Guinness Open Gate Old Stock Ale

This beer says it is a blend of barley wine and imperial stout, but RB calls it an Old Ale:

Thoughts? Should this be changed to ASA?

Usually barley wine and imperial stout blends are under ASA.

Tastes like an old ale.

That’s a tough one. I think ASA makes sense as a catch all, but it does taste like an old ale.

Possible it could rate as an old ale if one of the two beers was new high alc and the other older . But that is a stretch.
Is there any real hard and fast rules for the types of beers used to make an Old Ale traditionally?
