Beer Revolution - flying solo

At Beer Revolution, waiting for my softball team (shut up) to arrive
and talk killer strategy. While I'm here, I'm trying 50/50 Old
Conundrum Barleywine (9% ABV), and it is delicious! Slightly muddy,
amber colour. Smells strongly of alcohol, but the flavour is subtle.
Sweet, but not TOO sweet the way most barleywines are. Tastes and
smells slightly of dried cherries. A little hoppy - just the right
amount. I usually don't like barleywines much - I think I have a new
favourite! The only problem is that it's so good, and tastes so
gentle, it's easy to forget it's 9%. This could be a problem!
