I like this beer for no other reason than you could call it the "OG" without hesitation. When you pour this beer out, the first thing you notice is it's rich impressive amber color, it really glows. At 11.4% alc this beer exemplifies everything extreme. The hops are strong and bitter and they're mirrored by very sweet malts. The flavor reminds me of some dark rich berrry, along the lines of chocolate malts and the hops burst far back on the tongue, lingering and developing as they dissipate. A beautiful and strong aroma, those who are ready will definitely enjoy this robust barley wine.
