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.

Rune (8823) - 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).

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2010
Bottled. A cloudy deep red beer with a lazing red-brown head. The aroma has strong notes of over ripe fruits and alcohol, as well as medium notes of malt and wood. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol, over ripe fruits, and malt, as well as medium notes of caramel and wood, leading to a sweet and smooth finish. The alcohol tickles and warms the palate.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Thanks to Simon from In de Wildeman for giving me this!! Appearance is dark amber, slightly clear, thin head dissipating, light lace. Aroma is smell caramel, toffee, raisin, fruity esters, light american hops, slight oxidations, big sweet fruity ester. Flavor is earthy leather, caramel sweet malt, toffee, brown sugar, raisin, slight apple. Smooth in the finish wiht a nice green grassy bitterness- overall a pretty solid barleywine.

Pinball (11024) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
hazy amber, smooth light yellow head. hoppy spicy barley wine aroma, a little bit too much old beer aroma, but that’s just me not very fond of old beer style barley wine’s in general. Flavor is old beer (faint), sweetness (hay or sugarish), caramel, candy. raisins, nice warming barley wine, however a toffee like bitterness is a bit of a distractor from the otherwise nice flavor profile.

Hazy, red colered brew. Aroma of raisins, caramel malts, sweetness, tart. Flavor is sweet, bourbon, chocolate. Thick texture. Could be a bit more complex, straightforward.
