send it my way :)

Been a while since a review was done on this one.

A - Beer pours a dark mahogany body with a one finger light tan head. The head doesn't stick around and minimal to no lacing to speak of.

S - A big helping of dark fruits like figs, dates and purple grapes. It really reminds me of opening a (pick a dark fruit base) ocean spray drink. After the dark fruits fade, there is some candied sugar and caramel.

T - Not a huge wave or progression of flavors. It's really like dark fruits (dates/figs) mixed in with a caramel and candied sugar base. The dark fruits dominate.

F - Medium bodied, low carbonation. A bit undercarbed in this area.

O - It's hard for me to find fault. The beer is unique. Dates/figs dominate, but a great base backs it all up.
