COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine er ofte betegnelsen på den af bryggeriets øl, der har den højeste alkoholprocent. Dette er også tilfældet for Barley Wine fra Fur Bryghus. Vi har valgt at illustrere denne sjældne øltype med billedet af et af de mest sjældne fund på Fur: Et 30 cm langt kranie af en kæmpeskildpadde, fundet i 1957 af Fur Museums første leder Magne Breiner og opkaldt efter ham: "Eoasphargis Breneri". Der er tappet 3468 af denne Barley Wine. Kraftig humleoplevelse med vinøs varme og smag af mørk malt, karamel og anis.

English: Barley Wine is often a name for the beer with highest alcohol level of the brewery. This is also the case with Barley Wine from Fur Bryghus. We have chosen to illustrate this rare type of beer with the picture of one of the rarest finds on Fur. A 30cm long skull from a giant turtle which was found in 1957 by the first leader of Fur Museum, Magne Breiner. It has been named after him "Eoasphargis Breneri". 3468 bottles of this Barley Wine has been made. Strong hop sensation with a vinous warmth and flavor of dark malt, caramel and anise.

Da jeg smagte denne øl første gang, var jeg ikke synderligt begejstret. Nu har jeg haft snitterne i den igen og må indrømme at Fur er sluppet ganske heldigt fra denne Barley WIne. Vinøs og sød med et behageligt alkohol kick

Bottle. Pours clear, oily rich amber, with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt, caramel, and yeast, with a touch of lozenges. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, fruit and toffee, interspersed by bitter notes of alcohol and faint hoppy touches. Bitter, boozy finish. Sticky stuff, but not that bad.

pentaz (1223) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a short lasting fizzy white minimal head. Aroma is dried fruit- raisins prunes, bread, vanilla, red berries, sugar, marzipan, jenka, candy, anise, spiced, overripe fruit, light vinous. Taste is medium+ sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin and light sticky, carbonation is soft. Finish is alcoholic, overly candy sweet and dusty. This is too one-dimensional and at the same time off-putting.
