That's close to what I was going to say. 

My first thought was I have no idea but please tell us what it tasted like after you wake.  8^)

I agree.  I did not pump this into my software, but at 1.100 this is almost definitely an American style barleywine.  And looks like a great one at that.

+1.  That could be a "leftovers" beer that comes out damn good.

Barleywine is a real style of beer.  Here's the details:

I was thinking maybe Imperial Pennsyltucky Common or Imperial Pale Porter. But barley wine works too!  ;)

Most of my beers are 1.100/1090 and their always highly drinkable compared to most barley wines I try. But I'd be sown for a big brown...
