This beer got 2nd place in the American Barleywine category of the Dixie Cup Homebrew competition. I am pleased with how the flavor has evolved over time, even though it is not exactly how I intended. The hops I used have subsided in flavor and aroma to almost nothing. Yet, the maltiness and alcohol content have combined to create a surprisingly smooth and dry taste for a beer with 11% alcohol.
