Flying Dog Horn Dog

We continued our Flying Dog tasting with Horn Dog, which is Flying Dog's Barleywine style ale. The beer is aged for a minimum of three months before it is packaged. It pours a brown color with a thin, tan head. The nose is quite malty and the malt and sugars continuing into the first sip. The middle is slightly dry with more malts. The finish has chocolate on it and is nice and short while leaving you wanting another sip. Horn Dog is a really nice dessert barleywine that is smooth all the way through. This beer is well worth trying, but at 10.2% ABV it is a beer made for sipping.
