Well this is a revamped version of Grumpy Old Dennis last reviewed in 2004. This is a big barley wine with lots of hops (like a Foghorn or Bigfoot) This was close to the end of the keg so the beer had matured a bit but the smoothness and complexity was amazing. I have had all the big beers from Fish but this is the most complex of the bunch. Too bad it is only on tap and seasonal.
