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

Big sweet(not cloying though) malty mutha of a beer. This has been in my "cellar" for a year and the hops are perfectly balanced against the rich malty body. Just enough grapefruity hops to add a little bite to it. Very nice brew and I’m glad I let it age.

Ljusbrun med stort vit skum. Doftar sött med endel karamellmalt. Smaken är ganska besk med lite alkoholsmak. Ganska humlig!

Hoppy aroma of wood, shampoo and pine needles.

dodskenta (24) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Pour a clear red with a massive off white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is caramel, sweet malty, oranges, hoppy. Flavour is right up there with the style, very sweet sticky malt, bitter hops and a bit of alcohol. Kid of thin on the end, but tasty!

chribban (238) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2015
Clear, dark amber beer with a high yellow-biege, fluffy head that leaves a LOT of lacing on the glass! Nose: Caramel malt, butter, dried fruit, alcohol, orange, clementine, marmelade and syrup. Taste: Syrup, caramel, dried fruit, pine, tropical fruit, wood and resin. A special "Lagunitas" taste that I’ve recognised before... Body: Full body with medium carbonation. Oily, smooth taste with a lot of components. Great dry finish. A bitter taste that stays and even increase at the end. This is a ****ing great beer! I think it’s a little too sweet for a dinner but great after a good meal, skip the desert!

Bottle from Systembolaget. Reddish brown color in the glass with a fluffy, thick, white head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, cotton candy and syrup. The taste bites you inside the mouth, tropical fruit, dried dark fruit, quite heavy alcohol. Long after taste of bitterness.
