I suppose I was comparing them as barrel aged high gravity beers not as specific types.
I know FN Single Barrel uses sherry barrels and the Bourbon County uses, well, bourbon barrels and that is different as well as barley wine vs stout.
IMO they are the same style
of beer though I know not the same type
I am fine if you don't agree with that. I think one of the recent things with beer now is people get too caught up in trying to define and catagorize every one as being a "this". Yes most beers have their roots as something but we are getting way past traditional brewing and aging methods now.
Edit: And no I am not trying to say there isnt a signifigant difference between a barley wine and a stout as far as types of beer go, I am just saying they are taking all kinds of beers and doing similar ageing processes now. Mainly with high gravity beers.
I like almost all styles of beer, some better than other depending on season.
