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.

At Borefts BF 2010. Nice toffee aroma. Sweet butter, touch of malty dryness. Sweetish, straightforward Barley wine. Lasting decent dryness. Not overly sweet, some caramel. Subtle. Not too extreme. Dominant toffee flavour.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 Bottle, at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s a clear, dark brown beer with a decent beige head. Slightly herbal nose with hints of DMS, caramel and roasted malts. Alcohol, sweetness, caramel, roasted malts, some herbal notes and a pleasant bitterness. Warming and full-bodied, with a bitter and sweet finish. Well, not my idea of a Barley Wine, but sure drinkable. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 090517

Bottle. It pours a nice, dense, beige head that has a good longevity and leaves nice lacings. The body is slightly hazy, and reddish dark brown in color. It has a nice aroma with resiny, citrusy hops over a foundation of sweetish, malty hops leaving dried fruits and some caramel. A hint of licorice and cellar lurks in the back. In the mouth it’s full-bodied and smooth, some warmth from the alcohol also shows up, especially in the very end. There’s dried fruits, some caramel and hints of licorice in the flavor, as well as a good citrusy, resiny hop impact leaving a balancing bitterness. Overall, a pretty good beer that should be more pronounced. On the other hand, it’s dangerously easy to drink the way it presents itself now. 20100428

MiP (14563) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle at KØ09. Sherry aroma, seems a little oxidized. Clear dark brown colour. No head. Peppery flavour, very caramelly and extremely sweet. Way too sweet, and not balanced enough by the alcohol which is actually quite strong.
