Head was small leaving an oiley skim. Carmel in nose and tongue. Too malty for a real barely wine. Chewey and think I have had better. Not even an alcohol finish to top it off.

Full hop aroma with a deep garnet body which is tranquil with no head or lace. Flavors include citrus hops, malt, caramel, fruit and spice. Nicely complex, other notes alcohol is well hidden.

Had this at Brickskellar in Washington, D.C. Pours a clear mahagony color with minimal head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of brown sugar and caramel. Very sweet taste. I kind of liked it. Malty caramel taste with a kick of hops. Nice light, but dry finish. One of the better barley wines Ive had.

This stuff was pretty gnarly. Aroma is pretty hoppy, pleasent. Pours a dark amber. Flavor is nice, complex, hits sweet, malty caramel, nice hoppy finish. Pretty full body, hides alcohol well. Nice beer overall. If I find it again, I will gladly drink it.

(22oz bottle) Clear copper body topped by small but persistent off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, raisin, cherry, caramel. Taste is sweet, caramel, raisin/plum, candied cherry, some grapefruit. Medium alcohol warming. Medium-full body, moderate stickiness. More a malt bomb than a hop bomb, though theres plenty of bitterness too.

"Very good offering from Lagunitas here. The Gnarlywine pours a dark amber color with a solid head. The aroma is very nice--plenty of caramel malt followed by piney hops. The taste is the same--and the mouthfeel is sticky and full. I liked this quite a bit.

oh6gdx (26415) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled (Thanks MrWalker). A bit hazy amber reddish colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is plum, alcohol, candysugar and some fruity hops. Flavour is mainly the same, but with hops coming in more strong and balancing it up. Very wellbalanced and welldone Barley Wine.

Oh heck yeah. Deep reddish brown, small head fades into a lasting ring. Aroma of pine resin, citric hops, and chewy toffee. Initial malt thrust of thick caramel and coffee gives way to fantastic hop bomb of pine and citrus that leans towards grapefruit. The flavors linger wonderfully in the mouth long after the sip is finished. A magnificent, overtly American barley wine.

From Liquidsolutions. Had to get this as a filler for my Fred from the Wood. Sure as hell glad I got it, this is one awesome barley wine. Pours out dark red with a yellow colored head that goes away quicker than I thought. Taste is sweet, hoppy, slightly grassy (too fresh) and rich. The more I drink of it, the more the hops subside to a nice malty backbone leaving a very drinkable, very enjoyable Barley wine. One of the better examples of this I have drank in a while. Great beer, and I think as a whole this breweries beers are under rated - Ive never been disappointed from them. Great brew here.
