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

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 22, 2006
Pours a beutiful red coper hue, small to no head. Sweet honey and flowery aroma. Taste is pine hops, honey, molases and red peppers. The alcohol is strong but it balances out the bitter and sour aftertaste. Very sweet and sour beer.. not my style but the alcohol made me warm and fuzzy all over... the second one was much better. .hicup!!

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
Bottle. Pours a somewhat rusty color with a foamy white head that dies into a film. Sweet aroma. Brown sugar of course with some light floral notes. Nice contrast between sweetness and bitterness. The alcohol taste is a little strong but not overwelming.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
12 oz. bottle, thanks to slob for including this little goodie in my trade box! Pours a cloudy topaz-mahogany color, with a small beige head and some lace. Sweet and citric aroma, brown sugar (no surprise there), along with orange, grapefruit, hints of pine and floral notes. Very sweet malty flavor, like orange juice with brown sugar scooped in, plenty of hops to balance as well, grapefruit and spruce tastes with alcohol in the finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. This one’s good!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 Pours a beautiful amber honey color w/ a full, semi creamy froth that recedes to reveal a textbook example of brewers lace. Aroma is malty sweet w/ a mild hopsy boquet. Full nectar w/ soft and creamy residual effers. A big malty backbone w/ a moderate sweetess balanced by a strict hopsy asprin agent that exposes itself early on and digs in. Nice! Citrus rind meets bit-o honey. Molases, leather, slight coffee bean, vanilla, caramel. A defined aclcohol presence is slightly annoying, tastes like celery. The finish is long w/ a lingering asprin burn. Very warming.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 I am becoming very fond of this brewer. Sample from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby chestnut color with a medium sized tan head and incredible lacing. The aroma is sweet and sugary with a grapefruity hop undertone. The flavor is sweet and sugary with brown sugar notes and elements of grapefruit and other ripe fruits. The fruitiness lingers on the long finish. Moderately thick. Excellent.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Poured a deep red with full head and good lacing. The best way to descibe this beer is balance. Very sweet and malty backbone with a perfect amount of hops to counteract. Alos a gentle spicyness that adds depth. Too sweet to drink a lot of, but well done.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2006
Bottle shared with tupalev, jerc, blankboy & HogTownHarry - courtesy of tupalev. Dark amber colour with a few little floaties. Aroma is quite sweet (brown sugar, natch) and warm, with a well hopped end note. Flavour is sweet as well, with some boozy warmth and hop bitterness coming through in the finish. A bit simple, but nice.
