En vällagrad barleywine med inslag av frukt, karamell, fikon och stor maltighet.

Bötet Barley Wine har fått sitt namn från den udde som Järflöttaboarna använde för att ro mellan ön och fastlandet. Barley Wine är er stark engelsk öltyp som uppkom under 1700-1800 tal. Tre olika sorters karamellmalt ger ölet en stor maltighet och den 7 månaders långa tanklagringen ger en fin balans. Som alla våra öl är den opasteuriserad -och bryggd med omsorg ochk kärlek.

Note: Unaged, nameless version pre-released in september 2007. Officially released as Bötet Barley Wine in september 2008.

250 ml bottle, vintage 2011. Aroma sweet, with apricots, figs, alcohol. Taste sharp, like fermented mature fruits. Dry apricots, caramel and lots of alcohol.

Thanks to tkrjukoff for this one. Pours a murky orange with an off-white head. Nose is toffee, some light hops, some slight oxidation, and prunes, figs, and barleywine fruits. Flavor is also barleywine fruits with some mild hops and yeasty bitterness in the back. Medium in body and interesting overall.

Big thanks to markwise for scoring me this barleywine brew while we were in Denver. The 33cl bottle pours with a hazy amber body with copper hues that supports a lasting tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet honey and brown sugar covered prunes, plums and apples followed by a slight mineral yeastiness. The taste is similar with esteriness mixed with almost honey sweetness to malts sweetness. To midway it picks up pine to spicy hoppiness.

Aroma: The smell is, as should be, vinous - Port, Madeira. Sweet dried fruits, figs, dates. Fermentation and yeast.
Appearance: The beer is brown, red hints, with a firm beige head leaving lots of lacing.
Taste: Abundantly sweet, dried apricots, spices, cloves. A good bitter balance, bitter almond.
Palate: Rather good carbonation, small fresh bubbles, yet a firm feeling.
Overall: I have difficulties rating barley wines, barely beers as they are. But to me this was rather accessible.
Note: Bottle 250 ml. (Vintage 2010) Reviewed 2011-07-16.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Not much head, but dark and nice. Difficult to say what is in the damp aroma, maybe some apple, but its not pleasant. Licorice in taste. Maybe it will be better storef away for a year. This one 10/11-2012. 2011 version. Tasted the 2012 version (25/12-2013) and I have to say it’s a pleasant beer. Don’t know if I evolved or if this one is better. Would rate this around 3,5.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Rating #100! Bottle from Systembolaget, 2011 vintage. Pours a dark amber with a off white lacing. Pear, caramel malt, figs, sweet and floral hoppy notes to the nose. Taste is dominated by caramel malt but there’s apricot, figs and some raisin as well. A notable warming alcohol sensation at the end which is a bit dry as well as bitter. Medium body, low carbonation. A bit thinner than expected but still a good barley wine. 2010 vintage has caramel malt and bitter orange marmalade and sweetness all over the nose. Taste is sweet malty with raisins and plums and also has some dry chocolate and wood to it. Heating sensation at the end. Thicker feel than the 2011 vintage.

Melker (253) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 2011 vintage. Amber colour, small off-white head which disappears quickly. Lovely aroma of caramel, butterscotch, dark fruits, cinnamon and bread. Complex taste. Sweet malts, maybe a bit smokey. Bitter aftertaste... 2010 vintage (2013 march): Sweeter, more fruits, less caramel. Less bitterness than 2011. Aroma reminds me a lot of port wine. Enjoyable but I prefer 2011.

Clear dark amber colour, medium size off-white head with decent retention. Aroma of pear brandy and biscuits. Malty and sweet with a little sting from the alcohol and a slight bitterness in the finish. Medium to full mouthfeel. Medium to low carbonation. Could be a little heftier, but this is a really good English style barley wine

Hygglig. Lite väl mycket smak av julöl för min del . Humlen överröstas av karamell och vin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ktwse (4099) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle from SB, 2012 edition. Pours medium brown with a light reddish hue, clear, with a light tan medium head. Looks lovely. Aroma is quite fresh with grass and hay, then caramel malt, dough, nuts, banana, and just a hint of toffee. Taste is perfectly balanced between a nice bitter and a very pleasant sweet that last through the start and all the way to the - slightly too abrupt - finish. Body is medium to full, creamy AND slightly sticky, with low carbonation. As far as I can remember, the 2011 was better, but this is still a very nice barley wine.
