Barley Wine

A Barley Wine is a strong, top-fermenting ale, with an alcohol content of at least 9% and up to 13% (or more) by volume. Hops may be hardly noticeable at all or very noticeable. Sip them out of a glass that will concentrate the aroma, such as a snifter. Barley wines often pair well with desserts. Includes Wheat Wines.

Premium members can view the top 50 in each style category. Nonpremium members will be able to see the top 25.
