One of the first to try this one out. I think the brewer told me it was called Barely Legal Barleywine, though it go up a few more percent to be barely legal in that regard. This one was quite fresh but up to par for barleywines. I've had very few on tap and this one hit the spot. Would like to get cellar this but would have to get a growler. Would love to see French Broad bottle eventually.
