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.

StoutHead (943) - 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.

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..

IPAgutten79 (913) - 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.

Holy (837) - 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.

BeerGolem (784) - 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!

mikkellund42 (755) - 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.
