COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aborted batch of their Old Gnarleywine ended up tasting nearly as good as that they were hoping for, so they bottled it. God bless capitalism. OG 1.100 IBU 51.1

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2007
This had a tan brown color with a medium firmed head. The aromas had a nice hint of sweet caramel and the malt hopped aromas really pushed the finish. High in Alcohol but a nice effort.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
even with a very careful slow pour i ended up with lots of chunky yeast sediment in the glass. aroma of sweet caramel malts and brown sugar (big surprise). very sweet in your mouth...lots of sweet malt...just enough hops to keep it from being cloyingly sweet. solid, not spectacular. ill try it again in a year and see what happens with it.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
Bottled. Thanks Fredrik. Copper colour. Not the biggest of heads. Aroma is a bit rough with notes of almonds, sweet sugar and citric hops. Somewhat raw in mouth but very tasty with a sweet, malty backbone followed up with grapey hops and then finishing with a long, good bitterness. Bottle was 1/2 year old.

Bomber. Pours copper/brown with a medium just off white head. Aroma of sweet candy sugar. Taste of sweet candy sugar. A bit too cloying for me. Thought this was a brown ale by the name until I tasted it, then looked on this site to find out its a barley wine. I am a moron. I wasn’t in the mood for this heavy of a beer. Even if I was expeciting a Barley Wine its not that good.
