Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine Style Ale 2015 Classic Release

This is a classic American barleywine, with upfront notes of resinous hops, citrus oil and pine atop a rich, caramel-malt core. Fruity tones come to the fore on the palate, with enticing flavors of raisins, figs and candied orange peel that mingle harmouniously with sweet tones of burnt sugar and toffee. Smooth and seductive in feel, the finish boasts a pleasant bitterness to counter the sweet spice and dried-fruit flavors. Enjoy through 2021. Lauren Buzzeo
