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.

Pours carmel color with thinned head. Nice schotchy reisniny aroma and flavor featuring sitcky honeyed malted sugars and carmels jiving with a sturdy drying hoppy distance. A nice balancing touch is provided by the dusty faint echoes which put the whole brew into perspective, three is also overriding sweetness and alcohol pervading throughout the finish. There are a lot of directions in which this brew flies but it seems that all directions bleed into each other to provide a tasty and cohesive brew in which thre are many levels of appreciation. Overall well done sir.

10.4%, Beautiful deep dark amber brown color with small tan head and messy lacing. Aroma and flavor have strong caramel malt notes with a strong hoppy bitter finish. Pretty good overall.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond shop. Clear amber with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, grassy hops, citrus, cheese. Sweet with roast, prunes, raisins, caramel, alcohol, strong hoppy bitterness. Rather full bodied, oily on palate. Heavy stuff, but good one.

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.

EdInSaltLake (665) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Aroma: Fruity (citrus, raisin, berry) and spicy hops; light caramel malt, sweet, subtle toast. Can smell a little alcohol.
Sweet malty flavor, with bread and caramel malt in the background. Balanced with firm bitterness, and candy-ish fruity (citrus, plum, and almost strawberry-like?), tongue-numbingly spicy hop flavor. Warming--but little to no alcohol flavor.
"Best before 11/8/13"

The XVI anniversary version. Pours a nice reddish brown color with a cream colored head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel malts and an underlying of citrus hops. Flavor of citrus hops with an overall fruity/caramel flavor. I like the balance of this beer.

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.

XVII. Pours a dark amber with a thin off-yellow head, fast to fade. Aroma is caramel, dark fruit, grassy and citrusy hops. Taste is quite crisp; dark fruit, bitter hops, warm malty notes throughout. Strong alcohol taste; bitter finish; lemon rind. Nice. Mouth feel is smooth. Interested in seeing how it ages.

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.
