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.

Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
2010 bottle. Pours out dark amber with a thin ring of head. Evolving aroma of fruit cake, cognac fruitiness, prune and chocolate. Slight medicinal quality. Taste is not quite so complex, more toffee-heavy, doesn’t show as many nuances as the aroma. Not as sweet as I thought. Mouthfeel a little thin and undefined. Solid barley wine but not top tier.

Bottle. Big treacly malt nose, oranges, nuts, something slightly meaty and savory. Orange-brown with lace. Oily, silky body. Sweet flavor of treacle, orange, caramel, with a peppery hop finish. Nice balance.

TimE (3123) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2013
Pale brown color. Sweet malty, burnt raisins, brown sugar, frangelico, treacles, very strong nose. The mouth is sweet malty, with brown sugar and burnt raisins. Big full bodied, moderately hoppy. Warming. Enjoyable, but after the nose it is a bit directionless.

Leini (740) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2013
Sample at a tasting. 2012 year edition. Red, with a thin white head. Will most likely benefit of being forgotten a while, as it was quite unbalanced.

Scopey (6672) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle shared at the Pre-Zwanze. It pours dark brown with a small white head. The nose is freshly baked bread, fruit cake, raisin, toffee, brown sugar and light oxidation. The taste is raisin, toffee, earth, caramel, butterscotch, honey and sweet fruit cake. Medium body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Wow...pretty damn sweet! A desert beer for sure, but a challenging drink if you don’t have a sweet tooth!

McTapps (3890) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2013
Pours out in a deep dark amber / brown colour with steady low head and smooth body. Delicious nose of plums and raisins. Taste of raisins, rum, cask, oak, plums, sour berries and nuts. Hints of thin coffee and chocolate. Light sour touch, but deeply enjoyable and nice. Enjoyed it a lot, though I missed some body and deepness.
