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.

jookos (2638) - 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.

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 (2251) - SWEDEN - 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.
