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.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUL 17, 2012
Cloudy darkish amber pour wearing a fine off-white froth. Dark and rather complex sugars come off this heady, potent ale which unveils pleasantly fruity esters (strawberry, pear) and agreeably toasted malts. The toasted malts pretty much dominate the flavour profile, reminding of french toast, caramel, milk chocolate and cookies. For an 11% brew, the alcohol is certainly never overpowering. It provides a comfortable warmth, and one that fits the malty flavours nicely. Hops remain subtle, just a tad earthy, especially in this bottle which has seen more than a few moons. It makes the finish appear on the sweet side, the alcohol enhancing that impression, but the relatively lively carbonation decreasing it gently. Those bubbles do manage to thin out the thickness impression effectively, but then again cut through the richness as well. All in all, a pleasant sipper, but not profound enough to be contemplative.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2014
50cl bottle pours with a slightly murky deep red amber-ish body that supports a thin light tan head. The aroma is malty, prune-y, a bit of spicy black strap molasses, brown sugar and a bit of smooth aged ripe cherry meat. The taste begins with brown sugar, prunes and slightly spicy molasses covered dates. To midway it gets a bit more fruity with modest ripe cherry notes as well as a bit of sweet nuttiness joining in and helping take this to the finish. Pretty nice sipper where the big ABV seemed very well hidden.

jonnyguns (909) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a dark reddish amber with small head. Fruits and some spice in the aroma, not too much going on. Taste is kind of the same with some spice lingering, I like barleywines but this isn’t one of my favourites

Cybercat (3306) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Strong, somewhat candy-like aroma has notes of caramel, cloves and malt. Pours a fairly clear chestnut with a fairly thick light buff head that leaves OK lacing. Flavor has candy sweetness and notes of caramel, horehound and cloves with hints of malt and hops. Smooth texture has average fizz and body, not too shabby. Yule probably enjoy this one if you like barley wines.
