COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Copper colored pour with a small khaki head. A strong grapefruit hoppiness, some pine, and a lot of toffee, caramel, and toasted bread. A bit of perfume, too. Nice caramel and brown sugar sweetness with a strong fruit character to the flavor. Some pine bitterness, a bit of grapefruit, and floral hops. Mild alcohol on the finish. Quite nice and surprisingly easy to drink barleywine.

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

wihlan (363) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
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

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

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!
