American Barley Wine

Barley Wine is not wine but a strong, rich, top-fermenting ale. At high strengths ale develops a wine like character, hence the name. The style is always heavy, full-bodied with a significant fruity-malt profile which is balanced out by the hop bitterness. The colour is normally dark bronze or brown. Like old ales they are often in optimal drinking condition after a length maturation period.

ABV 8-15%
