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

Malt sweetness and alcohol trump hop aroma and flavor. Clear amber color, solid body and good head. Not up to the hype!

sudomorph (772) - 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 (808) - 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 (298) - 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

Flaska från systemet - blommig humledoft. Härligt bärnstensfärgad historia. Tydlig men välbalanserad beska. En fruktansvärt härlig balans mellan beska och sötma. Underbar! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alkolas510 (787) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Ljusbrun med stort vit skum. Doftar sött med endel karamellmalt. Smaken är ganska besk med lite alkoholsmak. Ganska humlig!

pilsnerrogge (2566) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Clear dark amber. Lacing head.
Hoppy aroma of wood, shampoo and pine needles.
Taste is pine needles, wood and hops with a growing sweet maltiness lurking in the background.. Long bitterness.

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!
