A 2014 vintage.

Having this next to Aaron, this was quite disappointing. The beer was hot, watery with some spicy hops on the back. Some sweetness balances this beer out, but in general, tastes more towards an barrel aged American Barleywine.

had this at Kuhnhenn on tap about 1 month ago and it was really good. Not usually a barleywine guy, but due to being BB I liked it.
