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%.

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.

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

dolemite77 (184) - Maryville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2008
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.

ElDuderino (184) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - APR 23, 2009
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.

Bonster (182) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2010
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
