COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in small batches annually to commemorate Uinta’s anniversary, this soul-warming brew is now available year-round. (Uinta’s anniversary is observed and noted by the change of the roman numeral on the label.) Uinta’s award winning barley wine has a dark amber hue with a rich malty character. Serious amounts of hops are used to balance its hardy alcohol content of over 10% ABV. Originating in England in the nineteenth century, barley wines are brewed with the same traditional ingredients as beer: water, malted barley, hops and yeast. There are no grapes or fruit used in the brewing process. The name “barley wine” refers to its alcohol content being similar to that of most wines, ranging from 8.5% to 14% ABV. Unlike most beers, barley wines age remarkably well. If you have the will power, set an Anniversary Barley Wine aside for a year or more.

Vignale (2056) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Flaska från SB. Söt, fruktig doft med mango, grape, citruszest, tall, ananas, honung, karamell och alkoholvärme. Stor söt men framförallt besk smak. En stor BW med allt vad det innebär men en riktigt elak beska med maskros och grapevitebeska som gör att man sippar i små doser. Rejäl maltsötma, karamell, smörkakor, frukt men i slutänden mest besk. Lite för så i min bok.

maxwelldeux (3661) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle at a barley wine tasting. Pours a reddish amber color. Nose has some slight caramel and booziness to it. Taste is slightly sweet, and ends up being a remarkably easy drink. OK.

(Bottle). Lovely fresh scent of hops with aromas of sweet tropical fruits. Sweet taste of malt, slightly over-ripe tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt, raisins and alcohol. Much sweet sticky alcohol in the aftertaste. Well? Impressive beer, but how palatable is it really? In my mouth a little too much flavor of sweet toffee. But okay, 10,4 % ABV is not noticeable too much in the taste, and that it is impressive!

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Poured into a wine glass. Fruity and toffee aroma. Taste of bread, caramel, herbs and alcohol. Maybe a little bit thin for the style and not big enough.
