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.

12 oz. bottle via trade. (Captain cougar?). Pours a clear dark orange brown color with a medium beige head. The aroma is toffee biscuity malt, light citrus, earthy, pine, and floral notes. The flavor has a solid malty opening dominated by caramel, dark ripe fruit, green hops add bitterness, and woody notes. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, overall very good.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2009
12oz bottle. A Barleywine from Utah...you gotta like that. Sweet toffee malt aroma, very sweet. The taste is not unlike the aroma, with some deep rustic woody tastes. Lots of molasses and resiny characteristics. Deep opaque orange brown color. The hops sort of come through in a mellow piny way especially in the finish. An all around quality Barleywine.

AmEricanbrew (6731) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 7, 2009
XV bottling. Deep copper red with a tan head. Big piney hop aroma. Medium body with a prickly carbonation. Hugely bitter grapefruit and pine hop flavors tempered by a sharp burnt caramel sweetness. Nice alcohol twang to finish. Thanks MJ !

XV. 12 Oz bottle from the huge liquor store in Park City. Brownish ruby red pour with a loose tan head. Huge sweet malty nose. Subdued hops, bananas, vanilla. Flavor is similar, with more hops apparent. Lingering bitter finish. Full and oily body. Drinkable but quite sweet. Tastes and smells like a barley wine - scotch ale hybrid. Enjoyable.

beastiefan2k (3548) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Tap @ Standings Bar, served in a small wine glass. Version XV if I remember correctly. It pours with no head and a dark ruby color and glows when put up against the light but cannot see through it anyway. Aroma is surprisingly full of aggressively bitter hops then candied sweet malts. The aroma is definitely on track for a hoppy style West coast barleywine. Taste is lighter on the hops and a bit of watery bitterness. Just in general a bit of a watery barlywine flavor but still sweet and candied.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Superdave70. Pours a cloudy iced tea color with minimal tan head. Nose is very malty with caramel, toffee and floral hops. Taste is caramel and brown sugar with a nice boozy bitter hop finish that lasts. Medium mouth feel. Good stuff! Thanks Dave!

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Pours a dark mahogany body with a thin off white head. Big caramel malt character in the aroma with a light pine perfume hop character. A moderately viscous mouthfeel. Creamy and malty at first then a strong hop pine aroma lingers with a noticeable alcohol warming. A light roasted malt character is also present in the finish. Caramel and pine clash back and forth for domination after each sip. Good brew.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2008
XV bottled on 9/29/08 by way of superdave70.

pours nearly the same color as the bottle... woody brown with coppery hues. it has a minimal tannish off white head and some light spotty lacing. the aroma is a touch resinous and hoppy along with caramel, grass, earthy spices and citrus (grapefruit and orange) in the background. the flavor is similar... along with some floral qualities. the sweetness is subdued and there is a mildly bittered spicy finish. medium bodied with fine soft carbonation. bitterness and hoppy dryness keep it from becoming sticky. a BW i actually can drink without cringing... impressive. incredibly well balanced, controlled and insanely drinkable if i didn*t have to go to work... 7/3/7/4/17/3.8
