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.

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.

olsvammel (6851) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2010
Draught at SBWF 2010 (Elixir Wine). It poured a hazy amber liquid with a small white head. This is a well balanced Barley Wine, with a thick malty body and nice sweetness.

McTapps (6791) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Wonderful aroma of intense barley, plums and warm bread. Taste of barley, malt, wine, sherry, chocolate, plums, prunes and vanilla. Hints of rum and oak. Very warming, quaffable and tasty beer. Loved it.

MichaelAwesome (6503) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Nice and thick one here shared with McTapps. High drinkability, high gravity and lots of fruity + dark aromas. Berries, plums, some malt and alcohol. Reminding me of a high alcohol fruit syrup = special but fine.

VastActiv (6475) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle 0.5l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. BBE 02-09-2012. Well, this is ole bottle so aromas and flavours are practically raisins, sweetness and malts.

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2011
Draught: Small vast yellow ish head, that disappears very slow. Very hazy amber/orange colored beer. Smell fruit, orange, malts, caramel, light toasted malts, barleys. Smells good. Taste is even better: sticky barleys, sticky malts, some sweets like caramel, some light brown sugars, herbs, light bitter and the slightest hint of honey. Nice (sticky) barley/malty light bitter/herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily sticky thick creamy texture. Delicious beer, well balanced and smooth.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Amber body with a nice off-white head. Aroma of sweet, ripe fruit, malt and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, some roast, dry fruit, warming alcohol and moderate bitter. Rather sweet, but very nice.

jookos (6243) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from the zwergs. Amber brown. Butterscotch vanilla, burnt caramel, some darker fruity notes, towards raisins. Full bodied, with sweet cola flavours. Interesting. Isn’t as dark musty as many, but really cola- like sweet. Overripe musty fruits. I’m not really a fan of the style, but nice clean flavourful stuff.
