Purchased this along with Aleworks Old Numbskull for a beer club barleywine party. While better than some of the competition, I wasn't 'wow'ed by this. The hop bitterness seemed to actually detract from the dark, rich flavors instead of complement them. While still tasty, the clashing flavors don't do justice to how good this could have been. Maybe a different variety of hops? Fuggle or Goldings, maybe something less aggressive. I feel that this may have been a young bottle. Curious to think what a cellared bottle would mature into....
