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

GJF (1290) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at Capitol in Iowa City (admittedly not the best place to sample). Generally sweet flavors, caramel and brown sugar. Some grapefruit hop in the finish. Dry end to it that lingers (the fluffy white head lingers quite a long time too).

trapped (942) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear amber with large spongy beige head, floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, hoppy taste balanced with a little sweetness, long hoppy finish. Great brew, the high alcohol content is not noticeable at all.

7stern (425) - Bromma, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2015
Holiday ale, labelled brown shugga substitute. Clear dark golden, lasting laces. Honey aroma. Full bodied, sweetness well balanced with the bitterness.

HourGlass13 (150) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Brownish copper pour with a good tan head. Aroma is mild hops and sweet malt. Taste is a brief hop presence and then a long sweet malty finish. Hides its alcohol well. A smooth easy drinker. Enjoyable.

All around it is not the greatest beer. Sweet flavors but quickly turns into an off flavor.

paintedmaple (462) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Sweet without being too sweet or cloying. Actually, less sweet than most other BWs Ive had. Also, much lighter in both color and body, and yet still full bodied with a complex flavor. Nice bittersweet finish.

Caramel, bread, citrus fruit aroma. Pours a deep copper with shop white head and good lacing. Some caramel, full bodied, alcohol backbone, malty, dark fruit, rum character.
