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.

ruigo (2318) - PORTUGAL - OCT 9, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear reddish amber colour with a small off-white head. Raisin, plums and caramel in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is too sweet, with some liquorice notes. Overall, a fulsome sweet beer than can turn into something boring.

Fred82 (2139) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
500ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Deep amber with medium foamy head.
Aroma : Rich caramel with rich piny and herbal hops. Light resinous notes. Great malty caramel. Toffee.
Taste : Caramel with herbal and piny hops. Not very heavy on the piny. Finish caramel and herbal hops, light resinous and piny notes. Fairly persistent caramel on the finish with light hops and light alcohol. Some toffee on the late finish.
Palate : Moderate carbonation. Maybe a bit on the high side for the style.
Overall : Really nice example of the style. Nothing fancy but very well executed. I really enjoy the balance between hops and malt. The malt is quite nice and the hops are not taking too much space in the profile. A very elegant barley wine.

Roodbruin bier met redelijke schuimkraag. Zoet, port, iets lekkerder en koolzuurhoudender dan de Barley Brew van Gourmet Bryghuset.
