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.

TBone (12321) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2009
Bottled (XVI, bought from GBBF, bottled 02/20/09).
Dark ruby-brown color, small steady beige head, some lace. Berryish red currant aroma, some sweaty hops, caramel. Flavor is similar, dominated by rusty hops, caramel, licorice, berries ... Smooth, liquerish palate, decent hoppyness, but leans more towards sweetness than eg. Bigfoot.

Oakes (12167) - 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

(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.

(X -- 10th Anniversary BW, 10% ABV) Deep copper body with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, toffee, alcohol. Taste is mild sweet, grapefruit, toffee, alcohol. FInish has strong alcohol warming. Medium-full body. FLavor not as developed as the aroma -- needs more sweetness.

12oz bottle-pours a light tan head and dark red/mahogany color. Aroma is dark fruit-cherry, plum, sweet medium malt-caramel. Taste is dark fruit-cherry, plum, sweet medium malt-caramel, very bitter-medium hops, vinuous. Nicely done, not my style. OK carbonation.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
XIV at GBBF 2008. Deep ruby brwon with a lasting off-white head. SNPA-like juicy citrus hop aroma, with some malt. Dry malty flavour with toffee and caramel, some citrus hop and a hint of alcohol. Very good, but felt like it probably would have been even better fresher.
