October 2010. Dark amber color with a short head. Malt, dark fruit and alcohol aromas. A little too much alcohol burn, yet nice balance on the fruit.

I’m a big Stone fan but I’m not a fan of this style. Unfortunately Stone couldn’t win me over. Harsh barley wine flavor. Me no likey.

2012. while decent, i found it to still be a little hot with alcohol burn, even 2 years later. flavor profile was rather thin and bland too. nothing too exciting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark amber color with off-white head. Not great retention or lacing, but could’ve been a glass issue. Aroma is sweet with a lot of toffee in it. Alcohol is prominent ant ’bitey’ in the flavor. Home hop bitterness in it but definitely leans to the sweet, malty side. Long, sweet finish. Not my favorite style, but a good representative of it.

Pours a deep, hazy amber with a medium, off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of fruit and hops. Flavor is caramel malt, grassy hops, brown sugar, dark and citrus fruit, and some sweet alcohol on the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Smells fairly malty on the nose. Bitter on the tongue. Lots of alcohol burn. I dont even know why I buy barley wines. I hate this fucking style.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass, very nice beer with like the description says malt upfront with citrus, some earthy taste and sweetness finished with carbonation is very smooth and velvety and a nice warm finish
