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.

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.

2003 vintage, sampled draught at Stuffed Sandwich, Greater Los Angeles.
Dark brown with creamy head. Some vinous berries upo front. Sweet, buttery and very malty. Salty with loads of toffee. More of an English style barley wine, than an American hop monster variety. May I call for the substyle Utah Barley Wine ;-)

An XIV bottle. Dark brown cloudy beer, thin tan head. Rich beer! A brief flash of sweet creamy malt then a rich chocolatey malt. This leads to a briney hop bitter finish. Unusually dark barleywine with a good medly of flavours.

Bottle at R.F.D., Washington DC, as XV Anniversary
Mahogany color. Aroma of caramel and old wood, solid. Strong body structure, with very good sweet caramel flavor, not syrupy, and with a strong bitterness. The final is well balanced between medium sweet caramel and the bitterness. Not very complex, but enjoyable.
