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!

Honey in both aroma and taste. Feels like to much honey which gives a little dryness. A strange barley wine out of style.

(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 (2268) - 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.

FatPhil (9363) - 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.

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.
