Like the English barleywines, American barleywines are among the highest strength beers available (at least 8% alcohol by volume, normally more than 10%, and sometimes much higher), which is where their name is derived (like wine made from barley instead of grapes). They are typically amber to light brown in color with varying head sizes, sometimes cloudiness, and very thick bodies. Within the spectrum of beer styles, American barleywines are stronger (alcohol and malt) than strong ales. The same is generally true relative to imperial IPAs, although the latter are typically more strongly hopped. American barleywines are distinguished from their English siblings in that they are generally hoppier in aroma, flavor, and bitterness and feature American hops.
