Stone old guardian 2008 vintage
Poured from 22 oz bottle into mad elf tulip
Appearence hazy copper/orange
Smell lots of sweet malt and raisins
Taste sweet malt, raisins, caramel, bitter orange peel, pepper
Mouthfeel thick and syrupy, high carbonation helps balance
Overall nice barley wine aged well, would have like to try it fresh but can't travel back in time.
