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.

Koelschtrinker (17675) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 3, 2012
Süßer, dann zuckrig werdender Antrunk. Wenig getreidig, das dunkle Malz geht in der Süße unter. Schade, denn später wird das Bier schokoladiger. Cremig. Süß, süß, süß! 11/8/4/7/9/8

Countbeer (6221) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2011
Draught: Small vast yellow ish head, that disappears very slow. Very hazy amber/orange colored beer. Smell fruit, orange, malts, caramel, light toasted malts, barleys. Smells good. Taste is even better: sticky barleys, sticky malts, some sweets like caramel, some light brown sugars, herbs, light bitter and the slightest hint of honey. Nice (sticky) barley/malty light bitter/herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily sticky thick creamy texture. Delicious beer, well balanced and smooth.

23.10.2011. 0,5l Bottle. Dark amber brown colour with a thin layered off-white head. Aroma is rich malty with lots of malty flavours, caramel and roasted sweetness. This beer has a wonderful smell. Very good flavours of caramel malt. Very sweet with strong notes of alcohol. Low on bitterness. There is some nice, very soft tones of flowers and aroma hops at the back of this beer. Conclusion: Sweet caramel and very good.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)
