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.

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 (3242) - 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 (6470) - 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.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2005
Copper brown with small head. Slightly bitter with decent malt backing, not as good as Bigfoot...this was the 2003 bottle.

shadey (1900) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2005
Red brown color with little to no head. Very rich aroma. Heavy with alcohol. Big mouthfeel. Rich and complex. Maple sweetness. Delicious, especially from Utah.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 2004: Golden-chestnut colour. Chocolatey, orangey aroma. Chocolatey, grapefruity, toasty, alcoholic flavour. This one is ready now, and quite pleasant.

2003: Bright reddish-brown colour. Chewy crystal malt aroma. Very earthy, bitter. Raw, with lots of heat. Maybe but it’s still young and needs the edge taken off the heat and bitterness. Ar 6 Ap 4 F 6 P 3 O13 = 3.2

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
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.
