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.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2015
A couple months at cellar temp has the expected results with less hop influence, while also allowing the exceptional texture to shine a bit more, +1 on Palate

Fresh review on Feb 28, 2015 : Ruby highlights adorn a mahogany body beneath a slowly fading, rocky faint tan head creating intricate lace all around

Classic American barley wine aromas and flavors, stanky dank, dark and red berries, herbs and citrus balanced over sweet cherry malt notes on the beautifully smooth signature Uinta texture, medium weight offering coffee cake and toffee leading to a piney, complex residual full of the previously mentioned components

12oz bottle best before 05/04/15H served at 50° into Stölzle Swirl Red Wine glass

I shy away from barley wines, fearing them to be unbalanced malt bombs, but this one is so balanced, it’s delicious from beginning to end.

12oz bottle, Seattle. Dark leathery mahogany, small foam. Cherry fruitness and roasty malt aroma. Ruddy, roasty body with a hint of alcohol and bite of hops. Dark grain, smoke and leather while still remaining pretty bright. Tasty beer.

RedSox2004 (1672) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Muddy reddish brown with a one-finger beige head and a thin veil of lace. Aromas is all sweet and fruity caramel with ample dried fruits and resinous hops. Big caramel and dark fruit sweetness up front with grassy and pine hop bitterness adding lots of life. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy but boozy finish.

Ron (3576) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, citrus and hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and bitter finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. The alcohol is only slightly noticeable. Maybe I’ll pickup another to cellar.
