This is a barleywine, so right there you know it's a sippin' beer. It's also fairly high in alcohol. I blame this beer for spoiling a quiet evening at home. I was watching one of my favorite new shows, Medical Investigation, relaxing on the couch and drinking this. 45 minutes in, I dozed off, missing the ending and not finding out who caused the flesh-eating bacteria to kill the patients. So, I have to say I didn't really enjoy this one. Plus, it was just too damn strong. I'm not really up to the level of barleywines yet. Does it make it an unfair review? Yup, but I have to rate it how I enjoyed it, not you.
