Wailing Wench

Dark mahogany pour, with a splendid looking rocky head. Some sticky lace.
This is a rich, thick and substantial beer that reminded me much more of a Barleywine than the DIPA.
Loads of rich hops greet the nose, with that classic grapefruit, citrus sourness, but also with oodles of complex malts. This drank really heavily and it punched every bit of its 9.00 ABV.
Mouthfeel was oily and syrupy like a Barleywine. I think I may have been deceived by the beer since I drank a really light, but hoppy IPA just prior to this. The first one was light and refreshing, this one came down as being really robust and quite harsh in (perhaps unfair) comparison.
Need to try this one again in a different context and I suspect I would like it even more than I did this time.
