    Has anyone tried this years batch of Winter Warlock yet?
    Even though it doesn't get very high ratings, I am a fan of it having purchased 2 growlers and 4 or 5 bombers last winter. I think that it's quite tasty.
    However, I drank a bottle of the 2013 and it was drastically different...as in a different style of beer.

    I know my barleywines because its one of my favorite styles that I drink often.
    This was a lager.
    It was light golden in color.
    It had massive head that dissolved fairly quickly.
    Not malty at all.
    It tasted like a lager.

    Was there a mix up at the brewery? Did they fill the wrong bottles? Do I win a prize for finding the secret bottle?
    I am positive that this is what happened or else the recipe has drastically been changed.

    Any ideas are appreciated.
