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

This poured as amber as amber could be, citris nose with the hint of brown shugga hence the name. alcohol present, of course. Later taste of bitterness.

22 oz. bomber. Heavily alcoholic - I did’t think it was hidden very well, and I like high abv beers. The brown sugar aspect really showed through in the malt background...didn’t feel like drinking the whole bomber, and it was nothing I would ever crave again. Enough said.

This offering from Lagunitas pours a rusty brown leaving a thick frothy tan head that sticks with this brew. The aroma is toffee, caramel, brown sugar, leafy citrus hops. The taste is smooth on the palate, it hits you with some alcohal heat upfront, but it is not overwhelming it actually is pretty hidden for almost 10%. The beer then takes you to a sweet brown sugary feel that is offset by pungent citrus rind hops, medicinal in feel, that finishes with a cooked sugar, cookies, sweetness in the end this is another great offering from Lagunitas, one that is made for winter sipping.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Incredibly nice copper-red color and the head is nice and creamy. The aroma is hoppy with light sweetness and notes of grass and resin. The flavour is sweetish with notes of caramel, cane sugar (more than brown sugar to me), aroma hops, citrus and a hint of resin. Quite nice, not outstanding. 2013

madsberg (11249) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2007
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Sweetness, caramel, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour is very distinct of cocoa and brown sugar. Is herbal and flowery. Distinct notes of alchol. Medium bodied. Has a light bitter caramel end. Nice.

Braudog (6175) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2007
From the 22oz bomber; this poured an orange-tinted amber with a thin but prominately standing cover of thin foam. Light sugary aroma. The sweet brown sugar (surprise?) flavor was mellow -- I’d never peg this for an almost 10% ABV beer. This drinks very easily, only slightly warming with a nice full but casual Barleywine-like burn, with a slight hoppy tingle to finish it. Good. (#2796, 4/14/2007)
