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

LeRose (73) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12 oz bottle, no date. Poured deep copper color with not much head. What head there was hung around and laced nicely. Visually looked like good maple syrup with a bit if foam on top. Aroma was subdued. Some resinous pine notes, blended tropical fruit, malt, a bit of rum raisin, sweet. Taste was much bolder. Sweetness initial, but some bitter resin at out the same time, then tropical. Didn’t immediately think pineapple. More of a mango and papaya flavor. Bitterness hits at the end, and the I get pineapple syrup flavor in the aftertaste. Body had some raisiny notes, slight brown sugar or caramelized sugar taste. Mouthfeel was smooth and sticky, but aftertaste lingers and gives some tingle from the alcohol. A bit of astringency makes it dry out some. Overall enjoyable to drink. Not what I was expecting. Nice balance, but the lingering aftertaste takes it down tick for me.

bnokk (288) - Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
APPEARANCE - light brown with amber tones. NOSE - very little, the slightest hit of malt sweetness. FLAVOR - exceptionally smooth. I would NEVER guess it belongs in a sniffer. Very clean drinker with nice malt flavor and sweetness and a very low bitterness to balance it out. NOTES - lives up to its reputation for an amazing malty ale that can lead to trouble.
