Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine 2010
Seeing as my friends and I were thoroughly impressed with the Stone Brewery, we dropped back in for dinner on our way home from Las Vegas to San Diego. To start the evening, I ordered a glass of Old Guardian Barley Wine 2010. The beer has a dark red amber color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with toffee accents. The taste is sweet and very bitey, with toffee and caramel adding big flavors to this beer. There is a light hop finish. The alcohol content is 11.26% ABV. I thought the Old Guardian Barley Wine 2010 was an amazing beer and a great example of a barley wine.
