    Real Ale Sisyphus

    Man you should try Real Ale Sisyphus. I believe its one of the better Barleywines out there. If you can find an '07, you'll love it.

    That Old Foghorn is some great stuff, I have around that many aging now, but most are christmas ales. Nothing like a couple year old ale during the holidays.

    Then it wasn't just mine then huh. this is sad, as Old Stock past years have been one of the absolute best Bang/Buck old ales out there.

    what's up with that??? i've only poured a couple of the 2009 vintage - they've opened fine but i didn't find either as deep or well rounded as the 2006 & 2007. i'm hopeful the less impressive comparison relates to the prior vintages already having some age on em' when i acquired them. time will tell.
