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.

daknole (9622) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2008
I got this from douglas88 and belgianbeergal. Dark brown pour. Aroma is very sweet with a good nose of hops too. Flavor would be really nice but I personally do not love very hoppy barleywines and this one is hoppy. But it has a great mouthfeel and its obvious this beer is well made...just not my perfect style.
