colore ambrato scuro opalescente schiuma bianca sottile... naso delicatissimo: frutta secca cereali caramello... estremamente bilanciata al palato, gli 11,26% totalmente coperti... finale lungo e molto morbido... incredible!

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Amber, caramel color, decent aroma, a little floral, honey. Very smooth, rich, a little sweet and a slight burn, but very drinkable. Maybe a little safe, lacking complexity, but very enjoyable.

Dark amber color with a small head. Aroma is caramel, wood and molasses. Taste is caramel, wood, orange, fusel, burnt, boozy. Dry. Disapointing but ok.

From bottle. Part of April Dayton Beertasting event. Pours dark amber with large tan head. Aromas of toasted malt, toffee and hops. Excellent barley wine with slightly bitter finish. Love the Stonies.

Orange/brown hue. Smells of hops and sweet malt. Well balanced with the hops subsiding into the maltinesss. The bitterness lingers on the lips. Very light for 11%.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2005
2005. Cellar Temp. Orange red with and effervescent tan head. Big aroma of candy apples and fresh raspberry. Full frontal assault on the first sip. Super bitterness crawls into the middle and tears #$@& up. Feel like the flavors are getting a bit bullied, they are there but I can’t pick them out of the bitterness. Very surprising after the gentle and enticing aroma. Now, the bitterness is very strong, but strangely not out of balance. As this beer rounds over time I would guess it will improve.

Stone never ceases to amaze me......awesome brew after awesome brew! Sweet malt with hnts of apple and orange flavored citrus hops turn this potent brew into a fruity punch with a kick. With a high ABV, this brew will kick you in the teeth if abused. Thanks to Peggy for introducing me to this style of ale.

Sparf (185) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2013
Enastående fruktig, aning vinös doft med inslag av torkade fikon, vanilj och karamelliserat plommon. Aning läder i bakgrunden också. Vackert kopparröd färg och ett utmärkt skum med ovanligt lång halveringstid för stilen. Den för barley wine så karaktäristiska sötman bryts här av med en rejäl dos humlebeska, som framför allt drar åt tall och citrus. Annars märks toner av läder, vanilj, ek och en lite saltaktig avrundning. Kroppen är fyllig, silkesaktig och varm. Dock utan att alkoholen tar över. Tvärtom är de 11 procenten bra tillbakadrivna för att inte förstöra upplevelsen. Tyvärr tar beskan över alltför mycket i eftersmaken där den dödar alla andra, mer subtila toner.

Overall a good barleywine, but it wasn't particularly unique. Maybe I was expecting too much. It is pretty hoppy...
