Stone Juxtaposition Black Pilsner

Stone made a beer with Brew Dog. I can't get away from those guys. It might have something to do with the good beer that they make.

Label stuff: Mystical Cerberus was a three headed canine entity who guarded the gates of Hades to prevent those who dared cross the River Styx from ever escaping. We soon got bored guarding the gates (fabled gates are hard to guard) something tells me that you have a fabled sex life as well. and decided to brew some hardcore beer instead. If you were really hardcore and had some stones, you'd call it blacksploitation pilsner. Stone, Cambridge, and Brew Dog; a modern day Cerberus. We formed a singular, ardent brewing entity complete with three heads. We were determined to create a legend all of our own.

Our juxtaposing collaborative intent was to completely redefine the lager genre. One valiant attempt to claim back which faceless corporate monstrosities steal. The Waaaaasssuuuup guys had faces. Maybe Foucoult was right, perhaps the picture does hold us captive. Please stop randomly quoting philosophy. Seriously, stop. We wanted to smash the picture. This beer is designed to prevent those who cross the river Styx from even contemplating escaping. Why go back? Since you are such a classics expert, you know that drinking water from the river Styx causes one to forget their past and never leave. Yes, I am a giant nerd. We much prefer brewing from guarding mythological gates anyway.

Somebody who works at Brew Dog is trying to prove to his dad that a double major in philosophy and classics was not a waste of time.

How does it taste: It's damn tasty. It is black like a stout. I think that it tastes a little bit like a bourbon ale, and I love me some bourbon ales.

Abv: 10%.
Cost: $8.99 for a 12 oz bottle.
Grade: A
Cost Adjusted Grade: B+ You gotta give me more beer for $9.
