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.

Christian (11132) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Bottled at Sir Club. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, mostly caramel and bready notes. Quite sweet malty flavour, with some alcohol. A few years ago, I wrote that it might improve with age. Now, it has improved simply by becoming a.much better beer....

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle at KØ09. Sherry aroma, seems a little oxidized. Clear dark brown colour. No head. Peppery flavour, very caramelly and extremely sweet. Way too sweet, and not balanced enough by the alcohol which is actually quite strong.
