Commercial descriptionThe brewer markets this same or near-same product by more than one names. This can be the result of a brewer distributing this beer under different names in different countries, or the brewer simply changing the name, but not the recipe at different points in time.
Barleywines are strong, unfiltered ales that are often compared to port wine rather than beer. They are high in alcohol (ours is 9.6% by volume), very full-bodied, and often high in bitterness. The robustness of barleywines comes from the huge quantities of malt required to produce them: ours uses twice as much malt as our pale ale. It is brewed with three hop additions, and is dry-hopped with a new variety called Ahatum.
