    It's better than the 11th and 12th, but nothing will ever top the 10th Anniversary!

    Never knocked it Perhaps you might after having the 13th? BTW, I still have a few of those in the fridge since last year. I'll have to check up on them and see what a year's time has done.

    The 13th is great in the nose and taste, but the finish is what's missing. Otherwise, it'd be a stellar brew!

    in the fridge? I keep mine in the closet. all I need is a frosty cold mug and it will turn out great.

    most stouts aren't supposed to be chilled, btw.

    anyway, I had the 12th earlier this year. it definitely aged well. I should break it out again soon.

    Nice. I prefer stouts just near room temperature, so I'll let it sit 20-30 minutes after pulling it out of the fridge. It's the only place I have to keep the temperature at a moderate level. I gotta get to those Stone 12's and see whats up.

    ok, I had the 13th last night. nothing bad happened.

    and so, on a serious note...

    this beer is darker than I expected. it turned a caramalized color with a beige head. the aroma isn't strong but a healthy whiff of barley and hops. something about it tells me that this is not something new.

    it was quite malty, not too syrupy nor bitter although it did give a little bite on the tongue. I finished it through easily and did enjoy the brew, but again as I said before, it is nothing new, not a knock-out by any means like last year's 12th.

    as I have bought a case of each of the Stone's anniversary specials in the last few years, this beer is not going to make me run back and do the same.

    now, if anyone could, find the name of this 13th Anniversary brew, aside from it being, albeit tongue-in-cheek, called the Triskaidekaphobia Ale.
