Barleywine

Barley wine or Barleywine is a style of strong ale originating in England in the nineteenth century (derived from the March or October beers of the 18th century) but now brewed worldwide.

The first beer to be marketed as Barley Wine was Bass No. 1 Ale, around 1900. The term "barley wine" had been used before in other contexts, for example in translations of Xenophon's Anabasis (although it may have referred to regular grape wine with cooked barley in it).
