Type: American Barleywine
Despite its name, the fact that its alcohol range is more similar to that of a wine (7.0-12.0%), and it can be cellared like a wine, Barleywine is still very much a beer. They can range from being very sweet to bittersweet, and generally exhibit a strong malty character intermingled with spiced fruit.
