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.

12 oz. bottle from OhioDad via trade, thanks Scott. XII wonderful malty aroma of caramel and toffee. pours a rich mahogany brown with a short lived head. flavor is more malt with some brown sugar and somewhat acidic on the finish. still not a huge BW fan, but I’m getting there.

Another score from the state store. Yep, the best beer I’ve tried from this brewer. Bottle, XII anniversary bwine. Nice translucent mahogany color....small tannish head that hung around for a bit. Classic big malty caramel nose with some piney hoppiness to boot. Big bitter hop bite at the initial taste that subsides to allow that toffee/caramel malt presence come through. Nice mouthfeel...adequate carbonation...pretty good. I couldn’t find much to not like about this. I’ll let some sit for another year or so and revisit.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 Bottle... Clear ruby ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Fruity, malty nose. Well-balanced, malty flavor. Medium sweetness... toffee and caramel. Medium bitterness... pink grapefruit. Mildly tangy. Not overly boozy. Medium-bodied and lightly oily with soft carbonation. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish. Thanks to scraff for sharing!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Thanks Jordan! Dark crimson, thin creamy light tan head. Nose was full of caramel, toffee, pine, and dark cherry. Well bittered flavors up front with more piney notes blending well with sweet caramel and dark fruit tones. Medium bodied and oily, soft carbonation, dry, fruity, bitter-sweet finish. Not top of the line, but a good tasting BW none the less...

From 2004 bottle. Pours a murky brown with tan head. Nose is sweet, roasted caramel malts and brown sugar. Flavor is more of the same with a decent bitter finish. A well balance BW, but with a hint of metallic in the flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 I’ve always rooted for this brewer, with their eco-friendly techniques and their attempt to brew beer in the wasteland of Utah. But until now, I had never really cared for any of their brews. This, the 11th anniversary barley wine however, was quite tasty. Medium to deep brwon, hint of ruby, slight head, quite clear. Aroma of pine resin with rich toffee. Flavors dead on match, loads of toffee and pine. Thick and rich, but straightforward in nature. Perhaps a bit of a one note beer, but a good note. NOTE: 11 month old bottle of the XIII is really good, perhaps a bit more complex than the XI. A consistently good experience with this series.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Uinta 10th: This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of off-white colored foamy bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a semi-transparent brown colored body. The aroma was vinous malty hoppy bready and doughy. The mouth feel was tingly from the start and vinous in the finish. It had a strong vinous malt spice flavor.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2006
XII Bottle: Dark ruby mahogany color, tan head and excellent lacing. A bit roasty with a strong hop character and alcohol in the nose. The flavor is metallic with a large body, lots of alcohol and the hops create a lack of cohesion between the body and the sweetness while the alcohol takes bites out of your palate at the same time. Meh.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2003 Total Score: 4.1
NABA BeerFest 03: One of the best beers at the festival, went quick. A very malty character to complement some of the sweet/alcohol undertones. A giant amongst midgets at this beer fest.

Bottle. Intense malt character. Toffee, casramel, more chocolate than you’d expect in a BW, and raisins. Small, if any, hop presence noted. Different and I like it.

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Pours a deep mahogony color w/ a light tan creamy head and some nice lacing. A nice spicy hop aroma with a good amount of sweet toffees and sugarz. The spice makes it seem like something i’ve had before but I couldn’t place it. Palate is fairly well caoted lightly oily. Flavor is pretty dry hop some light resins piney w/ some light fruits and a nice amount of spice. Very one dimensional flavor. Could have used a bit more carmel malt in the falvor in my opinion.
