Poured from bomber into goblet. Limited early 2010 release.
A: Rich glowing somewhat hazy deep amber coloring with nice head for barleywine. Heavy lacing apparent as well. Good looking brew.
S: Nice Stone nose dominated by citrus hop notes but a backing of toffee tinged malt. Nice nose.
T & M: From what I recall the 2010 release strikes me as being more balanced than the 2009 release. Up front malt and toffee notes readily apparent with nice Stone hop notes on the finish.
D: For a barleywine quite drinkable, Bigfoot is still my favorite Old Guardian is a darn fine example of the style.
Serving type: bottle
