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.

Gluepot (200) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
Malt with some sourness in the nose. A subtle mixture of caramel, peaches, and pears on top of buscuity malt. Very European in that it is rich, sweet and has no evidence of hops. Well crafted but quite one sided.

Foffern (1473) - 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.
