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.

larsga (7102) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2010
Medium beige head. Deep dark red body. Syrupy fruity papery aroma with floral caramel and earth notes. Dry-sweet earthy floral fruity taste with roasty sherry and paper notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly hot mouthfeel. Dry earthy fruity wild berry aftertaste with toffee floral musty notes. There are also smoky ash notes. It’s fairly sweet. Delicate, harmonic, and subtle, but slightly unfresh and musty. Still a great beer. (0.5l bottle, Fish and Beer, Copenhagen.)

Cunningham (6556) - 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

McTapps (6350) - Reutlingen, 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.

MichaelAwesome (6297) - 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.
