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.

500mL bottle, pours an opaque dark amber / mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, vegetal notes, and dark fruits. Flavour brings out caramel malt, toffee, and residual sugars. Very well-balanced, without too much residual sugars. Decent stuff.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2009
It is hazy, red-brown with a beautiful, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin, plum and figs. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, raisin, plum, caramel, figs, bread, light citrus and alcohol. The body is full and smooth, but IMO it could have been a bit more detailed and most of all, less sweet.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2010
About 100ml poured from a bottle. Ring around the rim of the glass atop of a deep, dark amber body. Vinous aroma of dried fruits. Jam-like flavour with raisin, apricot and other dried fruits joined by sweet dark malts. Dry warming alcohol. Well bodied. Should be a great sipper. Very sweet, though (CBF, 06.05.2010).

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Almost clear, chestnut-amber coloured, slowly collapsing off-White creamy head; mild to moderate raisiny and nutty nose, a small amout of toasted malt detectable; moderate to solid sweet sugary flavour, barely full bodied, quite soft; lingering sweet vinous and boozy finish with a slight tartness in the very end. Sweet and monotonous...
