Stone Old Guardian Barleywine 2010 Release

March 20, 2010

The 2010 Old Guardian Barleywine from Stone Brewing is a top notch beer.  It clocks in at over 11% ABV, but is smooth and very drinkable.  It pours a burnt orange color with a decent head that lasts to the bottom of the glass.  A nice fruity aroma with some hops floweriness and a malty backbone.  The caramel maltiness really came through in the flavor.  I had this a few weeks ago when I was snowed in one night and it was the perfect cold weather beer.  8/10.
