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.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 11th anniversary edition. Beautiful deep red-bronze color with a thick head. Caramelized malt with both yeast and hops in the nose. Rich and bitter with thick toffee malt flavors, a slight sweetness, and pleasant yeastiness. Big mouth feel with quite a bitter edge and a lot of warmth. Good alcohol character.

radiomgb (2262) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottle from 2003. Caramel in colour. Aroma was of caramel malts, earth and lots of citrus (oranges and lemons). The flavour was of citrus hops, pine, caramel, earthy, some alcohol. Chewy mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes a little hot, lingering bitterness. Nicely done.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2005
XI version. 12 oz bottle. Deep, clear, garnet colour. Massive hop aroma, earthy, spicy, and citrusy all at the same time. There is also a lot of sweet biscuity malt underneath it all. More balanced in flavour than the nose would suggest, brown sugar, toast, some dark fruit before the spice and citrusy hops kick in. Long bitter finish. Could use some age, but is very drinkable right now.

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
An unclear amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy - and so is the flavor combined with some over ripe fruit notes.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
2003 bottling: reddish brown, beige head. roasty aroma with dried fruit, wood, big hops and something that reminds me of dill pickple chips(not in a bad way). mouthfeel is sweet and sticky. big flavous with roasted sweet malt, cherries, and resiny piney, herbal hops. nice

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2005
2004 vintage - Ruddy chestnut color with a small tan head. Nice bread dough, toffee, caramel, grapefruit and earthy aromas. Flavor profile has some holes - roasted malt, biscuit, grapefruit and toffee all present, but not as developed or full as top notch barleywines. Alcohol a little too present. Good, not great.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2005
2003 10th Anniversary Barley Wine. Cloudy, deep brown body with a fading, soapy beige to tan head. A very basic barley wine that is sweet and malty up front with some prominent brown sugar aspects and firm bitterness in the finish. Moderate impression of alcohol. Solid, but indistinct as far as barley wines go.

Terminus (3253) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2005
bottle from 2003-pours a slightly dirty brown hue with not much head to mention. big aged caramel malt aroma with some slight piney hops in there as well-toffee, some alcohol and aged fruits. good body, but not that complex. pretty straight forward, but in a good way. some alcohol, but the aged malts mask it and meld nicely. a sipper for shure! For Utah, this is VERY good!

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 12, 2005
This is nicely hoped strong ale. Alcohol is present but well refined. Brew of copper color. Barley wine in style but hop accented.
