I believe this was the 06. Tap at Small Bar Fullteron. Pours hazy amber with minimal head. Aroma of wood, vanilla, sweet malt, caramel. Good mix of the bourbon flavor, I thought it was well done.

On tap at the terrific, and very popular, Rattle’n’Hum 2010 Stone event. Tangy aroma. Smooth, nicely balanced flavors - sweetness and bourbon. Very good. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Stone old guardian aged in bourbon barrels. Tap at smallbar
Fullerton for Stone takes over the taps.... Pours a mostly opaque reddish caramel brown with a thin
soapy white head... Aroma of sticky dark fruits and caramel maltiness
with a smaller subtle bourbon feel and more of a vanilla presence on the backend. bourbon is subtely felt. Flavors followed suit to a tee with a predominance of sticky
dark fruit, toffee, and vanilla. Just a hint of bourbon with a semi-bitter
finish. A little spicy heat on the backend. Pretty subdued barrel
presence. Nice but. Body has held up nicely overall.

On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Stone event. Pours a ruby orange with a thin white head. Bourbon - tons of it, malt. Super sweet, very smooth. Delicate balance of barleywine and bourbon. Warm alcohol, smooth caramel and vanilla. Subtle and well done. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Draft, 2005 vintage. Minimal off-white head with clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, Bourbon, some grapefruit, light burn. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some Bourbon, alcohol burn. Sticky medium-full body. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2010
2005. Nice big vanilla-y oak aroma comes on strong. Still a good amount of hops in this, but they have been rounded off beautifully by time and the oaky vanilla barrel influence.
