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.

Eructoblaster (4099) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a cloudy amber/caramel body with a thin off-white creamy head. Sharp hoppy taste with citrusy, vanilla, and some woody hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Its hoppy taste carries fruity, yeasty, and caramel notes. Texture is soft and finish is vineous, warming. Very enjoyable.

Boutip (6212) - 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.

lefossoyeur (612) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Clear copper with some floaties and a minimal white head. Classic aromas of caramel, candi, sweet fruits. Full body, low carbonation, very sweet, banana , finishing on a banana cake note and warming finale. A bit sticky, but very classic for the style.

Kamol (22) - POLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle 0,5, bought at Havnens Vin & Tobakshus. Pours red, orange-ish, almost without a foam. Aroma reminds of a plum kompot, generally, dried fruits. Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Very good beer.

Five year old bottle! Pours a clear reddish amber with a big, white head. Aroma has sweets, caramel, prunes, figs, overripe orange. Taste is sweet with lots of malts, caramel, slight hops. Boozy finish and an oily body.

Jak na barley wine ma spore wysycenie. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, beżowa. Dziurawi się i opada. Kolor bursztynowy, zamglone. W aromacie słodowe z wyraźna nutą chmielową. Później karmel i zioła. W smaku przyjemnie owocowe, lekko ziołowe. Nie jest bardzo gęste w odczuciu, ale czuć ekstrakt. Przyjemna goryczka, wymieszana z wytrawną nutą owocową. Jest kontra słodowa, ale nie bardzo wysoka. Alkohol świetnie zamaskowany, grzeje w przełyku. Piwo dość gęste, lekko syropowe, ale nie jest słodkie. Pozostawia przyjemny goryczkowy i "suchy"posmak. Przyjemne barley wine.
