COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Appearance is dark brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet of raisins, prune and hops. Taste is very sweet of prunes, toffee and raisins but still a little sharp and hopy. Overall a very pleasant surprise that probably can mature in to a grate beer.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Small lacings. The smell is nice and smooth with notes of dried fruits, malts, raisins, chocolate and a flare of hops. The flavor is sweet and chewy with lots of caramel malts to the fore and notes of dried fruits, raisins, syrup and powdered chocolate. The finish is somewhat warming and bitter and has hints of sweet alcohol and earthy hops. Full bodied and smooth with a slightly dry finish, A bit one-sided at the moment but I really think this could develop some depth and complexity with a little age to it.

Bottled. The aroma has caramel and raisiny malts, some grapefruit hoppiness. Clear, amber-red coloured beer with a lasting off-white head. The taste is sweet, has toffee, hops, raisins mainly. Belly-warming beer. Alcohol present. Nice.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2009
Sampled from bottle at SMOF. Vintage 07. Copper colour, pretty low head. Almond paste and cognac in aroma. Nice higher alcohols. Obvious alcohol in flavour, it gets too much, and becomes bitter. Nice solid maltiness, but lacking the bold malt kick I want in a Barly Wine. Not all complex. Or not that outspoken. Alcool dominates and lingers unfortunately after 2 years in bottle.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours deep red copper with a big, yellowish head. Potent citrus hops and raisins aroma. Raisins, toffee and grapefruit flavours, all perfectly balanced. A very enjoyable barley wine- harmonious and dangerously drinkable.
