Probably my favorite non barrel aged BW.
YES! Such a delicious beer.Can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned yet:
Dammit, I wish CCB or other Tampa breweries would get back on english barleywines. That little six-month interlude we had with Church-BA Church-Leon was an exciting time for me. I absolutely love the style.
I feel the same way as you mostly, except sub 2012 BCBS for parabola.Don't get me wrong on Blendiculous, it's a very, very nice beer and I'm quite happy to have tried it. But like a lot of other hard to trade for beers, it didn't wow me enough over some more available things to absolutely want to seek it out again. I'm sure you won't be disappointed in it at all, you may even love it, but like I said I preferred Arctic Devil which can be ordered online.
Again, this is hardly exclusive to Blendiculous: I'd rather drink a 2012 Parabola than BCBVS, regardless of trade values, based on how they currently tasted to me. For one example.
