COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine (Bygvin) stammer helt tilbage fra Napoleonskrigene, hvor englænderne måtte finde et alternativ til vin, da man anså det for upatriotisk at drikke franske vine. Midtfyns Barley Wine er også et godt alternativ til vin, og den passer godt til milde og cremede oste, men også til ”fed” mad som ” Osso Buco”, kalvekæber eller svineskank, eventuelt marineret i vores Barley Wine. Den høje alkoholstyrke og bitterhed suppleres godt af maltsødmen, og smagen af karamel, sirup og egetræ, gør denne Barley Wine til en øl med mange og varme smagsnuancer.

esox (1028) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2010
Hazy ruby colour, thin but creamy head. Raisiny fruitiness with rich and creamy caramel, some herbal hops in the nose. Some booze when cold. Caramelly sweet flavor, sweet fruits, low bitterness. Raisiny, caramelly and heba finish with some alcoholic warmth. A bit thin maybe. Oily texture, low carbonation. Nice BW, not excellent.

(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 9 Oct 2010) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of red berries, caramel and vinous hints of alcohol. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red berries, sweet and vinous finish with a spicy bitterness. Almost full body, fairly sweet with warming alcohol. Nice barley wine, possibly a bit boozy.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Aroma; A very sweet, malt nose with caramell, mocca, a hint of nuts maybe? Flavours; More yeasty flavours in the mouth, with some yeast, leather going over to caramell, sweet coffee and brown sugar. Summary; Not an overwhelming BW, and that´s what I like about it. You can have a whole bottle without totally feeling up my stomach.

mjs (4498) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2010
(Bottle, BBE 21-01-2012, at Mallaskukko, Turku) Aroma combined dark fruits and malts nicely. Alcohol forced its way through, too, but not too intensely. Palate was really dry which made me think the beer might not be fresh - no problem with this style. Strong maltiness continued in the taste with some dried plum and medium bitterness and sweetness. For such a strong and heavy brew this was easy to drink and flavour remained nice all the time.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle at home. Aroma of cough syrup, caramel, dark malts, some spices and sugar. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic, quite round and thick bodied. A tiny hint of diacetyl, but nothing to worry about. Nice brew.

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2010
Medium beige head. Deep dark red body. Syrupy fruity papery aroma with floral caramel and earth notes. Dry-sweet earthy floral fruity taste with roasty sherry and paper notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly hot mouthfeel. Dry earthy fruity wild berry aftertaste with toffee floral musty notes. There are also smoky ash notes. It’s fairly sweet. Delicate, harmonic, and subtle, but slightly unfresh and musty. Still a great beer. (0.5l bottle, Fish and Beer, Copenhagen.)
