Byg is the Danish word for barley and this “mash tun maxing” brew well and truly lives up to the Barley Wine moniker. The rich, treacle-like aroma tells you something big is coming, but while there are big caramel flavours, it’s not overpoweringly sweet. Brewed in collab with cult Aussie craft brewer Moondog, it uses all Kiwi hops and spends three months in oak. The result is restrained power, as it drinks like a big ale not a huge barley wine – which it is – weighing in at 11%. More malt flavours develop as it warms and the bitterness builds up to an uber dry mouth finish, making it one beautiful, but lethal drop. Skål.
