Stone of Arbroath has a rich, sweet malty aroma with mellow notes of plum and brown sugar. The mouthfeel has a creamy softness with highlights of toffee and intense caramel that are derived from a lengthy 90 minute boil which encourages caramelizing of dense wort sugars. These complemented by a subtle roast character that finishes with a mild acridity that pleasantly coats ones mouth. Coming in at a warming and subdued 8% ABV it will definitely ruffle many a kilt this spring.
The Stone of Arbroath will be available in 12oz cans from November thru March and is the new winter seasonal for DC Brau
- 2012: "For centuries the Drosten Stone has remained shrouded in mystery. Scholars can not agree on the ancient origin of the rock. The inscription “DROSTEN: IPEUORET [E]TTFOR CUS is just as much of an enigma as the stone itself. This beer as well, is such a conundrum. Please don’t ponder it’s existence for centuries as you would assuredly go insane. Just be happy it exists."
