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!

Pous a slightly hazy brown producing a medium sized, dense-looking lightly tanned head. Taste is malty and vinous, wood, dried fruits and a decent bitterness as well. Full bodied and warming. Aroma is bourbon’d with wood and caramel malts.

ClubGonzo (4163) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy ruby-hued dark mahogany brown body with a medium creamy light beige head. Very nice. Nose is vanilla, raisins, nuts, caramel, toffee, wood, bourbon and hints of cream and alcohol. Taste is caramel, vanilla, wood, toffee, bitter herbs, alcohol and hints of raisins, nuts and biscuits. Full body, medium carbonation. Very nice BA touch on this one, the bourbon notes protrude just enough to assert the flavors. A bit bitter in the finish, otherwise very good.

Cool_Bond (1531) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
The smell of oak, raisins and dark fruits. The taste is the same but with some small hints of alcohol too. Heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth a long time. Really heavy drinking but not nearly as bad. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
