COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine (Bygvin) stammer helt tilbage fra Napoleonskrigene, hvor englænderne måtte finde et alternativ til vin, da man anså det for upatriotisk at drikke franske vine. Midtfyns Barley Wine er også et godt alternativ til vin, og den passer godt til milde og cremede oste, men også til ”fed” mad som ” Osso Buco”, kalvekæber eller svineskank, eventuelt marineret i vores Barley Wine. Den høje alkoholstyrke og bitterhed suppleres godt af maltsødmen, og smagen af karamel, sirup og egetræ, gør denne Barley Wine til en øl med mange og varme smagsnuancer.

espenra (1006) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2011
50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Best before 2012-09-02. Amber orange colour wirh a very small head. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Lots of caramel, brown sugar and malt in the aroma, but also fruity. The alcohol is also prominant as you would expect in a barley wine. Flavour is sweet with almost no bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness is very well hidden. There is some alcohol, but it’s soon replaced by the sweet flavours of malts, brown sugar, fruityness and caramel notes. This is a scary beer as you don’t notice the alcohol before the end of the bottle and your head is suddenly woozy. Subtle, but lingering aftertaste.

StoutHead (954) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of malt, caramel and fruits. Taste is sweet and complex with notes of malt, lots of different fruits, caramel, spices and alcohol. Full body and oily texture. Long sweet aftertaste of malt, caramel and fruits with a boozy finish. Quite good.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber coloured with a medium sized light brown head. Aromas of caramal, dark fruit, pineapple and alcohol. Super sweet flavour with notes of toffee, malt, sugar and mild hops. It needs more bitterness - more balance..

IPAgutten79 (931) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2013
Upåklagelig utseende, mørk gylden med skyhøyt skum. Duften er humle, malt, frukt og karamell. Smaken er masse humle, karamell og hint av alkohol. Søte frukter, veldig søte, med litt bitterhet i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens. Grei nok, men ble for søt og mektig for meg.

puren (893) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - DEC 12, 2016
OCZY: klarowne, głęboko ciemnobursztynowe, symboliczna piana znika wraz z końcem nalewania;
NOS: pieczone jabłko, cukier trzcinowy, słodki agrest, likier z pomarańczy i brzoskwini, miód akacjowy, nuta herbaciana, retronosowo spirytus;
USTA: ciało wysokie, średnio nasycone, lekko puszyste, przyjemnie grzeje, ale nie gardło, a trzewia, leciutko zakleja ślinianki;
JĘZYK: słodkie - herbata z miodem, cukier trzcinowy, spirytus, biszkopcik, karmel, lekka krótka drewniana goryczka ;
OGÓLNIE: przyzwoite piwko, wydaje mi się, że zamyka się w stylu, jednak po BW można oczekiwać więcej; minusem jest przebijający się a w dodatku niefajnie spirytusowy alkohol.
