Roodbruin bier met redelijke schuimkraag. Zoet, port, iets lekkerder en koolzuurhoudender dan de Barley Brew van Gourmet Bryghuset.

Overall, this was an excellent beer, and I can see it being paired with vanilla ice cream or lamb as a main course. Pours with a cloudy mahogany color, culminating in a medium-sized tan head that disappears quite quickly. Not a tremendous amount of lacing with this one. The nose was sweet: caramel, butter, dark fruits – very sugary. The mouth feel was syrupy and the flavor was wonderfully sweet, much like the nose, and with a distinct alcohol taste. I will certainly try this one again. Would certainly try it again.

50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Best before 2012-09-02. Amber orange colour wirh a very small head. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Lots of caramel, brown sugar and malt in the aroma, but also fruity. The alcohol is also prominant as you would expect in a barley wine. Flavour is sweet with almost no bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness is very well hidden. There is some alcohol, but it’s soon replaced by the sweet flavours of malts, brown sugar, fruityness and caramel notes. This is a scary beer as you don’t notice the alcohol before the end of the bottle and your head is suddenly woozy. Subtle, but lingering aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep hazy chestnut-brown body with a fading beige and creamy head. Aroma is nice caramel, dark ripe fruits, roasted dates, strawberries, light grassy, pecan nuts and a hint of alcohol and yeast. Really full-bodied, average to softly carbonated and has a chewy and thick texture. You can quite feel the alcohol, and it’s really caramel-sweet. Ends with a lingering alco finish, slight stingy, and has a quite sweet aftertaste with dark malty/burned caramel. I don’t particular like it when the barlywines gets too sweet, and this one unfortunately is a tad to sweet for my liking. Noticed that this bottle has braille on the label. Nice little touch there from Midtfyns, but that does not save this from being an average barlywine.
