Dock Street will launch barley wine.

In February, Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewery & Restaurant will tap its first kegs of barley wine.

According to a brewery spokesperson, the barley wine, which has an alcohol content of 10-12 percent, is black in color with mahogany accents, malty and vinous notes and a strong espresso overtone. The malt character is additionally complemented with an "assertive hoppiness" due to the Northern Brewer hops used in the boil and an additional five weeks of dry hopping with Fuggles, the brewer said.

Dock Street's barley wine required over 1,400 pound of grain to produce eight barrels (compared to about 400 pounds for its regular beer), and was in production for four months.

The brew will be served in a six-ounce tulip flute along with a chocolate pate and biscotti.
