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.

Bottle of a four pack from Wegman’s. Pours medium to with some thathow fades. Nose is fruity ketones and aldehydes, taste is malty goodness folllwed by a balance hop (Cascade). I am betting this won’t age well but we will see. %inish is grapfruit rind. nice

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from beersofeurope.com. Cloudy, muddy chocolate brown. Smells strongly, sickly sweet aroma of hoppy syrup. Taste is fruit cake, sultanas, with a strongly bitter malt tang finish. Warming. Strong alcohol. Perhaps too thin but very nice all the same.

ericdevin (668) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a rich reddish brown, slight amount of tan head. Aroma dull caramel, some resin and fresh line overtones. Body full and lively, not at all syrupy. Finish sweet and treacly, with a woody pine character. Aroma underwhelming but otherwise really nice, especially for the money.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Good stuff, who’d have thought this would come out of Utah? Tasted similar to Arrogant Bastard. Big hop bite with a sweet, smooth aftertaste. The ABV left a nice glow in the stomach.

Bottled 9/28/08. Pours a clear dark amber-copper color creating a thin, but tight, creamy head. Exits the bottle thick and viscous. Dominant aromas of caramel candies, toasted malts and dark brown sugar are initially noted. Although described on the label as a malty barleywine a substantial amount of citrusy and piney hop aromas make their way through in the background. Some faint distracting and somewhat unwanted aromatic medicinal and oxidation notes are noted also. For such a young bottle this is quite unusual. Palate is slick, full and oily with a very fine carbonation level. Great mouthfeel for a high ABV beer. Flavors start out on the malty side with assertive notes of burnt caramel candies, toasted malts, brown sugar, dark dried fruits and a touch of sherry. A nice balance of moderately bitter pine and grapefruit rind hop flavors slide in at the finish to cut through the sweetness. Overall a pleasant, full bodied warm sipper; perfect for a chilly winter night. At $9.99 per sixer a great value also.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Pours dark amber with offwhite head that retains reasonably well to a thin laced rimjob. Nose is fresh with some pine and brown sugary baked goods. Palate has the same elements with piney hops, caramel & brown sugar sweetness, and a little alcohol warmth on the finish. More easy drinking than many barleywines. I’ll have to get this one on draft when I’m in Utah next time.

14th Anniversary Bottle: Courtesy of TBC...thanks Matt. Pours a clear, dark amber with no head. Notes of caramel, roasted malts, wheat and a hint of fruitiness...not much of a hop profile to it. Medium bodied...flavors of toasted grains, some woodsy/earthy characteristics and some hints of caramel.

Uinta X, tap at Naja’s from early December. Mahagony brown pour with small head. Very rich sweet malty aromas and flavors - caramel, toffee, dark fruits - touch of plum. Alcohol very present. Very nice.
