Landed this through a trade about a year or two ago. Stoudt’s hasn’t brewed the barrel aged version in quite a while so this must be an old bottle.

Copper color with a huge white foamy head that came out of nowhere like the old abominable snowman sneaking up on an unsuspecting victim. Huge pop when I pulled the cork – didn’t expect that from such an old bottle.

Some nice barley, malt, and surprisingly some hops as well. Smells like I’m hiking in deep dense forest during a snowstorm. I can almost smell the old abominable lurking in this beer just like he does in depths of the woods.

Barley and malt up front with a nice hop finish. This beer has held up very well. A big thanks to Stoudt’s for having the courage to venture into the snowman’s territory and bottle this rare gem.

Chances are I will never have this beer again… especially with this kind of age on it. Very smooth and enjoyable. Def a sipper. Split with R Moe Nay and Greg. We went out onto the balcony and called for the old abominable to give him a sip… but our yells did not reach him.

I have had this bottle since Xmas 2010. Stoudts is a great stop after going to Hershey.

Nice copper color with a great nice white foam head.

A nice barley smell.

The barley at first with a nice hop finish.

A nice smooth mouthfeel

This is a great English Barleywine.
