Danish: Jacobsen Barley Wine 2011 er en rødgylden, fyldig og ganske sødlig øl med en tæt voluminøs skumkrone. Øllets høje viskositet giver det næsten et hedvinsagtigt udseende i glasset. Duftbilledet er præget af rige noter af malt med en frugtsødlig humlearoma. Derudover gemmer sig fine noter af karamel, røde bær og toffee. Smagen er sødmefuld med en rund fylde og en ganske prangende og varmende vinøsitet.
Jacobsen Barley Wine 2011 brygges i et meget begrænset parti på 5000 flasker. Øllet kan nydes nu, men vil vinde ved at ligge 2-3 år og gerne længere i mørke og kølige omgivelser. Øllet egner sig fortrinligt til karakterfulde oste og til desserter.

It is a beautiful red golden ale. The aroma is a great enjoyment of malt and dark dried fruits like raisins, prunes and figs. Taste-wise it is a little different than other typical barley wines. It is indeed very malty and sweet and hides thereby the tingling sensation as the alcohol very often give in a barley wine. It is like a dry port wine with plenty of fruit flavor and a light taste of mild licorice and tobacco. Long distinct aftertaste with great vinousity. It will be an elegant companion for desserts that are not too screeching sweet, maybe something with a little sour berry fruits to offset its sweetness level. I enjoy it now as a ’stand-alone’ ale and think it’s quite tasty and brewed perfectly.
