This beer certainly looked good but I felt that the flavor and defiantly the mouthfeel were off. Ok Im not a hop-head but it is not the HUGE hop presence I had a problem with. It has a residual sweetness that I found weird. It was almost a sugary sweetness not a malt sweetness. My wife thought the same thing, in fact she was the one who brought it up. Something that goes along with that is the mouthfeel, I thought it was a tad on the thin side, especially for having that much residual sweetness. It lacked that rich malt feel that one expects from a Barley Wine.
All right, if you are a hop-head this is going to be great beer, with its 100 IBUs and 2.5 lb./barrel Columbus dry hop. If however, you are a malt man you might be a little disappointed.
