I’ve had this bottle kicking around for a few months. Not being familiar with Barley wines, I bought it in the summer before learning it would be best enjoyed in colder times. So I waited. And it got colder. I cracked it open the other day, trying not to let months of anticipation blind me to simply tasting this beer.
I’ll keep it short. It wasn’t bad. I don’t, however, need to drink it again. The jury is still out on whether my dislike is for Barley Wine in general, or this particular Barley Wine. Further research is probably necessary.
