A barley wine typically reaches an alcohol strength of 8 to 12% by volume and is brewed from specific gravities as high as 1.12. Use of the word wine is due to its alcoholic strength similar to a wine; but since it is made from grain rather than fruit, it is, in fact, a beer. There are two primary styles of barley wine: the American which tends to be more hoppy and bitter with colours ranging from amber to light brown[6] and the English style which tends to be less bitter and may have little hop flavour, with more variety in colour ranging from red-gold to opaque black.
