Det firar vi med en alldeles extra öl:

Barley wine

Enligt legenden importerade den engelska aristokratin under tidigt 1800-tal mycket franska viner för att dricka till sina fina middagar. Bryggarna tyckte att herrskapet istället skulle njuta engelsk dryck. Deras lösning var att brygga ett öl i vinstyrka och kalla det för barley wine. Trots namnet är det inget vin utan en av de starkaste och mest smakrika ölstilarna i världen. Fyllig, intensivt fruktig, maltsöt, vinös, värmande och enormt smakrik.Vår Barley wine är bryggd på stora mängder svensk pilsnermalt, engelsk humle och sörmländsk honung. Resultatet är ett öl som definitivt är värt att lagra, helst i flera år.

Bryggs första gången till vårt tioårsjubileum 2013!
Ölet har ABV 10 och håller att lagra i tio år!

Pours a deep and dirty chestnut brown with small off-white head. Fridge cold aroma has a nice, nutty and sweet maltiness with some toffee notes. As it warms up the toffee and butterscotch-notes intensifies along with some resinous woodyness. Really very pleasant nose. Medium+ bodied palate. The sweetness is balanced and not at all over the top like I feared because of the addition of honey. Good, creamy mouthfeel, low bitterness and good finish. Will probably buy a few to cellar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 2023-08-16, at Ølhus Stockholm, Helsinki, 20140528) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses, mildly vineousness and some chocolate. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sugary sweetness, alcohol, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, boozy and bitter. At its current condition the beer was too sweet and also harsh. Aging might help.

jookos (3226) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. Brown murky. Strange aroma.. reminds me actually of some phenolic schnapps... Or grappa. Plummy malts, herbal things. Dirt. Full body, abv shining through. Well bittered though, doesn’t feel too hard to drink. But a strange one. Just unclean, bit phoenolic but crafty, once again.

330ml bottle (0lhus Stockholm, Helsinki)
Yikes! Cheesecake aroma. If I force myself to get a fruit, I get cherry, but Anna’s convnced it’s strawberry. Hazy red, tiny head. Thinnish palate, gentle carbonation, feels a bit flat. Sweetish malts, rather dull, none of the fullness I want from a BW. Hops bitter in the finish. Very disappointing as BW.
