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.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Dark toffee with a thin fleeting layer of foam. Smells like rich toffee, caramel, chocolate, raisins, sweet cherries, and some piney hops; pretty complex. Pungent flavors of booze, dark chocolate, slight roast, and slight anise with a strong hop bitterness to balance any sweetness; it’s surprisingly un-sweet, no cloying. Finishes slick and bitter; full bodied with low carbonation. Bottled 3/7/12, I’m surprised to see how well the bitterness has stood up for the last several months. A really great take on a barleywine.

DRaft. Amber/dark pour. This is definitely an american barleywine, super hoppy, feels like a double ipa with jsut loads of malt character, the two balance.

tekstr1der (131) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Possibly too fresh? This had a harshness I did not expect. Alcohol was forefront, more so than other barley wines I’ve enjoyed. Poured brown, with little head. Aroma’s of malt and alcohol. Flavor was slightly astringent, with more bitter than malt, and more alcohol burn. Finish could be smoother, again perhaps needing aging.

BVery (7891) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Murky orange-amber pour with a small rocky white head. Malt, dark fruit, toffee, and some nice hop assertiveness to offset the sweetness. Creamy but not heavy on the tongue. Good stuff.

degbert (1345) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a high, very solid, lacy light brown head. Nose is toffee, boozy, herbal, walnuts, and fruitcake. Drier than I expected on the tongue, with a hefty dose of black tea and spice; comes off almost chai-like, with oak and herbal elements. Finish is long and a little hot. Quite good.
