pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Stone old guardian aged in bourbon barrels. Tap at smallbar Fullerton for Stone takes over the taps.... Pours a mostly opaque reddish caramel brown with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of sticky dark fruits and caramel maltiness with a smaller subtle bourbon feel and more of a vanilla presence on the backend. bourbon is subtely felt. Flavors followed suit to a tee with a predominance of sticky dark fruit, toffee, and vanilla. Just a hint of bourbon with a semi-bitter finish. A little spicy heat on the backend. Pretty subdued barrel presence. Nice but. Body has held up nicely overall. 8/4/7/4/15

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2010
2005. Nice big vanilla-y oak aroma comes on strong. Still a good amount of hops in this, but they have been rounded off beautifully by time and the oaky vanilla barrel influence.

Tap 2004 ed. at Alewife Baltimore for Stone Total Tap Takeover. Poured a hazy, deep amber with a not much head and little lace. Amazing bourbon nose comes through with toasted coconut, vanilla, baked peaches. Taste is outstanding: fireside cordial qualities bring sweet booziness, warming spicy alcohol, subtle bourbon, vanilla, chewy caramel and toffee. All around outstanding. Body is soft, powerful, lovely.
