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.

2003 10th anniversary bottle. Bold aroma and flavor, lots of malt, toffee and melon, balanced out by some big time hops which added some pine and some citrus. Fuller bodied, alcohol was well-hidden. This was an incredibly pleasant surprise. Thanks rudolf.

Huge malt aroma, some toffee and treacle too. Deep copper, small tan head. Tastes of rich malt, butterscotch and some fine hops. Full bodied, sweet, and warming. Terrific! Thanks rudolf for the new state!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle, Anniversary X. Nice amber color with a smallish head. Nice barleywine aroma reminds me of Bigfoot. Nice and hoppy. Sticky, sweet and chewy mouthfeel. Floral hops are used almost perfectly here. My favorite beer from Utah by far.

Hazy dark amber-brown w/ frothy light brown foam. Sweet malty nose of caramel, butterscotch, & toffee w/ a hint of chocolate & grapefruit. Creamy, buttery feel. Sweet, malty flavour w/ light fruity notes. Dry, alcohol laden finish. A little unbalanced.

Sammy (8414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2005
OK on color and aroma, but not much on taste. Low as a barleywine, a little too drying. Altogether doesn’t work, with sweetness and medium mouthfeel but acidic, and too much alcohol in there. Maybe in a few years, but I won’t look out for it. Radekfest #5

2003 Vintage. Poured a mahogany color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of brown sugar, fruits, caramel, sweet malts, and light alcohol. Tastes of brown sugar, toffee, molasses and light alcohol. Who would have thought that a quality Barley Wine came from Utah!

2003... Poured a hazy, brownish, red color with a yellowish, yellow tan head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of port, grapes, cognac, and butterscotch. Really liked the aroma. Strong taste, roasted malt, light chocolate, toffee, caramel, and light alcohol. Really nice barleywine, thanks Steve!

Nose is brown sugar, vinous with pear, apple, alcohol. Juicy up front with a fair amount of sweet malt. Way too sharp a finish even at a few years old.
