I’ve had this fresh and aged, as I somehow acquired a bunch of 2011 Gnarlywines at a nice discount. Fresh, I get a rich malty toasted coconut caramel malt flavor contrasting with a ton of sticky citrusy hops. There’s a smoothly sweet finish. The age mellows out some of the rough edges.

Nice barely wine with lots of character. Lagunitas sweetness comes through for a great mouthful and finish. Would drink again. And again. And again.

I like my barleywines on the sweet side, and thought this would be hoppy. It was not; mildly sweet, well balanced, tremendous value for the price.

Bought 22oz bomber from Lambrecht's in Stevensville, Michigan for $4.99. Loved the flavor of this barley wine. Another great Lagunitas brew. March 2015
