Also known as Portsmouth Barleywine
Commercial description
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.
