Amber with a fizzy head. Malty, general complexion. Soft aroma--aged quite a bit; extraordinarily subdued. Not sticky or hoppy; not typical of Stone and West Coast varieties of barleywine. Decent. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2007

RBSG 2007. Thanks to Winston for providing this rare treat. Although, when it is said and done, I wasn’t overly impressed by Stone Brewing with this one. Pours to a simple brown chestnut body with a thin white head. The aroma is weeds from a farm and English hops. Not overly impressed by the aroma. The flavor is sweet pale malts, grassy/weedy hops, nougat. Not overly impressive. The palate is sweet and sticky. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2011
messy amber, light head. heavy cardboard, caramel. Flavor has light hop and still some malt left, caramel and burnt sugar, light chocolate on slick, oxidized body. Not great, but flavor has survived some and its still nice in its own right.

Pours a dark golden apricot color with golden orange hues anda one finger off-white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Surprisingly hoppy aroma with hints earthy pine along with subtle oxidized cardboard, boozy alcohol and sweet malt. Lots of caramel, toffee and nut.
Boozy with some dry, earthy, resinous hops that give off hints of pine needle. A bit too hot with lots of sweet booze. Slightly oxidized with a sweet malt backbone giving off hints of caramel, toffee and rye.
Overall this was decent but way past its prime. Surprisingly the hops have held up and are only slightly stale but the oxidization is a bit too heavy hurting the overall flavor. His was probably very good when fresh but that is not the case at this stage.

Thanks to El Gaucho for sharing this rare treat at the 2007 RBSG. In the aroma I get loads of sweet potatos. Flavor has brown sugar, mandarin orange, and alcohol. I would be interested to see what happens to this after a few years of aging. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 26, 2007
RGSG- Amber color, light head. Nose is rough, alcohol. Body is dark fruit, a little strong and the alcohol is a little overwhelming. Not bad. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(~’06) @PilsnerPeters-22oz bottle-pours a light tan ring for a head and hazy copper color. Aroma is spice/herbal hops, secondary medium malt-caramel. Taste is spice/herbal hops bite, secondary medium malt-caramel. Shaftie (218) - , Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Shared by markwise, danka. This beer was quite enjoyable due to a lack of notes that’s all I’ve got for ya. The bottle has the typical long-winded Stone flavored text and was passed around and enjoyed as much as the beer itself.
