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.

Finally - a Utah beer for me! Dark plum/brown with a medium head. Aroma has some dark sugar, caramel floral/earthy hops, and some alcohol. Flavor is a tad too alcoholic, but is fairly well rounded with a nice hop bite and lots of caramel and sugar. Quite robust. Good, though some time on this one could improve it IMHO.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Vintage XIV. Clear warm amber golden with a dense and creamy beige head leaving laces. Fat aroma of burned caramel and spicy hops. Quite full-bodied with a very solid malt base of caramellish malts and overripe fruit. Distinct bitterness in the finish. 201008

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pours a clear deep amber color with a foamy tan head that lasts and laces nicely. Aroma of pine and grapefruit peel hops, sweet roasty caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar and alcohol. Flavor seems nearly IPAish at first, but the hops give way to toffee, ripe fruit, chocolate and toasty malt. Nice full, satisfying mouthfeel. The hops come back on the finish, lots of pine resin lingering on the palate. Alcohol is well incorporated into the brew. Not overly sweet. A seriously good barleywine!

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle. [Tasting @ Papsoe 20-10-2008] Average beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Clear amber color. Aroma of chewy apricot and peach with notes of rye bread, caramel, grain. Over the palate came grapefruit, alcohol, citrus and floral spicy notes. Full bodied with an average carbonation and dry thick texture. Moderated to heavy bitter and sweet flavor. Lingering bitter dry finish with a malty twist.

12 oz bottle labeled as a 2006 bottle. Deep ruby brown color with no head. Alot of raisin, toffee, and molasses in the aroma. Slightly sweet, good bitterness, a bit of oak notes, and smooth. Nice barley wine.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle at R.F.D., Washington DC, as XV Anniversary
Mahogany color. Aroma of caramel and old wood, solid. Strong body structure, with very good sweet caramel flavor, not syrupy, and with a strong bitterness. The final is well balanced between medium sweet caramel and the bitterness. Not very complex, but enjoyable.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Thanks to IrishBoy, pours deep burnt caramel with a thin halo of a head. The nose is brown sugar, dried fruits and malty. Very nice. The flavor follows the nose nicely with a touch of heat lingering. A bit creamy on the palate.
