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.

[Sampled with the duo Svoger & Svogergylp at DØE, Valby, 2009.] Barleywine for everybody. In my eyes many barleywines are too much challenging or just not good enough, although I like the style. Thisone is great with mellow mouthfeel and a very wellbalanced mix of flavors. Notes of warming alcohol. dried fruits, caramel, positive bitterness, port, fullfillness. All very welldone. My next speech will be with thisone!

Nose is full of sugary caramel with really mild hops. A small ring persists but nothing more. Mouthfeel is syrupy, treacle-like almost. Pretty sweet but not overly so, an honest bitterness cutting into it. Overall a nice english barleywine, can’t wait to try more from these guys!

Amber with an off white head - sweet malt aromas that are very good - nice sweet malt body with some caramel and some alcohol heat in a very nice way - lingering maltyness in the finish with some caramel and a nice heat from alcohol - this was very good

For some reason I’ve hardly had any barley wines since I started my ratebeer career, i.e. I’ve hardly had any barley wines whatsoever. If this one is representative for the style however, I’m looking forward to explore this type of beer in meticulous detail! The off-white, frothy head is a bit small and it ends up as a ring of ever-lasting bubbles at the walls of the glass, plus some filmy remnants that are partially covering the beautiful, clear, dark amber to red body. The strong aroma is malty, hoppy and sugary sweet with some nice notes of overripe fruits, faint dried dark fruits. It smells vinous, with notes of port wine. The taste is very, very sweet, and even if the long-lasting finish is moderate to heavy bitter it’s not quite enough to tame the massive sweetness. Strong flavours of overripe grapefruit and other fruits, sweet sweet caramel (Smørbukk), toffee, vanilla and faint dried dark fruits. Wonderful mouthfeel, it’s smooth and creamy, softly carbonated with tiny bubbles and the body is full. An amazing beer, that I probably would have liked even better if it was a bit less sweet or a bit more bitter.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 10 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

tricksta_p (1106) - 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.
