Quick review - much hoppier than I expected it to be. I think I like English Barleywines more.
Edited after my fourth bottle.
I poured it in a standard American pint glass as that's the type I keep in rotation. The color was red/brown with a creamy head that stuck around and thicker than just left lacing as I drank.
It smelled very strongly of hops.
The taste revealed that the beer was as hoppy as the smell led me to believe with a strong bitter character as well. The maltyness is what led me to edit my review. I find that it tastes much better to me when enjoyed rather cold which is to say as it warms and develops into its true self, I like it less. As it warmed, it almost tasted salty.
The mouthfeel was medium thick and went down well, thinning as it warmed.
I am not a hops lover and the hops quality of this beer would prevent me from having it often much less having several.
