It's just you. I like the hog heaven a lot. I gave it an 8, 'cause there are better BW's out there.

I wouldn't say an armpit but I would say I wasn;t very impressed. It was good but nothing special.

It must be you, because it certainly doesn't taste that way to me. I like it, very much.

I had last year's edition, and it was pretty good.. Nowhere close to armpit. However, I must disagree with BE... I tried Avery Czar RIS, and it was full of hot fusel flavors. Definately not the biggity bomb.

Aroma 8/10
Appearance 4/5
Flavor 8/10
Palate 4/5
Overall 16/20
Total 4/5
ABV 9.2% to 10%
22 oz. brown bomber.
Pours out a deep copper color, with a fast fading head. Hops aromas hit you first, then the sweet malts kick in. Fresh, grainy aroma to it. Smells like Chinook or Nugget hops used in it. Tastes of hops at first. Piney, resinous, floral tasting. Nice malt backbone to it as well.Fairly well balanced, but leaning towards the hops side.
Coats the tongue with a syrupy sweetness. A pretty good barleywine in my opinion. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif)

Tried this one last night.

I gave it a six, mainly because of thin mouthfeel and lack of personality. The beer wasn't bad, it just didn't stand out.

The bottle I purchased, however, was dusty and out of refrigeration, so maybe poor storage conditions killed it's potential.

Hog Heaven is a monster for damn sure. How much you like it depends on how much you like hops and sticky sweet barleyine. For my money, I prefer Bigfoot but you can't go wrong with a little Hog on the occasion.

I actually prefer Hawg Heaven to Bigfoot but I have never let BF properly age , I've always drank the current year.

I had it on tap @ Barleys in Columbus last week, and it was every bit as good as the first time I had it years ago.
A solid 8.
