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

Oddball brew, offering up mountains of burnt sugar sweetness yet hanging onto a noticeable hop herbaceousness. Looks gorgoeus, and the nose is straight Barleywine, but the taste becomes something unique, sweet yet with a toasted, boozy middle and an ever-present hoppiness. Finishes bitter and bold. Nice.

Dark clear amber, not much in the way of head. Not much aroma either. Tastes really sweet wrapped around a bitter center. The sensation is a little weird, but it’s not bad.

Poured from a bottle, nutty brown color. Aroma is very sweet for a brown ale, taste is over powering to my taste. I can see why its liked but not for me.

SinH4 (6896) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
Tap. Amber color with tan ring. Aroma is fresh piney and grapefruity hops, as well as some caramel and sugary crystal malts. Taste is grapefruits, brown sugar. Oily mouthfeel. Very hoppy strong ale, Lagunitas-style.

willisread (3939) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Tap at J’s. Pours a deep, rich brown with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Light brown sugar nose with citrus and pine on the nose. Light caramel and pine hops. Clean and crisp, with a nice sweet sorghum character on the palate. Light bodied. Easy drinking and the booze is well hidden.

Moebbels (839) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2017
A fairly clear deep amber body with a small, well lasting off-white head. Nose deep and malty with sherry, caramel and raisins. Taste is sweet with a nice balancing bitterness and a warm alcoholic burn. Soft xarbonation and full, easy drinking palate. Very good BW with nice drinkability and complex aromas.

Pours like a brown ale. Easy to drink and smooth. On the sweeter side. Released once a year.

StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2016
On tap at Bangers. This is a big complex beer, lots of flavours kick through in this bad boy, biscuit, citrus, some dried fruit. Definitely not for those who like a bland beer.
