Pours a murky caramel color with a small 1 inch bone head that fades to an oily film on the top of the beer. Smells of caramel, toffee, sweet malt, and some dark fruits. Very inviting smells. This beer smells very much like a barleywine to me. Taste is very much like the smell and is of caramel, toffee, and sweet/brown sugary malt. Medium bitterness on the palate with each sip. There is a very good balance between the sweetness and the bitterness in this beer. A good level of carbonation leads to a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a most excellent beer from Stone that I like much better than Arrogant Bastard. I am frustrated that I only got one bottle of this when it came out. I think that this will age very well and I will be on the lookout for more bottles for my cellar.
