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.

BiereLuc (887) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Bière cuivrée aux reflets rubis, légèrement voilée, coiffée d’une belle mousse crème. Le nez est bien malté, floral et parfumé de houblons. L’alcool est trop présent en bouche, principalement au dépens des saveurs plus maltées. À la fin, il ne reste qu’une forte amertume qui s’étale longuement en arrière-goût. Un très bon produit qui détonne toutefois par rapport à mes préférences dans le style.

From bottle pours dark ruby copper with yellowish head. Generous lacing. Caramel aroma. Taste is sweet with a significant bitterness that lingers.

Salmoniform (574) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Deep reddish brown hue with lingering off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, slight banana esters, sugar, plums. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice bitter and slightly astringent following and slight ethanol in the finish. Overall this is a really nice English style Barleywine.

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours nice dark ruby caramel color, little bit of off white foam dissipates quickly. Nose is all caramel and booze, with maybe just a hint of toffee thrown in. The taste is an intensified match, and a lovely balance of sugary sweet with tangy, semi-bitterness and booze. Lovely clean finish with a nice lingering on the tongue and teeth. Top drawer stuff in the style.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown ruby red color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is malty, a bit astringent. Flavor is sweet, heavily malty, slight alcohol. Lingering nutty kick in the finish. Tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Pours a dark brown. Has a dark fruit aroma with malt. Tate is unique with dark fruit, sweet malt, carmel, and prunes. A light aftertaste of malt, but not lingering.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle after cellaring for 6 months. Murky, dark amber-brown with significant suspended sediment, a small cream-yellow head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, citrus, golden raisins and a hint of spearmint. Taste of caramel, citrus, rum, brown sugar oak and light fruit. Full/medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
