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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Thanks to Simon from In de Wildeman for giving me this!! Appearance is dark amber, slightly clear, thin head dissipating, light lace. Aroma is smell caramel, toffee, raisin, fruity esters, light american hops, slight oxidations, big sweet fruity ester. Flavor is earthy leather, caramel sweet malt, toffee, brown sugar, raisin, slight apple. Smooth in the finish wiht a nice green grassy bitterness- overall a pretty solid barleywine.

Sigmund (5010) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2011
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.0%. Copper colour, large off-white head. Malty aroma, also strong notes of dark dried fruits and caramel, hints of oak. The fairly sweet flavour has notes of dark dried fruits, brown syrup and plenty of caramel, hints of oak. The bitterness is quite moderate, a little more wouldn’t hurt. Still a decent barleywine. I hate myself for not having some Blue Stilton cheese to go with it.

Poured deep amber/brown in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, toffee, vegetables, and slight diacetyl. Medium body. Viscous, the slightly sticky texture. Soft to average carbonation. Malt, diacetyl, toffee, vegetable finish is medium sweet and slightly sticky. 10%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
