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.

dambor (157) - 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.

McTapps (5363) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Wonderful aroma of intense barley, plums and warm bread. Taste of barley, malt, wine, sherry, chocolate, plums, prunes and vanilla. Hints of rum and oak. Very warming, quaffable and tasty beer. Loved it.

KoNrRiI (694) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
0.5 bottle. Hazy, light brown color with an orange tinge and a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, cheese, little bit of grapes, and a touch of malts. Taste is sweet and malty; it features cheese, fruits, some syrup, hints of caramel, and delicate honey. Medium body, creamy texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is a little sourer with a delicate vinous tone and perhaps a bit off balance but still shows some class. Overall a fantastic beer, not even as much as a hint of alcohol throughout.

jesperhammer (3372) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2009
18-JUL-2009, Bottle. Orange/red colour with beige head. Very malty and not hoppy. Charamel and sugar cane. Alcohol noticeable, but OK to me. Very sweet and just a nice barley wine.. Good job, MB. Morten says OK.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Thanks to Simon from In de Wildeman for giving me this!! Appearance is dark amber, slightly clear, thin head dissipating, light lace. Aroma is smell caramel, toffee, raisin, fruity esters, light american hops, slight oxidations, big sweet fruity ester. Flavor is earthy leather, caramel sweet malt, toffee, brown sugar, raisin, slight apple. Smooth in the finish wiht a nice green grassy bitterness- overall a pretty solid barleywine.

Beer4000 (4982) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Amber body with a nice off-white head. Aroma of sweet, ripe fruit, malt and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, some roast, dry fruit, warming alcohol and moderate bitter. Rather sweet, but very nice.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Aroma; A very sweet, malt nose with caramell, mocca, a hint of nuts maybe? Flavours; More yeasty flavours in the mouth, with some yeast, leather going over to caramell, sweet coffee and brown sugar. Summary; Not an overwhelming BW, and that´s what I like about it. You can have a whole bottle without totally feeling up my stomach.

Eructoblaster (3294) - 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.
