TheFullPint.com encourages you to write about your favorite beer. Whether it is a traditional review, or a fun article, we want to make you an Internet Beer Superstar. Wild Dog Barrel-Aged Horn Dog Barley Wine Style Ale 2007 by Flying Dog Brewery. Received a sample 12 oz bottle. Had the bottle slightly chilled, and poured into a wide mouthed short glass.
Appearance: A dark, thick black tea color. no real head, but thin white swirls float around the top. A noticeable sticky coating covers the glass after you have taken a few sips.
Aroma: Brown sugar and cereals. You get a small whiff of whiskey oak barrels.
Taste: Flavors of malty cereal, coca, and chocolate covered apricots. Puckering your mouth brings out the oakieness.
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation is there, and gives a nice unique texture. This brew is very thick and syrupy. Coats your mouth with all the nice flavors mentioned in the taste section.
Drinkability: This should be served during the dessert portion of your meal. One of the best, and most unique barley wine style ales ever. Flying Dog should make this at least an annual offering. If you are lucky enough to find this, keep in mind its off the beaten path of traditional barley wine style ales.
