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.

Bamsen78 (4395) - 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 (4304) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - 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)

Medium to almost full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness. Malty and warming finish.

olsvammel (4140) - 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.

SlovakSniper (3894) - 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.

Vaiz (3834) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle at home. Aroma of cough syrup, caramel, dark malts, some spices and sugar. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic, quite round and thick bodied. A tiny hint of diacetyl, but nothing to worry about. Nice brew.
