The Best Barleywine? SF Weekly's Blog, SFoodie, Picks a Winner: North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale

SFWeekly‘s Blind Tasting for Best Barleywine:
North Coast Brewing Company Old Stock Ale (Fort Bragg, Calif.): 9 points. Honey- and rose-colored and with minimal head, this was the panel’s uncontested favorite. Nothing about the beer screamed “barleywine,” but the marked aromas of applejack, cherry, oak, bourbon, and bread, along Old Stock Alewith hot flavors of boozy fruit, caramel, and very faint smoke, earned it the warmest reception.
