With aromas of aged fruitcake, dark spices, raisins, over-roasted sweet malt, Bob's Gnarly Wine is yeast and "yeah Man...pass it around." Tastes of tart currants, port wine, burnt caramel are complex but inviting. Sure Bob's Gnarly Wine is stronger than most of our beers, but hey man, everything gonna be alright.

    Pours a dark translucent ruby-brownish with a decent light tan head. Strong malty and hoppy aroma has molasses and nutty hints. Rich flavor has a strong alcohol zing typical of barleywines, but this does not dominate the taste, which has a nice balance of malt and hops and a nutty undertone. Texture is smoother and more pleasant than most barleywines I have tried.

    As I had it with Shag and Ice, I will also have to concur that it tasted a lot like an IIPA. Very piney, citrusy, and hoppy for a BW. The alcohol wasn’t present as much as it is with other BW’s either. Not too shabby though, still very very enjoyable and of course, as with all 5 brews, very smooth.

    This was an unusal take on a barley wine style. A dark orange appearance with little head. The aroma is citrus and pine similar to an IPA. The flavor was rather sweet with some grapefruit, caramel, and a piney presence. Despite the citrus in this it wasnt a hop fest either. Unlike any barleywine Ive ever had. Pretty good.

    Cloudy brown with large, creamy, long-lasting head. A bit like bourbon-soaked zucchini bread (basically, the esters there aren't quite banana-like to make it booze-soaked banana bread). Bit of nuttiness. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Very fruity. The body is full and creamy, but the flavor is almost light for a barleywine. Almost minty in the back from the hops, I'm assuming, but this definitely goes the path of the less hoppy British barleywines instead of the hop monster American versions. Extremely drinkable for its size.
