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.

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 3, 2012
Süßer, dann zuckrig werdender Antrunk. Wenig getreidig, das dunkle Malz geht in der Süße unter. Schade, denn später wird das Bier schokoladiger. Cremig. Süß, süß, süß! 11/8/4/7/9/8

Christian (11423) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Bottled at Sir Club. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, mostly caramel and bready notes. Quite sweet malty flavour, with some alcohol. A few years ago, I wrote that it might improve with age. Now, it has improved simply by becoming a.much better beer....

thewolf (11314) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours deep red with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet. Some buttery character, raspberries and sweet caramel malts. Low carbonation, good oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit sticky sweet, light alcohol and a sweet raspberry finish. Good brew, but far too sweet for me.

HenrikSoegaard (11139) - Randers, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle from the supermarket across the street of the brewery. Frothy off-white almost lightbrown head. Brown amber colour. Heavy malty and nutty aroma. Modeate bitter flavor. Plum and nutty notes. Long finish. Creamy palate. Not a well-balanced barleywine.

Pinball (11025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
hazy amber, smooth light yellow head. hoppy spicy barley wine aroma, a little bit too much old beer aroma, but that’s just me not very fond of old beer style barley wine’s in general. Flavor is old beer (faint), sweetness (hay or sugarish), caramel, candy. raisins, nice warming barley wine, however a toffee like bitterness is a bit of a distractor from the otherwise nice flavor profile.

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle. Brown color. Melon, butter and flowers in the aroma. Sweet flavor, buttery with pineapple and ripe melons. Malty, but also flowery hops, especially coming up in the aftertaste. Characterful and quite good, actually.
