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.

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.

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.

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 (2569) - 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.

XII - Deep garnet center with a small bubbly rim. Aroma is rich, but slightly subdued. Malty caramel aromas, light brown sugar, toffee and some various other hoppy spiciness. Flavor is nicely English, extremely malty with light hoppiness, chewy mouthfeel. You could make this into an all night beer.

XI on tap at Toronado. This dark brown ale poured with a nice tan head. The aroma was hoppy and malty. The flavor was fruity and sweet, with a slightly bitter finish.

XI Bottle -- Dark brown and read body. Medium light brown head. Good malts and mollasses in the aroma, some plums and raisins. Sharp hops and carbonation in the initial taste. Some interesting citrus accents as well. Spicy initial pallet which calms down to a nice carbonated sweetness in the end.

Bottle XI. Sweet carmel, brown sugar with a light piney hop aroma. Reddish ruby brown, creamy tan colored head that disappeared too quickly. Powerful mixture of sweet malts meet bitter hops and suprisingly well balanced. Thick and sticky mouthfeel, malt and hop up front with a nice lingering dry hop finish. Not heavily carbonated and not much burn with the 10.4% it carries. There is a lot of malt flavors that balance the dry piney hop nicely. Very nice, I am going to age a couple bottles.
