Hmm... Not sure how this is supposed to be a barleywine. Has a pretty strong bitterness from the overly burnt make. Very thin and lacks that resinous caramaly malt that most barleywines poses. Has some bourbon notes. Kind of a sour. Pretty underwhelming.Earned the Untappd 11th Anniversary badge! Earned the The Wine of Beers (Level 8) badge!
This just misses on most everything a barleywine should be. I WANT to like it....but the body's too light, there's zero sweetness (to my palate), the ABV is too low, and so forth. Maybe too long in the barrel?
