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.

Vaiz (3617) - 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 (6372) - 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.)

Draught at SBWF 2010 (Elixir Wine). It poured a hazy amber liquid with a small white head. This is a well balanced Barley Wine, with a thick malty body and nice sweetness.

0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Red-brown color. Sweet aroma with juicy berries and toffee. Sweet toffeish and berryish flavor with red currant and caramel. Stylewise english barley wine, which is not one of my flavourite styles.

@CPH BeerFest2010. Slightly hazy rubyish brown colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts, alcohol, raisins, some mild vanilla as well as some fudge and mild fruityness. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Pleasant.

Rune (8702) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2010
About 100ml poured from a bottle. Ring around the rim of the glass atop of a deep, dark amber body. Vinous aroma of dried fruits. Jam-like flavour with raisin, apricot and other dried fruits joined by sweet dark malts. Dry warming alcohol. Well bodied. Should be a great sipper. Very sweet, though (CBF, 06.05.2010).
