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!

oh6gdx (20274) - 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.

omhper (19307) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2013
Bottled at SBWF. Clear copper colour, small head. Unfortunately butterscotch dominate the nose. Sweet and caramelly with raspberry-like hop, warming and liqueur-like with well rounded mouthfeel. Butter dominate the finish too. Apart from the diacetyl this would be a nice barley wine.

FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2014
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.

gnoff (7750) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle sampled end of Feb, 2014.
Clear copper color, small white head. Weird buttery scent and butterscotch. Butterscotch, alcohol, whisky, agave taste. Agave and butter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Not very nice, more weird.

KnutAlbert (6067) - 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.

Svesse (6065) - 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.
