Beers by Type » Barley Wine

Barley wine"s name is inspired by the high alcohol content of the beer, normally between 9 and 12 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Other than getting better with age, the beer itself has little else in common with wine, although it may, over time, gain a sherry-like aroma. Barley wines have a low hop flavour and, because of their alcohol content, are very malty. Fruit and caramel flavours may be present.
