American versions of barleywine are big in malt flavour as well as alcohol. They leave a hoppy yet floral aroma behind. It has a hint of grain and a little taste of sweet wine. It tastes deliciously creamy with strong caramel flavours. The sweetness is finely balanced by the bitterness of hops. The aftertaste of sweetness lingers for long before you get a metallic taste. Your mouth will feel creamy but not viscous. Barleywine is simply flavorful. Cheers!
