Stone Collaboration with Alesmith Brewing and Mikkeller Brewing
Belgian Style Triple Ale, 8.7% ABV
This collaboration ale was between the two California breweries (Stone and Alesmith) and Mikkeller Brewing in Denmark. The taste of this beer kind of reminded me of Stone’s Double Bastard meets Rogue’s Double Dead Guy.
Appearance: poured out hazy golden amber with a thin cream colored head. Head dissipated within a minute or so
Smell: Definite tropical fruit and bread like presence, some hops and malt.
Taste: The alcohol in this hit me fairly quickly. I got the malt and hops, just a slight piney like taste but not overly bitter. The tropical fruits...perhaps mango, banana, pineapple, were also present
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, not overly carbonated
Drinkability: a little too alcohol present for my taste, but still a good tasting brew
I consider this a fairly decent beer. If I were to grade it, I would give it a “B”.
