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

@ 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!

Vignale (2379) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2015
Flaska från SB. Trots att den en ganska rejlt humlad en riktig maltbomb med massor av kolaremmar, karamelliserat socker, muskovado, acaciehonung, men i bakgrunden finns en bra kådig beska med lite apelsinmarmelad med mycket skal. Gott.

ansalon (1735) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2015
Pours clear amber with a very large frothy off white head. Aromas of caramel, rye bread, ripe tropical fruit: peach, apricot, mango. Also some resin and dates. Taste is caramel, dates, butterscotch, ripe tropical fruit notes of peach, mango and apricot along with some resinous notes. Mouthfeel is a bit oily and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite good!

aenima (292) - Askim, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2015
American hops in the aroma. The taste is citrusy, fruity and slightly caramelly. I would have liked more caramel notes. This is almost like a sweet IIPA.

neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
(355ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a clear deep amber with a small fine white head and lace. Aroma has brown sugar as promised, caramel, orange peel, mixed dry fruit, maybe something herbal/soapy in the hop note. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, deep caramel, dried fruit, marmalade. Hop bitterness comes in towards the finish, piney, a bit herbal, moderately strong but still doesn’t totally overpower the malts. Aftertaste has brown sugar, sweet orange, citrus pith, a little alcohol. Lightish body for a barley wine, fairly soft carb. Quite sweet on the whole despite a decent hop grip, doesn’t really have the fullness and complexity of a barley wine. Kind of like a very sweet and not terribly tropical DIPA. Not bad, but lacks both heft and refinement.

sudomorph (811) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, caramel with a nice, finger and a half of head that thins but lasts forever. Aroma has bright notes of citrus, pine, resin, pineapple, slight floral, and a bit of brown sugar. Taste is sweeter but balanced. Pine, resin, citrus, pineapple, a touch of alcohol, caramel, bread, brown sugar, and a drawn out aftertaste. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Very slightly syrupy in the mouth with a smooth texture and a big, dry finish. Overall a really nice beer. Lots of hop flavours mixed with a big of brown sugar. Noticeable pineapple for me.

ramboraffe (953) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2015
355 ml bottle. Clear amber with white head. Smell is caramel, candy, dried fruit, grapefruit and pine. Taste is first bitter pine and grepfruit hoppy, then sweet caramel and candi sugar and the finish is again hoppy, but also sweet with dried fruit, alcohol and caramel. Sweet with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

Hopmaestro (358) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2015
Aroma is a candy-ish sweetness with softer malts and caramels. You get a hint of booze in here also. The taste is really sweet at first, almost a bit too sweet and after a while the malt character breaks through. My first thoughts go towards a sweeter English barley wine. But in the aftertaste there comes a pretty good punch of alcohol which turns this one into a sipper
