COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ursprünglich als Jahrgangsedition geplant, wurde der Barley Wine bier.pur auf Grund der starken Nachfrage 2010 neu aufgelegt. Die Hopfennote öffnet sich im Jahrgang 2010 sanfter, da vermehrt auf Mühlviertler Hopfensorte Aurora zurückgegriffen wurde. Über 5 Gaben wurde die Hopfung ausbalanciert und mit der cirtusaromatischen Hopfensorte Cascade vollendet. Gebraut wurde diese Köstlichkeit in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Bierviertel in der Brauerei Hofstetten für das Fachmagazin bier.pur. Die Malzmischung aus 5 verschiedenen Spezialmalzsorten sorgt nicht nur für rötliche Lichteffekte im Glas, sondern auch für ein ansprechendes Gegenüber zur ausgeprägten Hopfung. Nach 3 Monaten der Reife im Lagerkeller, wurde das Bier zur Nachgärung auf die Flasche gezogen, so konnte die Kölsch-Hefe die komplexen Aromen wunderbar zusammenfügen. Auch wenn dieses Bier schon jetzt hervorragend mundet, kann man den Barley Wine ebenso einige Jahre einlagern, um dann die Fülle an Sekundäraromen genießen zu können. Wie schmeckt die bier.pur Edition? Leuchtendes Gold mit rötlichem Schimmer und tiefgründiger Farbstruktur, darüber ein kräftiger cremefarbener fester Schaum mit feiner Konsistenz von dem anfangs ein fruchtiger, dann ein würzig-floraler Duft aufsteigt. Der Antrunk zeigt eine deutliche Fruchtnote nach Waldbeeren, umspielt von würzigen Kräuternoten. Im Balancespiel einer dichten Malzstruktur und einer aromatischen Bittere wird der Geschmackseindruck lang und länger und endet mit einem

Bottle bottled in 2010, aged four years. A Christmas present from my love :). Overall a fantastic brew! This beer has a sorb tree (sorbus domestica or whitty pear) young fruit aroma and ripe sorb tree fruit taste (minus the sweet fruit sugary taste) that reminds me of my childhood. There was a very old and huge sorb tree not far from our family house and I used to pick its ripe fruits. The sorb tree fruit bitterness in taste is phenomenal and holds on to the bitter end. This beer is a personal jackpot for me!

Dakujem maj lav za kostovku. Farba je zvlastna, tmavy mutny karamel. Neskutocne krasna vona. Caramelovo fruktozova vona. Chut je silna ovocna, jemne trpka citit oskorusu. Citit prenikavy ale nie agresivny alkohol. Toto pivo vytvara dojem ako keby som pila jemne perlive vino. Je citit, ze je dlhsie odlezane. Ine ako som doteraz pila. Skvele, osviezujuce a pritom silne a delikatne. Doporucujem na vecer k oblubenemu filmu.

Bottle (Aged one year): Malty, fruity nose, notes of raisins, plums and nuts. Amber color, frothy beige head. Flavor is light sweet, quite malty and fruity. Nice notes of cherries and plums, cacao in the end, hints of cacao bitterness and a light dryness. Pretty good one.

Big thanks to Koelschtrinker for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark, almost black, small head. Starts strong and malty, rusty, dry, a bit earthy. Warming finish, less dry, more spicy. Could be a bit more fiery for a Barley Wine, but still a great beer!

Bottle I got from Peter, drunk at Caspars hazy dark hazel brown in colour, little off white head. Homely nose of mühlviertler hop and aged malt. Sweet earthy stewed prunes with herby dried flowers in the nose. lovely beer and it DID age alright :-)

Hazy red-dark amber color. Chocolate aroma. Caramel flavor, quite good, not thick or sugary like a real Barley Wine, but pleasant; there is a light nutty touch; low bitterness. Not bad.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2012
Swing top bottle from Kölschtrinker, thanks! Dark brown color. Malt, red berries, citrus and some hops in the aroma. Malty sweetish flavor with loads of hops, red berries, citrus and apple syrup. Powerful beer, not too alcoholic and with loads of flavor.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Copper color with practically zero head. Sweeet malty aroma and taste, lots of ripe fruit and caramel, burnt sugar, some alcohol. Low carbonation. Smooth, medium bodied, low on bitterness. Not your typical B.Wine, more of a doppelbock/B.Wien clone.
