Default Old Guardian 2008 Clone?

I emailed the guys at Stone last week with no response, so I'll open it up to the board. Is anyone familiar enough with Stone's Old Guardian Barley Wine 2008 to have a clone recipe? I really enjoy it, but as I'm sure time (and money) is running out, this beer will be harder to come by. Can anyone help me out?


Primary: Norwegian Farmhouse Ale

Kegged: Bohemian Pilsner; Altbier; Vienna lager; Schwarzbier; Citra/Calipso IPL; Dry Stout

Bottled: Grodziskie; Sterling Patersbier (homegrown); Mosaic Session Brett; Saison Americain; Session Saison

According to the 2008 tasting notes, they used EKG and First Gold. IBUs are listed at 95 on their beer overview page.


BYO has published Great Divides Old Ruffian recipe and I bet that grain bill would get you pretty close....
