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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 24, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a redbrown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is hops and sweetness, a little thin. The flavor is bolder than the aroma, but follows the nose. The palate is bitterness and sweetness. Overall this beer could use some more sweetness.

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!

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2011
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.

rodenbach99 (3582) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Bouteille de 50cl. Meilleure avant le 30.05.2014. 10,0 alc/vol. Gros pssst à l’ouverture, grosse mousse sur une bière brune trouble. Le nez est presque tout en caramel. En bouche le liquide est sucré, facile à boire. Une touche de houblon agrémente cette masse de malt. Simple et peu complexe, facile à boire.

Holmen1 (3547) - 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!

jesperhammer (3496) - 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.

jookos (3495) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from the zwergs. Amber brown. Butterscotch vanilla, burnt caramel, some darker fruity notes, towards raisins. Full bodied, with sweet cola flavours. Interesting. Isn’t as dark musty as many, but really cola- like sweet. Overripe musty fruits. I’m not really a fan of the style, but nice clean flavourful stuff.

mile (3428) - 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.

Eructoblaster (3366) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a cloudy amber/caramel body with a thin off-white creamy head. Sharp hoppy taste with citrusy, vanilla, and some woody hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Its hoppy taste carries fruity, yeasty, and caramel notes. Texture is soft and finish is vineous, warming. Very enjoyable.
