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.

esox (1068) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2010
Hazy ruby colour, thin but creamy head. Raisiny fruitiness with rich and creamy caramel, some herbal hops in the nose. Some booze when cold. Caramelly sweet flavor, sweet fruits, low bitterness. Raisiny, caramelly and heba finish with some alcoholic warmth. A bit thin maybe. Oily texture, low carbonation. Nice BW, not excellent.

Bottle. Pours amber, with a small creamy head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malts, as well as grain, oak, toffee and a whiff of alcohol. Flavour is sweet and quite smoky, with coffee, chocolate, molasses as well as toffee and alcohol giving a sweetness sticking through the finish.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber coloured with a medium sized light brown head. Aromas of caramal, dark fruit, pineapple and alcohol. Super sweet flavour with notes of toffee, malt, sugar and mild hops. It needs more bitterness - more balance..

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2011
50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Best before 2012-09-02. Amber orange colour wirh a very small head. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Lots of caramel, brown sugar and malt in the aroma, but also fruity. The alcohol is also prominant as you would expect in a barley wine. Flavour is sweet with almost no bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness is very well hidden. There is some alcohol, but it’s soon replaced by the sweet flavours of malts, brown sugar, fruityness and caramel notes. This is a scary beer as you don’t notice the alcohol before the end of the bottle and your head is suddenly woozy. Subtle, but lingering aftertaste.

Holy (833) - GERMANY - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle @BBF 2010. Highs: Strong sweet flavor (and I’m not a Barley Wine fan...). Lows: An odd scent in the nose, couldn’t quite place it and the sip overwhelmed anything there. Nice.

ej (703) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Pours a coppery colored with a small head. Aroma of oxidised caramels. Sweet with dark fruits. Taste is sweet malts and liquified dates. A very faint metallic hint, probably due to the oxidation. Full bodied with soft co2.

BeerGolem (682) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours caramel brown with beige head and some lacing. Aroma is all about barley and caramel. Same for the taste, which goes along some hints of hops. Sweetness is well balanced. Alcohol well hidden despite ABV. Thick mouthfeel. Some warming alcohol. Excellent BW!
