The Mothman Barley Wine is Bottled, and is Actually Decent

It took forever to boil. It sat in secondary for months. It got down to 1.011. Someone forgot to reyeast it. But all in all, the Mothman Barley Wine (MB0027) turned out surprisingly well. Though a bit undercarbed at this present juncture and being completely unsure whether or not it will ever carb up, the beer turned out. It has a prominent caramel flavor, a mouth-puckering bitterness, and a thirst-quenching dryness that makes this 9.0%+ quaff extremely dangerous. It was a hit recently at Brew Club, which surpassed any expectations I had of it. I'm glad there's still a bunch left.
