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.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2014
Brunröd öl med ett stort gräddigt beige skum. Doft av framförallt bröd, lätta rostade toner och bränt socker. I smaken finns även mörk kola och nötighet. En markerad beska som ger en torr munkänsla. Inte alls så söt som barleywines brukar kunna vara.

Linnet (1091) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Booze, vinous malts, basement aromas, butterscotch, herbs, sort of one-dimensional. Deep copper colour, medium beige head, lacing. Big bite, salty, noticable sweetness, ABV very noticable, big saltiness and big bite, not a good combination. Despite this mismatch a very well crafted beer. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter and salty finish. World class craftsmanship, bad flavourcombinations.

wihlan (227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2014
flaska hemma - doften är stickig av alkoholen man kan ana en viss kryddighet. Mycket riktigt så är den väldigt kryddig i sin smak. Spännande smak vet inte riktigt hur man ska beskriva de. Den är mörk i sin färg men inte helt ogenomskinlig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
