Tried this last night at the brewery. Malty and fruity backbone, a bit jammy, with a leafy hop bitterness. No booziness. Balanced. A solid English Barleywine.

On tap at the brewery, 5oz for $5. Sort of pricey if you ask me but I sure was glad I didn't get more than five ounces, whew! Dark chestnut color, scant head which seems typical for the style. Aroma was odd, little malt, little syrup, meh. The flavor was very, very bitter and had a very strong licorice flavor to it. I wanted to like this but it was just rough. My buddy and I had a hard time finishing the snifter and kept passing it back and forth hoping not to have to finish it. This is the first Hogshead beer to really disappoint me. I will say that the alcohol flavors were nonexistent for such a strong beer. Also, I am not well versed in true English barleywine (had tons of American style barleywine) so maybe it is spot on for the style.
