Clear gold in color, the Stone Beer from Brimstone Brewing has a rich hoppy flavor accompanied by an underlying caramel sweetness along with a full mouthfeel. The Original Gravity is listed as 1.050 with a resulting alcohol by volume (abv) level of 5.0%. The bottles are freshness dated and the label proclaims "All Brimstone beers are made with 100% pure ingredients, without additives, preservatives, or pasteurization."

Slight sediment is visible through the wax-sealed 12-ounce bottles of the vintage October 1998 Brimstone Big Ale. A hazy, deep amber in appearance, its first impression is formed from the intense malty, estery aroma. Big and bold, with lasting estery/fruity flavors, this brew is reminiscent of classic "big" Belgian ales, especially the noticeable alcohol character in the finish.
