Ignore the BA Score on this one. There are raters on here who do not know / understand / love barleywines. This is barleywine perfection. Hops and malts, bitterness and sweetness in perfect balance. This is awesome - what could be better? Well, the price, perhaps. But this is worth the price. Beware the 11% ABV - in the midst of all this deliciousness, it can sneak up on you.
