hot damn! NClambicguy you down played this guy, this is fantastic. i’m a firm believe that the uglier the barleywine the better the beer, this guy pours an amazing murkey brown. flavor is off great, dark fruits toffee vanilla and slight hops. this guy is tasty and worth checking out

thanks NCbarleywineguy for sending this over!
You don’t think it’s a touch too hoppy currently? I haven’t had one in a few months, but was waiting for that to die down some.

With a year on it,.... really damn good!

With 3 years on it.......



Not good at all. I powered through maybe 3 oz, then dumped it. So sad.

Maybe the lesson is cans just don't hold up.
Damn, I have a few year vertical going. The bottles with the old white/yellow label used to hold up really great after a few years. :(
