COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hornbeer Barleywine is a golden coloured beer with high carbonation and a bit of extra hops making it fresh to drink even if it is a strong thing of 10% alcohol. Barleywine is a desert beer that should be served in small glasses, preferably wine glasses, in order to be able to enjoy the handsome colour and the carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. We have brewed our barleywine on 5 different barley malts, wheat malt, sugar, hops, yeast and water. The beer has refermented on the bottle - therefore, it might have some yeast bottom residues.

Rätt mild i arom och smak men bra balans. Hel del beska i smaken. Mörkt brun i kroppen.

PapaVillum (382) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, 50 års-gave fra Michael Drejer - tak! 5. juni 2014. Mahogni-farvet - med rød/brune nuancer - og ufiltreret Barley Wine med 4 cm offwhite-farvet skumtop, som svinder til knap 1 cm. Dét, der rammer næsen først, er humlearoma. Måske lidt gær. Og smagen er ligeså mere humlet, end man er vant til fra de sødere belgiere. Hvilket brygger Jørgen også lover på etiketten. Jeg har før smagt humlede Barley Wine's, men denne her har et lidt charmerende lille twist af sødme uden,) at det reelt spiller en rolle. Alligevel vil nogle trofaste "Quadrupel"-fans falde fra grundet den humlede á la IPA-smag. Indholdet af kuldioxid er forholdsvis højt for denne øltype, men dette er også gjort bevidst fra bryggerens side for at give dette stærke bryg et frisk pust. En god solid og med-mening Barley Wine fra Hornbeer, som altid holder et højt niveau, brygmæssigt.

sir__v (577) - Lille, FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Color: golden amber beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: high malt complexity with sugar notes as sugar cane and brown sugar. Taste: nice malt and fruity notes as crystallized apricot. Nice high viscosity on mouth with good sugar balance. Great beer. Aftertaste: nice equilibrium of malt, sugar and bitterness. Really drinkable! Great beer!!!

erickok (3414) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Golden to amber colour and high carbonation to give a bubbly head. All the typical barley wine aromas are there although it is not on the sweet side of the barley wine scale. Well developed, not cloying. Caramel, sticky fruit compote, even some leather. Really liked this one, fits my taste buds very well. (Bottle shared by Fux in between festival sessions during the 1FRBG)

merzbeer (8) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2014 does not count
On draught @ Craft Beer in Brighton, U.K. This beer is very curious. On the nose, it smells of Juicy Juice left in the sun. As far as taste goes, it's not your typical barley wine. Much hoppier and much more carbonated. A thick mouth feel, but not syrupy like other barley wines. Caramel-sweet, with a dark amber color.

@Nedre Mölla 16/5-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Humlig, karamell, fruktig. Smak: Dito + sötma. Kroppen är fyllig, avslutningen humlig med tydlig beska.

w_adwersarz (113) - Cracow, POLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Aromat ładny cukierkowy, odrobinę likierowy, owocowy. Barwa bursztynowa lekko w miedź lecąca, na zdjęciu piana trochę wymuszona, kremowa. Piwo lekko opalizujące, ładnie pracujące. Piana fajnie koronkuje na szkle. Wysycenie wysokie, raczej wytrawne, słodkie rodzynkowe, odrobineczka chleba, zioła. 10% bardzo dobrze zamaskowane, pijalne.

andriesradu (452) - ROMANIA - APR 8, 2014
Draught @ Animal bar. Pours dark amber with a moderate white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, candy, alchool. Flavor is quite the same, sweet, candy, caramel, a bit hoppy with a light bitter finish
