These beers are light amber to copper brown. In some brewing regions like Germany or England these styles dominant both currently and historically. Expect these beers to remind you of baked break, toast, graham crackers or biscuits. Those bready flavors should be in the forefront, but there will be some sweetness as well- think honey, caramel, sometimes even raisin like.

When you open the hand dipped bottle, your nose will be greeted with a soft, sweet, malty aroma. With your first sips, you’ll notice the flavor evolving in your mouth. The drink begins with a warm, sweet caramel. Then, a roasty malty body emerges before finishing with a bit of heat, and dryness on the palate.
When making a proper barley wine, it’s all about the right amount of residual sugar to create beautiful sweetness. This makes this an easy to drink beer that doesn’t seem like it’s 85 IBU or has over 11% ABV. In other words, be careful because this beer can sneak up on you. You have flavors of dark caramel, toffee, light coffee, dark fruit and a dash of citrus and pine on the finish.
Barleywine is Life

Barleywine, despite its name, is beer. Specifically a style of strong ale that is similar to wine in alcohol content and that many examples can be cellared for years. Highly prized by beer nerds, and certainly the beer style with most memes to its name, the daunting ABV% and intense flavors of Barleywine are nonetheless, not for everyone. But for those who enjoy these high-gravity ales, Beer Critic 'DontDrinkBeer' says it best.
