This beer is criminally underrated (as of the date of this review). Bottled and bought within the last 30 days. Hop forward in the aroma and palette with very interesting notes, which altogether provide a very well balanced beer. Probably not a traditional barleywine in the strictest sense, but goddamn is this drinkable. Will definitely buy again.
