The origins of the Barley Wine are not historically clear. However, there is a legend according to which this style of beer originated due to a dispute between England and France. The English nobility had a preference for French wines, which could not be served in times of crisis. Instead of using the traditional ales, the thirsty aristocrats demanded an adequate replacement. Resourceful brewers then developed what is known as Barley Wine: a high-proof beer that is similar to wine in complexity and heaviness.
Nottingham from the Hamburg creative brewery Kehrwieder is an ale in the style of a barley wine and boasts a fabulous 10.0% alcohol content. The complex masterpiece is brewed with five different types of hops and three types of malt. Much more important, however, is the yeast, which not only gives the beer its name but also its great taste. Nottingham is a yeast strain that develops little taste of its own, instead the yeast elicits its full potential from the hops and malt and presents a pure taste experience.
Kehrwieders Nottingham is a top-fermented beer specialty that delights with full-bodied opulence and a cornucopia of aromas. The heavy beer caresses the palate with rich notes of caramel, sweet grapes, spicy liquorice, strong resin and dark fruits. The hops also have a crisp bitterness that is complemented by a subtle citrus note.
Nottingham is a barle wine as it stands in the book: Strong, aromatic, complex and seductive.
