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

Linnet (1262) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Hoppy, malty, jammy, grapefruit, citric, resinous, almost like a double IPA. Amber colour, big off-white head, lacing. Big bite, big sweetness, hoppy, immensely flavourful. Fullbodied, average carbonation, warming and bitter finish. Great.

355 cl systembolaget. Först tycker jag att det bara Smakar alkohol. Men efter ett tag framträder massor asgoda smaker och detta blir en favorit att sippa på!

Mad_Ferret (741) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from SB. Clear orange amber, some particles floating around, big fluffy nicotine white head, nice lace. Spun sugar, orange peel/orange marmalade, some bready malts, pine needles. Sweet with sugary caramel, orange peel and marmalade, bread, piney bitter finish with some alcohol. Bigger body with soft carbonation and sticky oily texture. Typical Lagunitas sweetness. Well made and tasty. Very drinkable for its percentage. Don’t know if I would have put it in the barley wine section if I didn’t know though.

MSBrindbergs (559) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2015
Flaska från SB. Otroligt vacker i sin klara koppardress med mastigt vitt skum. Dofter av fikon och farinsocker. Slisksöt men på ett bra sätt med en fin rund beska på det. Lite alkohol slår igenom, men inte så det stör. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Incredibly smooth barleywine! Pretty pour w/ a nice head. Aroma is somewhat sweet w/ some hops. The flavor is a subtle hop kick throughout! So tasty & so light on the palate! Outstanding!

tlyx (70) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2015
Doft mörk marmeladgodis, sega syrliga remmar. Fyllig, söt och kryddig smak, inte så klibbigt sött som det barley wine kan bli. Lite brända mandlar och lite tvär beska. Viss alkoholhetta som snabbt försvinner.

Gaultier (892) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
@ Agards väg 8/3-15. Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy, fruity and caramely with notes of pine needles, also sweet. Body is medium to light full, the finish is dry, bitter and hoppy with light alcoholic notes.

Lawger (225) - SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Chestnut brown and almost clear in colour. Off-white head. The aroma is a pleasant mix of caramels, herbs, roasted malts, figs and dates. Almost candy-like. Full bodied palate. Sweet but not overwhelmingly so. There's a slight tartness which makes it balanced and complex to taste. Low bitterness. Quite delicious and perfect as an after dinner beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Basunen 15-3-7: en mycket enkel barley wine med tydlig prägel av råsocker. Inte mycket annat tyvärr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
