Ok here is the thing, I got to try this at my buddy Stu's house in Jupiter FL, He had a bottle of this aging for about 10 years. Poured into a taster glass, pours a pale rustic amber color with a minimal head, pretty nice looking for being such an old beer. Smell is amazing, tarty bread, ripe grapes, watermelon, lemon zest, grass...this beer was exploding with some serious smells truly amazing, I am not sure the age had alot to do with this amazing product. Taste is just as good as the smell, has a nice sweet taste of summer with a ripe grape flavor with a bit of a hop bitterness toward the end, even after all those years the hops held up. If you can find a rare gem like this do yourself some justice and drink raising a glass to the beer gods.

The bottle carries a lengthy explanation that, before the advent of iron kettles, beer was brewed by dropping hot rocks into the wort to caramelize some of the sugars, and this beer recreates that brewing technique. OK, well, not a bad beer - long on the caramelized aspect in the flavor (must have gotten the rocks pretty hot). Sort of a robust brown ale, hard to really pigeon-hole. Not a gimmick beer - more of an interesting experiment, but not something I see making a foothold in the industry.
