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!

KnutAlbert (6267) - 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.

Cool_Bond (1568) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2013
Tropical fruit aroma. Caramel flavor and slightly sweet. No alcohol taste which is a plus. Long aftertaste. According to me, this is one of the better Barleywine that I tried. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2013. Sweet malty smell with caramel and cyrup. Similar taste. Feels like it will age well.

Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2013) - Copper coloured. Dried fruit, spice and leather in the aroma. Fruity taste with notes of honey, raisins, sultanas and marzipan. Very nice.

gyllenbock (5022) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
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?

VictorStr (1434) - 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.

Svesse (6296) - 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.

oh6gdx (20902) - 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.

Abrakarl (342) - SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
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.
