re: First bottle of Parish Grand Reserve

I thought it was a little on the malty side for a barleywine... certainly nothing like Bigfoot.

English varieties are quite different from the American efforts, what sets them apart is usually the American versions are insanely hopped to make for a more bitter and hop flavored brew, typically using American high alpha oil hops. English version tend to be more rounded and balanced between malt and hops, with a slightly lower alcohol content, though this is not always the case.

Agreed. The hops are certainly there, but it's not blurring the line between barleywine and double IPA, like Sierra Nevada Bigfoot or Stone Old Guardian.
