COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine - som navnet antyder er det en drik af næsten vinstyrke, men blot lavet på bygmalt i stedet for druer. Rig og fyldig med karamelnoter som sig hør og bør for typen, men med tilstrækkelig humle til at holde både sødme og alkohol i skak. Udtrykket "Barrel Proof" kendes fra den amerikanske bourbonindustri, hvor det bruges om en whiskey, der tappes på flaske uden nogen form for fortynding. Og således også med vores Barrel Proof, der har tilbragt 5 måneder netop på bourbonfade og derefter tappet på flaske helt uden svinkeærinder. Resultatet er en øl, der i høj grad er til stille nydelse og fordybning. Og hvad derefter sker, kan vi ikke tage ansvaret for - men vi hører meget gerne om det!

oliodnb (520) - ITALY - MAY 21, 2015
50cl bottle shared. Pours dark cloudy amber with a minimal beige head. Sweet aroma with strong bourbon notes, caramel, butter, booze. Taste also is very sweet with bitter roasted notes, strong bourbon again, dried fruit. Surprising good amount of final bitterness perfectly balancing the initial sweetness. Full body, thick sweet mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste with bourbon notes,low carbonation. Excellent.

@ Basunen 15-2-6: trevlig het maltig doft. Smaken är lika så. Stora malttoner. Mycket torkat frukt och en hel del alkohol. Ganska gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, amber colored beer with a dense, light beige head of moderate size. The aroma has some alcohol, booze actually, with wood, caramel and some dried fruit notes. Quite nice but a tad boozy. The same goes for the flavor. Wood, bourbon, some vanilla hints and dried fruits. Resin notes. It’s full-bodied and warming, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish. Too woody and boozy this one, but it’s nice anyway. 150124
