2005 bottle. Pours bright amber with a medium sized off-white head, which leaves nice layers of lacing. Aroma of sweet prunes, earthiness, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and somewhat fruity at first, but then the overstated hops flavors and alcohol astringency take over. Pretty simple for a barleywine. Not altogether unpleasant, but Stone has finally dissapointed me. Maybe this will benefit from some age.

Bomber. Winter 2004 bottle. Pretty alcoholic...somewhat harsh yet delicious. Pretty interesting since it is about 18 months old. Lots of malt in the nose and flavor but quite a bit of bitterness has held up. Good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Bottle. Pours nice looking amber, ruby with nice head. Strong roasty aroma. Bold, flavorful, complex, malty flavor, some smoky notes, very hoppy as well. Very aggressive but well balanced. Strong.

AlexDonovan (14) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle, 2005. Crushing. Somewhat similar to my beloved 03 but ramped up, especially in malt. Drinkable fresh, but would probably be best with years of cellaring. Not recommended to pound the last third of the bottle. (Long story, even longer morning the next day).

CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2005
Huge tiramisu nose and full of flowers from australia. The taste did not let anyone down especially superman because he can fly anyway.

3.8
Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Sweet nose with hints of brandy, underlying hoppyness. Reddish to amber colored brew, small off-white head. Very sweet flavor, fruity, alcohol, quite boozy, but its nice.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2005
04 Bottle. Orange amber with short lived head. Nose was dark fruits with sappy pine hops and caramel. Taste was the same, with alcohol lingering on the palate. Not as great as other stone offerings.
