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.

Ktwse (1975) - SWEDEN - 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.

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
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.

Sparf (116) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Kraftig och komplex doft med plommon, russin, karamellierad malt och en viss jästton. En vacker kopparaktigt brun färg och ett för typen vanligt snabbt försvinnande skum. Smaken domineras av en komplex malt där även toner av melass, honung och kola finns. Alkoholen märks men avrundat behaglig snarare än vass. Känslan är fyllig och fet, närmast oljig. Eftersmaken bjuder på en träton och en avklingande söt malt. På det hela taget en ok barley wine med mer maltkraft än elegans.

Bottle from balderbitch - thank you a lot. Strong one for sure but with not a big hint of alcohol at all. Nice, really fruity and quite filled with plums and raisins. Definitely a great one for the colder autmun evenings. Superb piwo with superb aromas.

Bottle at the the Pre-Zwanze tasting - London. Thanks to Paul. Pours clear amber with a fine, creamy tan head. Nose has some oxidised malts, dried fruits, toffee. Big sweet flavor, pleasant aged character, toasty bread, dry toffee. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lots of cake, toffee, figs. Very tasty stuff. The years have added some interesting nuance here.
