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.

mile (2969) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness. Body is medium to full, malty and sugary sweet flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sugary sweet, caramel and light fruitiness, light alcohol. Way too sweet BW - lacks character. Really nothing but sugary sweetness.

jesperhammer (2865) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2009
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.

Ober (2809) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2009
A little hazy brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of sweet caramel with some chocolate and fruits. The taste is sweet with a little bitter. There is some choclate with spices. A little sticky. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter with spices. Also a bit burny.

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Clear caramel colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, wine, raisins, malts, wood and alcohol. Caramel flavour, quite sweet, raisins, some madeira notes, feels aged. Finish caramel and raisins. Nice!

VastActiv (2782) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle 0.5l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. BBE 02-09-2012. Well, this is ole bottle so aromas and flavours are practically raisins, sweetness and malts.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2009
Flaske: Flot brun rød øl med et tyndt skumhoved. Ikke så megen karbonering men det går fint til den udtalte portvins aroma. Humlen er til at tage og føle på og bakker den frugtige sødme rigtig godt op. En dejlig øl der virkelig er drikbar foran kaminen eller istedet for netop portvin.

Habanero (2575) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2011
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.

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff okt-13: kobberfarget med flott off-white cremeskum. Barley wine er en farlig god stilart, og Midtfyns utgave er med sin aroma og smak av malt, karamell og tørkede frukter nok en kompetent og ganevennlig utgave. Valnøtter og blåmuggost hadde vært midt i blinken akkurat nå!

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2009
Hazy, red colered brew. Aroma of raisins, caramel malts, sweetness, tart. Flavor is sweet, bourbon, chocolate. Thick texture. Could be a bit more complex, straightforward.
