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.

Taste: Sweet malty, vinous and fruity. Very well hidden alcohol.

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 12 Des 12. Amber. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som fester seg litt til glasset. God fruktig aroma med innslag av blomster. Silkemyk på tunga. Smaken balansert. Frukt. Plommer. Tørket frukt. Alkoholen merkes med en behagelig sødme og varmevirkning.

larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2010
Medium beige head. Deep dark red body. Syrupy fruity papery aroma with floral caramel and earth notes. Dry-sweet earthy floral fruity taste with roasty sherry and paper notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly hot mouthfeel. Dry earthy fruity wild berry aftertaste with toffee floral musty notes. There are also smoky ash notes. It’s fairly sweet. Delicate, harmonic, and subtle, but slightly unfresh and musty. Still a great beer. (0.5l bottle, Fish and Beer, Copenhagen.)

3.7
Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
500ml bottle. Barely clear, deep copper colour with small to average, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish malty aroma, notes of raisin, plum, caramel, candied fruit, a touch of sherry, marsala. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, hints of orange liqueur, sugar powder, a touch of raisin and plum; temperate sweetness, well hidden alcohol. Oily texture, soft, minimally sticky palate.

3.5
Sigmund (7487) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2011
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.0%. Copper colour, large off-white head. Malty aroma, also strong notes of dark dried fruits and caramel, hints of oak. The fairly sweet flavour has notes of dark dried fruits, brown syrup and plenty of caramel, hints of oak. The bitterness is quite moderate, a little more wouldn’t hurt. Still a decent barleywine. I hate myself for not having some Blue Stilton cheese to go with it.

mjs (7357) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2010
(Bottle, BBE 21-01-2012, at Mallaskukko, Turku) Aroma combined dark fruits and malts nicely. Alcohol forced its way through, too, but not too intensely. Palate was really dry which made me think the beer might not be fresh - no problem with this style. Strong maltiness continued in the taste with some dried plum and medium bitterness and sweetness. For such a strong and heavy brew this was easy to drink and flavour remained nice all the time.

BBE 15-03-2014 - Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of sticky sweet syrupy notes, hints of caramel, gooseberries and spices. Taste is sweet, malty, caramely with notes of gooseberries and syrup. Finish is sweetish and caramely. Decent, quite sweet and malty barley wine.
