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.

Bottle from Danish Deli, Lux. Hazy copper body with medium head. Nose is sweet, caramel, floral. Taste is honey, barley, sweet, malts and some caramel. Barley really kicks in. Sticky, creamy texture. Enjoyable.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy dark ruby with a small, firm and tanned head. Sweet and grainy, very malty aroma with lots of creamy toffee and a touch of strawberry. Flavor is sweet and biscuity-malty with (straw)berries, toffee, cream, dried fruit, and some smooth-n-warming alcohol. Quite full body, thick and creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. A somewhat sweet and straightforward, but clean and enjoyable barley wine.

Bamsen78 (4689) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt, yeast and caramel. Booze in the long nose. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with fruity and estery touches and pronounced, bitter alcohol notes. Bittersweet aftertaste with mild hints of metal. An OK Barley Wine, but I have tasted better beers of this style.

erickok (4621) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2014
Red amber body and bubbly instable head. Pleasant herbal hops over amber malts. Sort of English ale with Eastern European appeal. Interesting but unexpected. Very sweet, but not quite the aromatics to justify these. Warming alcohol overpowers too. Unbalanced. (50cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

VastActiv (4487) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle 0.5l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. BBE 02-09-2012. Well, this is ole bottle so aromas and flavours are practically raisins, sweetness and malts.

SlovakSniper (4340) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
(50 cl. Meilleure avant le 30-05-2014) Un vin d’orge ambré qui développe une mousse dense et pleine de ténacité. Une dentelle éparse qui évolue sur la paroi de mon verre. Un nez très intéressant. Une fondation richement maltée. Du caramel fruité et du toffee anglais. Des notes de brandy et des effluves de vanille. Une réflexion houblonnée épicée et herbeuse. Des saveurs qui ne peuvent décevoir mes papilles. Un malt abondant, réchauffé par un alcool floral et poivré, avec, comme ultime munition, la beauté savoureuse d’une fine liqueur fruitée. En bouche, un vin d’orge qui propose un corps dense, huileux et pourvu d’un pétillement mobile. Une finale toute en douceur, décadente par ses déclinaisons céréalières, et justement sauvée par un alcool chaud et parfumé qui s’impose avec opportunité. Une bière riche et voluptueuse qui ne révolutionne pas le style mais qui me permet de passer un moment agréable et presque enchanteur.

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Clear caramel colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, wine, raisins, malts, wood and alcohol. Caramel flavour, quite sweet, raisins, some madeira notes, feels aged. Finish caramel and raisins. Nice!
(From bottle @ joes. Thanks for sharing, Joris!)

jookos (4233) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from the zwergs. Amber brown. Butterscotch vanilla, burnt caramel, some darker fruity notes, towards raisins. Full bodied, with sweet cola flavours. Interesting. Isn’t as dark musty as many, but really cola- like sweet. Overripe musty fruits. I’m not really a fan of the style, but nice clean flavourful stuff.
