This is the strongest beer Iíve ever had. This is like the beer version of the Chantico at Starbucks because you had to sip it for a while. Itís stronger than La Fin du Monde. I had this last night at some place, but I donít know what vintage it is.

Lotsa head, reasonable honey-color with an awesome honey and pineapple aroma. Taste is the same as the smell, only slightly muted, but for the hops, and alcohol. Pretty good tasting, but itís hard to live up to its smell . $4.75/22oz

Great barleywine style brew from reliable Stone. Warms you up from the first sip. Nice murky amber pour with a nose of hops, malt, and some caramel. Taste similar but the alcohol becomes a little more persistent. Very tasty. Thanks to brewbandit for this one.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 this is a nice change up from the double bastard I have been drinking. Itís a slightly more elegant beer with a pleasant thick mouth feel.

The aroma was nice w/ dark fermented fruit, citrus, and flowers. The flavor was a nice orange zest and grapefruit on the tail end w/ a slight hint of flowers and pine. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ thick head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light and creamy. This is the í04, but I also tried the í05 and I didnít like it as much. I gave it a 7,3,6,3,12.

hopscotch (8841) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2005
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Crystal clear, orange ale with a fruity and malty nose with notes of butterscotch, toffee and caramelized pineapple. The flavor is mostly the same with additional undertones of alcohol and orange peel. Full-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, sweet finish. Top notch brew!

Pours light amber with almost no head. A classic sweet barley smell to it, that is the trademark of this style. Intense sweet barley taste to an odd, but good bitter taste. A long lasting changing aftertaste going from bitter back to sweet. Another nice stone beer.
