Massively hopped, balances out the chewy date flavors. Formidable and deep, and can clearly use time in the cellar to mellow out.

Quite good. Doesn't really seem like a barley wine to me beyond the ABV. Intense, syrupy, but nonetheless balanced. Like a triple IPA. It was so good with Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream that I contemplated making a milkshake out of it.
