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.

[Sampled with the duo Svoger & Svogergylp at DØE, Valby, 2009.] Barleywine for everybody. In my eyes many barleywines are too much challenging or just not good enough, although I like the style. Thisone is great with mellow mouthfeel and a very wellbalanced mix of flavors. Notes of warming alcohol. dried fruits, caramel, positive bitterness, port, fullfillness. All very welldone. My next speech will be with thisone!

Vestergaard (948) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Five year old bottle! Pours a clear reddish amber with a big, white head. Aroma has sweets, caramel, prunes, figs, overripe orange. Taste is sweet with lots of malts, caramel, slight hops. Boozy finish and an oily body.

Foffern (1439) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle at home. Three year old bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a small beige head that fades fast. Compact aroma of liqueur, caramel, leather, oak, marzipan, dried apricot and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet and powerful, similar but with more toffee, liqueur, oak and brown sugar. Full-bodied, silky mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A heavy, complex and sweet BW.

KoNrRiI (789) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
0.5 bottle. Hazy, light brown color with an orange tinge and a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, cheese, little bit of grapes, and a touch of malts. Taste is sweet and malty; it features cheese, fruits, some syrup, hints of caramel, and delicate honey. Medium body, creamy texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is a little sourer with a delicate vinous tone and perhaps a bit off balance but still shows some class. Overall a fantastic beer, not even as much as a hint of alcohol throughout.

Milter (362) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
Clear dark amber brew with a small off-white head that lasts long. Aroma is malty, with some presence of ripe fruits, some oak as well and some slight alcohol. Hoppy notes as well. Realy nice nose. Taste is syrupy sweet with a clear touch of its aroma. Pretty autumn-like if you ask me with clear notes of the fruits and the hops. Some caramel, raisins, honey, oak as well with a nice grassy bitterish and warming end which has some dryish notes in it, despite being largely sweet. Truly an interesting aspect of this enjoyable, tasty rich brew. Full bodied, mouthfeel is pretty sticky and syrupy. Carbonation is quite low. Beautiful deep, well-balanced brew that is tasty in every way. Good sipper for the darker days of the year. Has some great ageing potential as well, which I will definitely do with a next bottle.

Idiosynkrasie (5012) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
500ml bottle. Barely clear, deep copper colour with small to average, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish malty aroma, notes of raisin, plum, caramel, candied fruit, a touch of sherry, marsala. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, hints of orange liqueur, sugar powder, a touch of raisin and plum; temperate sweetness, well hidden alcohol. Oily texture, soft, minimally sticky palate.
