Horn Dog Barley Wine Style Ale

Dark orange pour, typical for the style with minimal head and some, but very little lacing. Typical BW appearance.
Aroma is all dark fruit. Smells a bit like a doppelbock with those very distinct dried fruit aromas coming through strong.
Mouthfeel is very viscous and lubricant like. Slightly off-putting, you probably couldn’t drink a lot of this beer for that reason alone. Lots of alcohol all over the place and it is quite prominent, but I don’t mind that (in fact I expect it) in this style. Slightly unbalnced becasue of the alcohol randomness.
Definite “sipper” for me, OK example of the style but there are better.
