Unbelievable. Outstanding. Fantastic. 100 points. Guess I liked it! Subtle smoke. Buy this.

Hangover beer for the day. Really big strong taste. For 8 dollars it needs one. Definitely brought on a buzz by half the bottle. But it's big and difficult to drink fast. I'll probably have to put it back in the fridge to let it cool off some. "Cold beer tastes best." "You mean cold beer tastes less."

I like the style but not the execution. It's typical Stone, which I have yet to find appealing.

Belgo 2011, this version of old guardian used Belgian yeast, deliciously smooth after aging, caramel, toffee, fig, raisin, plum, so many flavor's! Slight hop bitterness on the finish. Incredible brew
