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.

Pours a coppery colored with a small head. Aroma of oxidised caramels. Sweet with dark fruits. Taste is sweet malts and liquified dates. A very faint metallic hint, probably due to the oxidation. Full bodied with soft co2.

ruigo (1291) - 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.

harrisoni (14214) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
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 (4280) - 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.
