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.

Bottled, february 14th 2013. Dark amber bodied with a (for the strength) big beige head. Aroma of honey, herbs and ripe fruit. Taste is sweet, lots of honey and caramel, toffee, fruit and alcohol. Long bitterness, spicy sweet finish. A bit alcoholic aftertaste. A pretty good barley wine.

Ktwse (4099) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Pours hazy dark amber with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light citrus and hops. Very sweet-ish. Taste echoes that, very sweet, toffee and butterscotch like character. Finish is abrupt but sweet and light boozy, although the alcohol is controlled very well throughout. Body is medium creamy with flat carbonation.

Eructoblaster (3889) - 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.

mile (3830) - 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.

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.

tricksta_p (3617) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, fudge, raisins, ripe fruits, barley sugar. This Barley Wine is caramel fudge beer incarnate. Flavour is heavy sweetness, loads of caramel and caramelized sugar. Admirable, especially the aroma, but a bit too sweet and sticky for my taste.
