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.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Terracotta pour, clear, yet quite sedimented at the bottom, covered by a quickly fading head. Highly aromatic, very English aroma where vibrant fruity esters poke the rich biscuity, caramelly, honeyed, toffee laden, sweet yet satisfyingly balanced toasted maltiness. Brightly extracted malt flavours quickly bring that ale to sweetness levels that are beyong my usual preferences. Its almost intense fruitiness, of an almost juicy nature, especially taking into account the very soft, almost timid carbonation, acts as a counterbalance to the malt’s sweetness, bringing the focus to a vinous territory, one of a dessert wine, perhaps, but one where ample, chewy texture never feels quite syrupy and minimal, tea-like hops, maintain the focus with eloquence. Broad fruit range covered here: plum, peach, white grape ans strawberry: a fruit salad amid a strong cerealic foundation. Staying two-dimensional throughout - fruit and caramelly malts - but doing it with conviction and no abuse. Surprisingly very impressive to me.

(small gusher) pours hazy medium dark golden, red tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. intense barley sugar, toffee and caramel, very fruity - sweet brandied fruits, calvados, grass, pepper, chalk, hint of garbage notes. warming alcohol. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, mild minty-grassy-peppery finish. sweet if not cloying offering. unbalanced but still a nice sipper.

McTapps (5933) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Wonderful aroma of intense barley, plums and warm bread. Taste of barley, malt, wine, sherry, chocolate, plums, prunes and vanilla. Hints of rum and oak. Very warming, quaffable and tasty beer. Loved it.

Cunningham (5921) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2013
Appearance: Clear deep copper color with a tan head. Off white head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Fruity and sweet malty.
Palate: Medium to full body. Sweet and a mild bitterness. Average to soft carbonation.
Taste: Sweet malty, vinous and fruity. Very well hidden alcohol.
Overall impression: A bit to sweet for me. Probably a quite typical barley wine as it should be. I am a hop head..
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Fredrikstad, Norway

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Nice and thick one here shared with McTapps. High drinkability, high gravity and lots of fruity + dark aromas. Berries, plums, some malt and alcohol. Reminding me of a high alcohol fruit syrup = special but fine.
