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.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2009
It is hazy, red-brown with a beautiful, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin, plum and figs. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, raisin, plum, caramel, figs, bread, light citrus and alcohol. The body is full and smooth, but IMO it could have been a bit more detailed and most of all, less sweet.

18-JUL-2009, Bottle. Orange/red colour with beige head. Very malty and not hoppy. Charamel and sugar cane. Alcohol noticeable, but OK to me. Very sweet and just a nice barley wine.. Good job, MB. Morten says OK.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber coloured with a medium sized light brown head. Aromas of caramal, dark fruit, pineapple and alcohol. Super sweet flavour with notes of toffee, malt, sugar and mild hops. It needs more bitterness - more balance..

UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 Bottle, at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s a clear, dark brown beer with a decent beige head. Slightly herbal nose with hints of DMS, caramel and roasted malts. Alcohol, sweetness, caramel, roasted malts, some herbal notes and a pleasant bitterness. Warming and full-bodied, with a bitter and sweet finish. Well, not my idea of a Barley Wine, but sure drinkable. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 090517

Bottle. It pours a nice, dense, beige head that has a good longevity and leaves nice lacings. The body is slightly hazy, and reddish dark brown in color. It has a nice aroma with resiny, citrusy hops over a foundation of sweetish, malty hops leaving dried fruits and some caramel. A hint of licorice and cellar lurks in the back. In the mouth it’s full-bodied and smooth, some warmth from the alcohol also shows up, especially in the very end. There’s dried fruits, some caramel and hints of licorice in the flavor, as well as a good citrusy, resiny hop impact leaving a balancing bitterness. Overall, a pretty good beer that should be more pronounced. On the other hand, it’s dangerously easy to drink the way it presents itself now. 20100428

Bottle from the supermarket across the street of the brewery. Frothy off-white almost lightbrown head. Brown amber colour. Heavy malty and nutty aroma. Modeate bitter flavor. Plum and nutty notes. Long finish. Creamy palate. Not a well-balanced barleywine.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle. Brown color. Melon, butter and flowers in the aroma. Sweet flavor, buttery with pineapple and ripe melons. Malty, but also flowery hops, especially coming up in the aftertaste. Characterful and quite good, actually.

Christian (11282) - 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....
