COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ursprünglich als reine Jahrgangsedition 2009 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.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 Bottle, courtesy of Koelschtrinker. Cocoa and boozy chocolate mousse aroma. Hints of prune. A bit dusty. Quite short finish. Thick boozy taste, but well made and aged. Feels old though, but still okay.

Saeglopur (1609) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 20, 2016
750 ml bottle, 2010 vintage.
Brownish-copper body, with almost no head.
Aroma of dried fruits, cherries, berries, caramel, cocoa, some wood, some chocolate.
Taste follows this, medium sweet, a bit dry, with some more tea notes, slight tobacco.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium dry, a bit roasty, warm, with cocoa, wood, some fruits, some tobacco.

Very nice. Didn’t have this beer before, so I can’t compare it, but this seems to age very well. Alcohol is well hidden, drinks really smooth, with lovely fruits in the nose and a pleasant, balancing dryness in the tase. Not among my favourite style examples, but great considering this was one of the very first Barley Wines from Austria.

Schoen dick und stark mit einer fruchtigen Note, etwas an Perlung, leichter Getreidigkeit und einer milden Sauere. Nicht schlecht.

Sample from Erzengel, many thanks, Gabriel. The beer has got a deep dark brown - amber colour with a low head and smooth body. Aroma of barley, dried fruits and oak. Taste of barley, sherry, caramel, rum, dried fruits, plums. Smooth to drink and delicious.

Vielen Dank an Erzengel! Das Bier hat eine dunkel orangebraune Farbe und eine ordentliche beige Schaumkrone. Geruch ist intensiv malzig, Dörrobst, Karamell, alkoholisch. Der Geschmack ist intensiv malzig, leicht holzig, reifes Obst, brennend alkoholisch, lecker!

Erzengel (7323) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
2009er bottle aged in the cellar. Malty-brown sugary nose, intense and interesting. The beer starts fresh and easy to drink. Malt, caramel. Dark dried fruits, a bit dusty. Smooth and dark, but refreshing with watery hints. Not as viscous as I thought. Long dark brown sugary malty aftertaste, round, smooth and full with a warming ending. Nice!

Karol (744) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2014
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!

netty (71) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2014
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.
