Draft. Dark amber with large rocky light brown head taht lasted most of the brew. Complex aroma with heavy malt , grain and alcohol tone. Body medium creamy with a light alcohol finish. Good flavor and great sipping brew.

This is the strongest beer I’ve ever had. This is like the beer version of the Chantico at Starbucks because you had to sip it for a while. It’s stronger than La Fin du Monde. I had this last night at some place, but I don’t know what vintage it is.

Lotsa head, reasonable honey-color with an awesome honey and pineapple aroma. Taste is the same as the smell, only slightly muted, but for the hops, and alcohol. Pretty good tasting, but it’s hard to live up to its smell . $4.75/22oz

Great barleywine style brew from reliable Stone. Warms you up from the first sip. Nice murky amber pour with a nose of hops, malt, and some caramel. Taste similar but the alcohol becomes a little more persistent. Very tasty. Thanks to brewbandit for this one.

Nice light amber orange ,white head dissapears quickly leaving a slight film that the bubbles seek as I sip.Nice citrus hop aroma.Taste is sweet malt balanced with a lot of hops.. orange and grapefruit when you swallow.A little more refined than bigfoot

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 this is a nice change up from the double bastard I have been drinking. It’s a slightly more elegant beer with a pleasant thick mouth feel.

The aroma was nice w/ dark fermented fruit, citrus, and flowers. The flavor was a nice orange zest and grapefruit on the tail end w/ a slight hint of flowers and pine. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ thick head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light and creamy. This is the ’04, but I also tried the ’05 and I didn’t like it as much. I gave it a 7,3,6,3,12.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Crystal clear, orange ale with a fruity and malty nose with notes of butterscotch, toffee and caramelized pineapple. The flavor is mostly the same with additional undertones of alcohol and orange peel. Full-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, sweet finish. Top notch brew!
