I would say that's it's hop forward, but with slight, residual sweetness. Sweet barleywines aren't my bag, at all! All I can do is say, yet again, AHS American Barleywine-buy it, brew it!! You wont be disappointed!!
I have sampled Bigfoot 2010, and alls I gots to say is lookout!! Hanks Brrrrleywine may got you beat...(it was freakin' 22* here in SC when I brewed it-brrrrrr!).
