Session #12 – Barley Wines

The SessionBarley wines can come in many colors but one thing remains constant, they will knock you on your ass if you’re not careful. Brewed to a minimum of 8.4% (often far stronger) most barley wines take a few months to complete fermentation because of the copious amounts of sugar the yeast needs to process. This leaves Barley Wines with a sweet, rich flavor profile. American-style Barley Wines are often power hopped with American hops to over-power the residual sweetness whereas English-Style Barley Wines tend to accentuate that sweet malty profile.
