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.

XI edition. Extreme sweetness in the nose, loads of caramel, very light notes of some hops and alcohol. Dark amber colored beer, medium sized off-white head. Very sweet malty flavor, notes of molasses, ends on a sharp bitter note, light alcohol.

(Bottle, 2003 vintage) Pours a murky deep mahogany body with a moderate creamy beige head. Aroma of toasted bread, toffee, caramel, chocolate, and some citrus. Rich, chewy breadiness, malt, and spices with a bitter finish. Feel the warming sensation of the 10% abv.

SDalkoholic (2261) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 13, 2005
2003 12 oz bottle: A deep, thick, heavy mahogany red with no signs of floaties or dust clouds swirling around. Small but rough amount of heading created but it was mainly because of the rigourous pour i gave it. The aroma is faint while still being sweet, dark, malty, and has a tiny floral hop background. Nice to see this stuff holds up so well both in its aroma and no junk developing yet even though its only been stored for two years. On the other hand, the flavor has gone quite bitter and bland with little to no trace of signature barleywine characteristics. What is to be noted is a small chewy malt flavor that ca be thanked from proper storage, but i have trouble locating much else besides that it is dry and lurks an aftertaste of coffee in the finish. First beer i have found by Uinta brewing, but i gurantee it won’t be the last.

Big hoppy hot aroma with plenty of caramel malt to boot. Rich reddish copper colour with sweetness and bitterness battling it out. Solid but top of the line, but nice to have a beer from Utah!

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 (2543) - 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 (9004) - 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.
