My brother in-law picked up two bottles of this for me when he was in Florida. I don't get a lot of Cigar City Beer up in Wisconsin so I was excited to try it. I made sure to drink one bottle right away and stash the other one away for some aging.
This beer is definitely sweet but in my opinion, not overly so like some of the reviews on here suggest. I thought it had a fair amount of complexity with fruit, sugars and a subtle hop flavor melding together quite well.
I will say I have had better barleywines but this one was very solid.
