Really amazed of how great the hog is, the name is a bit misleading but I recommend it to anyone that likes to kick back and chill with one of these after a long day of work

Cloudy dark coppery color in the tall tulip. Nicer than average foam. A funny musty, woodsy smell. Tangy on the tongue and well carbonated.

The taste is not like most Barleywines I've ever encountered. It's more like some of the really dank IPAs but with the malt dialed up. The one pleasant feature is the caramel malt flavor that sinks quickly into the hop soup. After a touch of sweetness on the lips it turns very dry. The leafy, herbal, bitter mushroom taste is quite dominant. The plentiful hops leave a very bitter aftertaste.

I can't find much to like about this. Even the hop flavor is not something I want to muck up a cheap lager with by mixing with this stuff. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine for eleven bucks.
