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!

OminouSC2 (426) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Bourbon, vanilla oak, caramel, malt and alcohol. Golden brown color. A bit too much alcohol in the finish but still one of my favorite barley wines!

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Aroma of vanilla and malt mostly. Taste has malt and raisin at first, followed by stingy bourbon vanilla, caramel and some booze. Nice, but a bit simple.

tfredvik (1728) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2015
Clear, very deep copper body with a quite small, beige head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Sweet and quite strong aroma of caramel, hops and generic overripe fruits, and dark dried fruits in the back. Strong flavour that follows the aroma. The barrel ageing gives only very subtle hints of bourbon and wood. Rather heavy sweet taste and a heavy bitter finish. Vinous and pleasant mouthfeel, full body, smooth and syrupy texture, soft carbonation. A pleasant and gentle barley wine.
[50 cl bottle, batch 708, enjoyed 4 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

Bottle split at Amager Brewery mini tasting, RBESG ’15 day 3, thanks to Papsoe, 22/08/15. Hazed mahogany brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is rich fruit, barrel, spice, dates, caramel, rich malt. Taste comprises toasted marshmallows, subtle bourbon, coconut fudge, caramel, rich fruit, Xmas cake, light wooded barrel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, lightly rising alcohol in the close. Solid BW, well executed, good sipping machine.

Bottle. Huge excellent thick foamy head that really lasted. Deep dark mahogany colour. Explosive aroma with vanilla, bourbon, heavy malt, hops wood. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering vanilla bourbon malt finish. Really great beer!

oliodnb (661) - 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.
