COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
FÖRENINGEN ESKILSTUNA ÖLKULTUR 10 ÅR 2013!
Det firar vi med en alldeles extra öl:

ESKILSTUNA ÖLKULTUR
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!

This barley wine has a nice aroma! Vanilla together with apple and some fudge. Very sweet but in a good way. The taste is similar but has some bitterness too. Nicely done, Eskilstuna.

@ Basunen: doften är gansk blek. Smaken är mycket smörig med en hel del kola. Annars inget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6854) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 5 Oct 2013) Dark reddish amber colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, raspberries and cherries in brandy. Malty, fruity taste with read fruit, treacle, caramel and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. Full body, quite sweet. Tasty barley wine with some warming alcohol shining through. Nice one.

KnutAlbert (6363) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, special order. Inviting malty aroma, complex. Pepper, malt, bisquits, plums, raisins, brandy. Lovely tipple, a bit of a raw edge, this would get even better with time.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Ar: yeasty, washcloth, fruity, strawberry jam, alcohol, berries, earthy hops, alcohol, caramel. Ap: deep copper colour, medium off-white head, lacing. T: mid bitter, big sweetness, unsophisticated barley soup, no usual complex and fruity notes from malts and hops, just a Beefed up ale big in ABV low in real flavour. P: medium body, thin feel, warming finish. O: Miserable BW.

stefannilssons (1520) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2013
Det här var en väldigt välhumlad barley wine med en kraftigt bitter smak med toner av honung, bitter, och torkat hö. Kroppen var stabil och balansen sken med sin frånvaro.

VictorStr (1631) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Alkoholen skiner igenom i aromen. Kraftig i aromen, enkel del honung. Väldigt len i kroppen. Druvig, som ett lätt lätt rödvin.

hackobock (2102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear dark ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma has butterscotch, red berries . Taste is sweet with an increasing butter note. Finish is light bitter with butterscotch and red berries. Way too buttery to be enjoyable

oh6gdx (22105) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is ripe fruits, some toffee, alcohol and some slight gluelike sweetness. Flavour is fruity, herbal, mild toffeeish and ripe fruity notes along with a quite big sting of alcohol. A bit diacetylic as well, but not too disturbing. Also it’s bit fresh still, but if it’s allowed to mellow out a bit more, it will become very nice.

Sample SBWF 2013. Clear copper with a small head. Quite sweet aroma and taste of dried fruit, malt, raisin, nuts and some light vanilla. Smooth and easy to drink. I wonder when this one will peak?
