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.

espenra (926) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2011
50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Best before 2012-09-02. Amber orange colour wirh a very small head. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Lots of caramel, brown sugar and malt in the aroma, but also fruity. The alcohol is also prominant as you would expect in a barley wine. Flavour is sweet with almost no bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness is very well hidden. There is some alcohol, but it’s soon replaced by the sweet flavours of malts, brown sugar, fruityness and caramel notes. This is a scary beer as you don’t notice the alcohol before the end of the bottle and your head is suddenly woozy. Subtle, but lingering aftertaste.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep hazy chestnut-brown body with a fading beige and creamy head. Aroma is nice caramel, dark ripe fruits, roasted dates, strawberries, light grassy, pecan nuts and a hint of alcohol and yeast. Really full-bodied, average to softly carbonated and has a chewy and thick texture. You can quite feel the alcohol, and it’s really caramel-sweet. Ends with a lingering alco finish, slight stingy, and has a quite sweet aftertaste with dark malty/burned caramel. I don’t particular like it when the barlywines gets too sweet, and this one unfortunately is a tad to sweet for my liking. Noticed that this bottle has braille on the label. Nice little touch there from Midtfyns, but that does not save this from being an average barlywine.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dried fruit and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet and alcoholic finish. Not as sweet and alcoholic as many other barley wines. 181010

omhper (21282) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2011
Bottled at Carlsens Kvarter, Odense. Hazy mahogany colour, lasting head. Malty bready nose. Sweet with some some strawberry esters, full bodied with lovely deep malt character. Very English style barle ywine, where rich deep malt by far outweighs hops. Mildy warming finish. Lovely!

esp0r (2370) - NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle. Amber red, finger thick tanned head. Aroma of prunes, raisins and roasted malts. Very fruity indeed. Taste is same with tons of sweetness. Also light hints of chocolate. Almost like a dessert wine this. Finish is quite bitter with some interesting hops. Feel is quite sticky. A pretty good Barley Wine
