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.

mikkellund42 (494) - DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy nutty brown with medium light brown head. Aroma is malt syrup, wheat bread, honey and prunes. Taste is extremely sweet and light bitter. Body is syrupy with light fizzy carbonation. Finish is long and very sweet with notes of malt, caramel, blueberries and sweet chocolate. Overall very (too) sweet on it?s own but it may be nice with a dessert.

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of malt, caramel and fruits. Taste is sweet and complex with notes of malt, lots of different fruits, caramel, spices and alcohol. Full body and oily texture. Long sweet aftertaste of malt, caramel and fruits with a boozy finish. Quite good.

lefossoyeur (430) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Clear copper with some floaties and a minimal white head. Classic aromas of caramel, candi, sweet fruits. Full body, low carbonation, very sweet, banana , finishing on a banana cake note and warming finale. A bit sticky, but very classic for the style.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)

odgaard (377) - Skyum, Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2009
Hazy dark marhogny with a small beige head. Aroma: Barley, bread, sugar, plum, raisin, yeast, maybe a little chocolate, alc. Taste: sweet, burning alc,, but ok balanced by the bitterness. A little too sweet, but still a good and complex beer.

TyggaBrown (376) - NORWAY - OCT 21, 2013
This is great beer, but to be honest I really think some of the barleys from Norway are a lot better. This one really smells of alcohol, more than I’ve experienced before, as well as plums, dark grapes, heavy bitterness, great level of sweetness, and caramel, cocoa and coffee. Great, and well balanced, but not as full bodied and balanced as the best ones.

IPAgutten79 (362) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2013
Upåklagelig utseende, mørk gylden med skyhøyt skum. Duften er humle, malt, frukt og karamell. Smaken er masse humle, karamell og hint av alkohol. Søte frukter, veldig søte, med litt bitterhet i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens. Grei nok, men ble for søt og mektig for meg.
