I pulled a Telegraph Brewing Rhinoceros out of my beer fridge last night. It is a big (10% abv) barley wine. I have had my Rhinoceros for a few years, at least, and I don't remember where or when I bought it. It tasted fine, but I found it a bit of a slog. It was tight and astringent dry, permitting nothing more than periodic sips. (The glass of water after the beer was a relief.) The booze was upfront and unrelenting, like a Stephen Curry three-point barrage. There was some melon and stone fruit on the nose, but the strong malt presence wiped out much of the fruit flavor. I thought I tasted a pleasant woody flavor, though. I'm no barley wine expert, as I can think of only a few I've tried, so I don't know if Rhinoceros was true to style. I'm guessing it probably was, knowing Telegraph's quality. This copper giant was a pretty, big-foamed beer that I found serious, probably too serious for my mood. The beer lived up to its name because you don't mess around with a Rhinoceros.
