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.

ClubGonzo (3512) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle, 2009 edition. Pours a clear nougat brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is reminiscent of hard, cream-based caramel ("knekk" in Norwegian) with nougat, whale nuts and hints of molasses and vanilla. Taste is burnt caramel, "knekk" again, wood, vanilla, port wine, molasses and hints of alcohol and deep malts. Amazingly complex and nice. Smooth, creamy palate befitting the cream-caramel-wood-port profile that’s being dished out over my taste buds with each sip. Truly delicious and a fantastic surprise from Nynäshamn - I’m gonna get this again if I can!

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle at the traditional lake tour 22 des 2011. Deep amber colour with a beige head. Sweet nose, caramel, toffe. Not that heavy sweet as many barley wines, well blended at not a massive alcohol flavour either, fruity, caramel, toffe.

Det här är en bra barley wine med mycket och kraftig smak som präglas av humle, sötma och lite syra. Den höga alkoholhalten märks knappt och den är en ren fröjd att förtära.

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle, pours amber with small head. Aroma is bread, nuts, caramel. Taste is as aroma but some dark fruits also. Low carbon. Good and interesting, perfect on a gothemburg-shitweather day like this.

25cl bottle. Pours hazy copper with a small light brown head. Smells very nutty malty. Tastes sweet nutty malty with a similar finish.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him & heavy (thanks!) Reddish/pale brown coloured, small off-white head, sticky light alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic and overripe fruits with notes of caramel. Very dry bitter finish. Nice one.

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - NOV 29, 2011
2009 edition. Brown with some sediment. Dark, aged aromas, Port/sherry like oxidation. Ripe, dried fruit, plums, figs, sweet maltyness. Taste follows the nose. Fullish body, pretty long finish. More madeira-like than the barley wines I know. A strong figs presence. Nice acquaintance, well made, but one is plenty for me.

Another one of Per’s "mints on the pillow" :D. Shared with ogivlado and heavy... and it almost wasn’t... It was one of the beers I took to drink during the seminar (mostly to share with the infidels/newbies to draw them to our side), and it was in and out of the fridge, surviving a party only because we were thrown out of the room we were in and I figured that rating it outside in the dark would be heresy. So it went all the way back to Sweden, through Hungary to Croatia. Not a journey as epic as Bergenbier Nefiltrata’s, but still cool. And I’m damn glad I shared it with the Croatian crew! Anyway, poured a murky dark amber-brown body with a small off whtie head. Sweet malty nose, overwhelming? hm. Coffee, sticky caramel, some dust. Sweet, creamy honeyish taste, neither too aggressive nor cloying, only slightly sticky. The only trace of alcohol is the warmth in the end. Not terribly complex but a damn solid beer, and a Barleywine I actually like, which is always a thing of joy and wonder heh. Nynäshamns is more than capable of brewing very good even great beer, so no wonder! And yeah, another thanks to our own omhper :).

pours reddish brown with low head aromas are oaky, a bit smoky, some sweetness and breadyness. overall dark tones. oaky flavor. not the typical sweeeeet barley. lowly carbonated. fills mouth and has an ok mildy bitter ending.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2011
09 Bottle. Pours a nice copper/dark reddish color with a beige head. Aroma is filled with dark fruits like raisins and figs, some alcohol notes, brown sugar, caramel malts and toffee notes. The flavor has a fairly apparent alcohol flavor with the caramel and toffee, brown sugar, dark fruits like the raisins and figs and butterscotch like notes. The body is medium to full with a dry motuhfeel. Overall a solid English style Barley.
