A beautiful bold barley wine. Massive malt and hop notes. Silver Medal winner at the 2000 Great American Beer Festival in the Barley Wine category. Gold Medal winner at the 2002 World Beer Championships in the Barley Wine Category. Look for it in the first quarter of each new year. Can be cellared or enjoyed upon its release.

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.

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

Hazy orange beer with a minimal head. Lacing isn’t anything to write home about. Aroma is of grapefruit hops. Flavor is cascade dominated as well, with the malt supplying a nice caramel note to it. Palate is almost perfect. Soft full body, with the right amount of carbonation. With the hops supplying a dry, bitter end, you wouldn’t think this is a 10%+ beer. Very good.

2007 Vintage on tap at Sunset Grill, Copper body with tall frothy white head. Very sweet sugary aroma, like hard candy and rum. White rum, and lots of it. Flavors were very muted and sublte, dried cherries, blueberries, dates and sticky almost funky malts. Very heavy sugar, and really strong carbonation still. Quite nice.

Pours hazy amber with a nice aroma of hops and candy. Flavor is dominated by the powerfully sweet malt and bitter and sourness from the hops.

2010 vintage. Collosal tan head sits on top of a dark brown amber body. Nose is mostly caramel malt, citrus hops, and some spice. Quite mild taste and an easy drinker. Alcohol is well hidden, not too sweet or overpowering like some BW’s. Nice

2011 @ home 22 oz... Thick,medium brown to dark amber pour leads to a thin, tight, ivory head. Aromas of dried fruit and sweet malts. Alcohol is present with a smooth malt balance. I remember this one to be more hoppy and biting but this year seemed to smooth out. A descent barleywine, but doesn’t live up to Stone’s over-the-top hops that they sold me with. Trying the Belgo Tomorrow.

Figs, caramel, and fruit are heavy on the nose. Caramel is dominant on first taste. Finishes with a delightful hop bite but is very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2006. Suprisingly sweet and pleasant for a stone brew. Nice malty taste. Pretty hoppy, but not as outspoken as some of stone’s beers. The balance in this one is a rarity for stone. Solid effort.
