COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Inspireret af de størke britiske ales der blev brygget for at tage kampen op mod portvinene fra kontinentet. En øl der med en simpel maltprofil og behersket humle leverer tonsvis a kompleksitet og kulhydrater. Yulewine er brygget af 100% økologiske råvarer og har indtil videre lagret 7 måneder.

YULEWINE IS BIG AND UNCOMPROMISING ENGLISH STYLE BARLEY WINE MADE FROM 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS. WHEN POURED IT WILL EMBRACE YOU WITH ITS RUM€LIKE NOTES FROM DARK SUGAR ADDED TO THE KETTLE. MODEST HOPING TAKES THE BACKSEAT TO MOUTH FILLING MALT CHARACH TER CHASED BY WARMING ALCOHOL. ENJOY IT AT CELLAR TEMPERATURE AFTER A GOOD MEAL NOW OR KEEP IS FOR A FEW YEARS AS IT WILL IMPROVE FOR YEARS TO COME.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a off white head. Aroma is of dark fruits like figs, raisins and dates, caramel, sweet brown sugar notes and spice notes. Flavor follows the nose with lots of dark fruits again raisins, fig, and dates, along with caramel, brown sugar, light spice and dark berry notes. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a solid Barley Wine, but fairly disappointing compared to most of Beer Here’s brews.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
pours a dark and murky brown with a minimal white head. Nose is Biscuity malts and caramel with some vanilla and banana. Taste is hop bitterness in the very front which gives way to malty sweetness and transitions back to a bitter finish. Mouthfeel is astringent and oily with heavy body. This gets better as it warms so my advice would be to let it sit for while before indulging if you have kept it cool.

Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle. This bottle says "Yule Ale" but the picture is the same. Dark brown and hazy. A nice beige head is two fingers and lasts well. Malt and grain with fruit in the aroma. Malty fruit are also prominent flavor themes. Yeast and dark sugar. Hops are tasted but they are light. Bitterness is moderate. Alcohol is not over done but grows. It also adds warming on this Christmas Eve.

fiulijn (15343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark amber color; creamy head. Mild aroma of caramel, and very light dust. Good body structure; malt and caramel flavor, reminiscent of American Barley Wines, but less syrupy and bold than the average; strong bitterness but without hop character. Good to drink, but not exciting.
