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.

bottle - This dark auburn colored brew has an aroma of malt, dark fruit, and alcohol. It tastes of caramel malt and toffee with plenty of hops bitterness to balance the big grain bill. It’s full bodied with a long, bitter finish. Very good.

_angst_ (2854) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours deep reddish caramel brown with a thin brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty and slightly fruity with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, alcohol, moist grass, pine needles, lemon zest, orange zest, dark honey and plums in brandy. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with caramel, biscuits, sweet dark bread, grapefruit rinds, liquorice root, alcohol, orange zest, lemon zest, leather, pineapple syrup, resinous wood, pine needles and kumquats. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly viscous, slightly sticky, astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with caramel, grapefruit rinds, unripe pineapple, unripe mango, pine needles, resinous wood, moist grass, orange zest, kumquats and alchol. A very big US-style barley wine... Would have loved it with a bigger malt focus and not as heavy on the bittering hops but this works...
