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.

bierkoning (13132) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle. Brown color. Melon, butter and flowers in the aroma. Sweet flavor, buttery with pineapple and ripe melons. Malty, but also flowery hops, especially coming up in the aftertaste. Characterful and quite good, actually.

thewolf (12482) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours deep red with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet. Some buttery character, raspberries and sweet caramel malts. Low carbonation, good oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit sticky sweet, light alcohol and a sweet raspberry finish. Good brew, but far too sweet for me.

Rune (12249) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2010
About 100ml poured from a bottle. Ring around the rim of the glass atop of a deep, dark amber body. Vinous aroma of dried fruits. Jam-like flavour with raisin, apricot and other dried fruits joined by sweet dark malts. Dry warming alcohol. Well bodied. Should be a great sipper. Very sweet, though (CBF, 06.05.2010).

Pinball (12032) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
hazy amber, smooth light yellow head. hoppy spicy barley wine aroma, a little bit too much old beer aroma, but that’s just me not very fond of old beer style barley wine’s in general. Flavor is old beer (faint), sweetness (hay or sugarish), caramel, candy. raisins, nice warming barley wine, however a toffee like bitterness is a bit of a distractor from the otherwise nice flavor profile.

Bottle: Almost clear, chestnut-amber coloured, slowly collapsing off-White creamy head; mild to moderate raisiny and nutty nose, a small amout of toasted malt detectable; moderate to solid sweet sugary flavour, barely full bodied, quite soft; lingering sweet vinous and boozy finish with a slight tartness in the very end. Sweet and monotonous...
