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.

Holmen1 (6681) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff okt-13: kobberfarget med flott off-white cremeskum. Barley wine er en farlig god stilart, og Midtfyns utgave er med sin aroma og smak av malt, karamell og tørkede frukter nok en kompetent og ganevennlig utgave. Valnøtter og blåmuggost hadde vært midt i blinken akkurat nå!

Boutip (6633) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramelized sugar notes is quite intense though doesn’t fall into gross territory. Taste is also dominated by very nice toffee and caramelized sugar notes with limited amount of piney hops. Body is full with god carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. I really enjoyed this beer since it veered closer to English-style barley wine with well balanced flavours.

Countbeer (6589) - 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.

MichaelAwesome (6546) - 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.

DutchDrebus (6328) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle @ joes thx to joes. Amber to brown colour with a small off-white head. Smells wine, wood, alochol. Tastes sweet, alcoholic, intense. Full body, soft carbo.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Terracotta pour, clear, yet quite sedimented at the bottom, covered by a quickly fading head. Highly aromatic, very English aroma where vibrant fruity esters poke the rich biscuity, caramelly, honeyed, toffee laden, sweet yet satisfyingly balanced toasted maltiness. Brightly extracted malt flavours quickly bring that ale to sweetness levels that are beyong my usual preferences. Its almost intense fruitiness, of an almost juicy nature, especially taking into account the very soft, almost timid carbonation, acts as a counterbalance to the malt’s sweetness, bringing the focus to a vinous territory, one of a dessert wine, perhaps, but one where ample, chewy texture never feels quite syrupy and minimal, tea-like hops, maintain the focus with eloquence. Broad fruit range covered here: plum, peach, white grape ans strawberry: a fruit salad amid a strong cerealic foundation. Staying two-dimensional throughout - fruit and caramelly malts - but doing it with conviction and no abuse. Surprisingly very impressive to me.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2014
Red amber body and bubbly instable head. Pleasant herbal hops over amber malts. Sort of English ale with Eastern European appeal. Interesting but unexpected. Very sweet, but not quite the aromatics to justify these. Warming alcohol overpowers too. Unbalanced. (50cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

3.7
skortila (6014) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has caramel malts, raisin, some bread/rye and toffee. Hazy, red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, bit vinous, quite malty (caramel/toffee, raisin). Good body. okay beer.

3.6
altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle from Danish Deli, Lux. Hazy copper body with medium head. Nose is sweet, caramel, floral. Taste is honey, barley, sweet, malts and some caramel. Barley really kicks in. Sticky, creamy texture. Enjoyable.
