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.

50cl flaske. Brun med off-white skum - holder kort tid. Meget sød med smag af karamel og kandiseret sukker. En tand for sød for min smag.

dambor (65) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2014
Pours dark orange with almost no head. Aroma: hopps, heavy malt aroma, "fruit with sugar", a touch of spices. Taste: pretty complex and heavy, with some taste of honey, caramel, strong malt character, hops, a bif of liquorish aftertaste. Pretty sweet, but at the same time not outbalanced. A very good barley wine.

McWorta (636) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 16, 2014
Deep ornge honey coloure beer with a soft dark white head. On the nose aromas of butterscotch, toffee, wet grass-hay and faintly resin-wood-herbal notes arise. The texture is rather softly with a full body. Sweet butterscotch flavour with hints of herbal notes. The finish is lasting with a pleasant linger of herbal-butterscotch. Nice and goes well with Gorgonzola.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Almost clear, chestnut-amber coloured, slowly collapsing off-White creamy head; mild to moderate raisiny and nutty nose, a small amout of toasted malt detectable; moderate to solid sweet sugary flavour, barely full bodied, quite soft; lingering sweet vinous and boozy finish with a slight tartness in the very end. Sweet and monotonous...

ruigo (1158) - PORTUGAL - OCT 9, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear reddish amber colour with a small off-white head. Raisin, plums and caramel in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is too sweet, with some liquorice notes. Overall, a fulsome sweet beer than can turn into something boring.
