This really isn't wine. It's called that because of the high alcohol content. It's a British style ale and is very intense. Barley wine can be served at room temperature in a brandy snifter…or cold. Bottle in small bottles because it's a commitment to drink 12 oz. And you might not want to operate any large farm equipment after consuming barley wine.
