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.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2011
Draught: Small vast yellow ish head, that disappears very slow. Very hazy amber/orange colored beer. Smell fruit, orange, malts, caramel, light toasted malts, barleys. Smells good. Taste is even better: sticky barleys, sticky malts, some sweets like caramel, some light brown sugars, herbs, light bitter and the slightest hint of honey. Nice (sticky) barley/malty light bitter/herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily sticky thick creamy texture. Delicious beer, well balanced and smooth.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - DEC 2, 2011
Clear chestnut brown with a small baige head. Caramel malt aroma, nuts and alchohol, little vinouse. Nice balanced sweet alchoholic flavor, light bitterness. Not too complex, but wellbalanced and smooth for a 10 abv

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, mahogany with a little, off-white head leaving a fair lace. Nose of dried fruit and caramel. Sweet flavor of raisins, caramel and orange. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up slightly bitter and an alcohol bite. A nice barley sipper.

RuneStumo (2143) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2011
23.10.2011. 0,5l Bottle. Dark amber brown colour with a thin layered off-white head. Aroma is rich malty with lots of malty flavours, caramel and roasted sweetness. This beer has a wonderful smell. Very good flavours of caramel malt. Very sweet with strong notes of alcohol. Low on bitterness. There is some nice, very soft tones of flowers and aroma hops at the back of this beer. Conclusion: Sweet caramel and very good.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)

MaartenRF10 (1539) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2011
Roodbruin bier met redelijke schuimkraag. Zoet, port, iets lekkerder en koolzuurhoudender dan de Barley Brew van Gourmet Bryghuset.

stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2011
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.

Bottle. Clear amber body with a medium white head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, alcohol, sweetness. Flavor is sweet caramel, notes of butter, wood, dried fruit. Forever lasting lacings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
