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

Pours a beautiful cloudly copper color with little head. Aroma is sweet with a hint of alcohol. A lot of sweetness on the palate. The overall taste is complex. From heavy malt and molasses to hoppy to a alcohol-laden aftertaste. A very complex but delicious beer. Actually rather smooth considering the alcohol content.

_angst_ (3237) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours clear deep golden with a rather big creamy goldenish beige head that leaves lots of sticky trace and lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and floral with caramel, grapefruit, moist grass, pine needles, lilacs and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, tiny fruity and floral with caramel, sweet bread, grapefruit, mango, moist grass, pine needles, chives, alcohol and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny sticky sweet, slightly boozy, tiny astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with caramel, grapefruit, mango, moist grass, pine needles, alcohol and lemon zest. Decent US barley wine.

Klar, bärnstens-röd med ett tätt, orange skum. Doft: Humle, malt, alkohol, jul apelsin, marknads marmelad godis, fox citronkola. Mycket stark 7:a. Smak: Fox citronkola, humle, marknads marmelad godis, starkt svart te med mycket socker, avslagen Cola. Stark 7:a. God öl som säkerligen blir bättre med tiden.

Btl pours clear amber color with an off huge compact off white head. Hangs around for awhile leaving tons of lace on glass. Aromas of burnt brown sugar, caramel,graham cracker, pine,citrus fruit and a hint of alcohol. Tastes of candy, raisins, alcohol, and earth? Bold heavy body,thick mouthfeel,medium carbonation, very smooth finish. I can describe this beer in one word. Wow! Although it is a little sweet, it still is very drinkable. The alcohol is hidden very well. I still like the substitute a bit better. Anyway a fabulous offering once again by lagunitas!

A really nice taste-bomb. A LOT of hops balanced to a thick sticky malt base. A lot of candied sugar. Great!

Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a large head. Sweet with sugar, malt, some dried fruit and warming alcohol. Drinkable but a bit "raw".

Walberla (8) - Alingsås, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015 does not count
Smak av allt det goda som kan serveras efter en julmiddag. Choklad, fikon, nötter, kaffe och russin. Alkoholen känns inledningsvis men drunknar i ett komplext smakspektrum.
