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.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Bouteille de 50cl. Meilleure avant le 30.05.2014. 10,0 alc/vol. Gros pssst à l’ouverture, grosse mousse sur une bière brune trouble. Le nez est presque tout en caramel. En bouche le liquide est sucré, facile à boire. Une touche de houblon agrémente cette masse de malt. Simple et peu complexe, facile à boire.

Eructoblaster (2852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a cloudy amber/caramel body with a thin off-white creamy head. Sharp hoppy taste with citrusy, vanilla, and some woody hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Its hoppy taste carries fruity, yeasty, and caramel notes. Texture is soft and finish is vineous, warming. Very enjoyable.

SlovakSniper (2810) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, 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.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2009
A little hazy brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of sweet caramel with some chocolate and fruits. The taste is sweet with a little bitter. There is some choclate with spices. A little sticky. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter with spices. Also a bit burny.

mile (2738) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness. Body is medium to full, malty and sugary sweet flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sugary sweet, caramel and light fruitiness, light alcohol. Way too sweet BW - lacks character. Really nothing but sugary sweetness.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2010
Draught at SBWF 2010 (Elixir Wine). It poured a hazy amber liquid with a small white head. This is a well balanced Barley Wine, with a thick malty body and nice sweetness.

Bamsen78 (2411) - 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.
