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

jmohno (1564) - Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Clearish carmel reddish brown.More froth than normal,spotty lacing. Nice aroma pungent,with fruit pineapple grapefruit,spice and carmel sweetness.Potent and nice. Same in taste,soft smooth,chewy,pretty strong hop flavor but balanced well with the carmel malt. piney finish,stong nature but drinks well and hides alcohol with a strong malt/hop.Very slight hints of dry alcohol.Suprised how good it was but no surprise for Lagunitas.

Chalumeaux (1313) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Pours out a nice copper caramel color with a thick slightly off white head. Hop, pine, grapefruit, and brown sugar aroma, kind of a thick smell. Smooth malt taste, lot of dark sugar, nicely balanced. OK, maybe a touch too much sugar, but I like it. Hoppy up front, malty in the middle, and then ends slightly sweet with a hop bitterness on the back of the tongue. Now that I am at the end of the glass, sneaky alcohol. You have been warned.

I got almost nothing out of this beer when I drank it aside from a very hoppy flavor. Its pretty to look at, but in taste, I cant get anything other than hops. Bitter, strong, and not very smooth, I think this beer is mediocre at best.

oobawa (862) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2017
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 its not bad.

harrlyonsy (12) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2017
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 (4043) - Garching b. Mnchen, 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 (3017) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Tap at Js. 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 (766) - 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.
