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.

rarbring (1241) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2012
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.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2011 Draught, vintage 2008. Orange to reddish brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: port, raisins. Taste: honey, dried fruit, licorice, very malty, quite a high bitterness, and some alcohol. Full and creamy mouthfeel. A nice barley wine, and my favourite from Nynäshamn.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy copper with a small creamy off white head. The aroma is a vanilla and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and vanilla oak. Easy to drink Hiding alcohol really well. A very good barleywine.

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle (25 cl) from Systembolaget. Was very surprised to see that I had not rated this beer, despite having sampled it several times. However, the colour is copper with a creamy beige head. Fruity and caramelly aroma with tropical fruits, raisins and almond paste. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Well balanced with a sweet edges. Very well done.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a nice deep red color with a small white foamy head, leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice and malty. Lots of caramel and dried fruits. Very fruity-aleish in a english-styled way. A bit vinous. Seems interesting! Flavour is sweet, malty with notes of dried fruits, toffee/caramel and liquorice. A bit "peppery" and spicey with warming alcohol. Very nice. Mouthfeel is very nice and filling. Liquid is very smooth, the carbonation is low and the beer seems very fullbodied. A bit oily. This is a very nice sipper and Nynäshamn doesn’t dissapoint. Good! Very malty and english in the style - perfect when you want something else than the more regular american "hop bomb"!

Small beige head, deep ruby colour. lots of lacing.Aroma is distinctly fruity and with hops clerly present, honey, jam, alcohol, dark fruit. Flavour is sweet and with a nice bitterness to it. Mouthfeel is lively with small bubbles, the liquid is sticky. This is the best swedish barley wine I’ve had to date!

Bottle 25cl 2010. Pours dark amber with a small beige head. Massive aroma of dates, raisins, port, honey and some alcohol. Sweet taste of dried fruits, figs, root cellar, earth and ripe apples. Medium/full body, low carbonation, low bitterness. Very nice when matured for a few years!

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2009 2009-11-09, draught at Mackinlay’s Inn, Stockholm, a keg from 2008, 7-5-9-4-17=42
Hazy dark amber color; big rocky head. The aroma starts getting a bit funky, but the additional aging has rounded out the already good malt flavor; there is the usual sugary stickyness; the bitterness is lower, the final is a bit nutty. Interesting and excellent.

2009-09-02, draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse N.68, Stockholm, 9.1% ABV, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Red mahogany color, creamy head. The caramel aroma shows some fruitness, mature apples. Strong body structure and strong caramel flavor, with just average quantity of residual sugars and good hopping, trying to add a fruity and resiny edge; alcohol perception. Bold and pleasant.

2009-02-20, bottle at Svea, Malmö, Böted, 9.1%, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Hazy dark amber to mahogany color. Pure malt aroma, with some fruity hops. It has a good body, not like American Barley Wines, strong caramel and malt flavor, with a good, overwhelming sweetness, and finally bitterness and hopping. 2/3rds English and 1/3rd American; it has very good sweet malts, bold hopping but limited fruits or resins. A crossover. Very good.

2007-09-20, cask at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Cloudy orange-amber color. Appley malt aroma. Quite strong body, sweet but not too sticky, malty, a bit fruity, with a good bitterness too; very light fruity yeast traces, so maybe the decision of ageing it longer is correct. Warming. Quite long final, still some sugars as well.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (8:4:8:4:16=4.0)
Sticky fruity hops and sherbetty aroma. Beautiful sweet malty port-wine and very nice fruity sticky hops in the taste. Plenty of malts in there. Anna says citrus, Minna says grapefruit, but to me it is the sticky resiny, perhaps English, whole hop flowers. Really pressed my buttons.
Rerate: 275ml bottle (Bryggeri, Helsinki) (8:4:9:4:17=4.2)
Very nice aged aroma - dryish and a little woody, just a hint that it’s at the limit and will start to decline before too long. Nice clear red, brief head. Total wow in the mouth. I mean, just wow! Lovely butterscotchy toffee, nice raisinyness and dates. Love the bitterness in the finish. So full, without being sticky. An ideal sipper - would be great in winter in front of an openfire. (It’s 30C out, and I’m sunburnt...) Only one thing to do once you’ve finished the bottle - have a second one!
