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.

At Borefts BF 2010. Nice toffee aroma. Sweet butter, touch of malty dryness. Sweetish, straightforward Barley wine. Lasting decent dryness. Not overly sweet, some caramel. Subtle. Not too extreme. Dominant toffee flavour.

ClubGonzo (3936) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 25, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown hazy body with a bronze taint and a big, off-white head that vanishes rather quickly. Nose is sweet, buttery caramel, malt extract, toffee and that unmistakable "Midtfyn aroma". Pretty nice, though. Taste is very, very sweet and laden with expressive, massive tones of caramel - the home-made version where you take butter, sugar and a bit of cream and simmer it in a pan until it’s brown liquid ("knekk" in Norwegian). Some raisins and booze lurk underneath the surface too, along with traces of wood and the toffee version of caramel. This is too sweet for me, but could make as a nice dessert-like sipper I guess.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep hazy chestnut-brown body with a fading beige and creamy head. Aroma is nice caramel, dark ripe fruits, roasted dates, strawberries, light grassy, pecan nuts and a hint of alcohol and yeast. Really full-bodied, average to softly carbonated and has a chewy and thick texture. You can quite feel the alcohol, and it’s really caramel-sweet. Ends with a lingering alco finish, slight stingy, and has a quite sweet aftertaste with dark malty/burned caramel. I don’t particular like it when the barlywines gets too sweet, and this one unfortunately is a tad to sweet for my liking. Noticed that this bottle has braille on the label. Nice little touch there from Midtfyns, but that does not save this from being an average barlywine.

mikkellund42 (537) - DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy nutty brown with medium light brown head. Aroma is malt syrup, wheat bread, honey and prunes. Taste is extremely sweet and light bitter. Body is syrupy with light fizzy carbonation. Finish is long and very sweet with notes of malt, caramel, blueberries and sweet chocolate. Overall very (too) sweet on it?s own but it may be nice with a dessert.

Bamsen78 (2978) - 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.
