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.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 bottle XVI. Have another aged a year, will update tomorrow. Pours dark auburn with beige tan head, bubbly froth. Nose is deep, rich molasses, actually some subtle smoke / bacon flavors, caramel. Thick, viscous, chewy mouth feel, but pretty smooth, 10% hidden, except for a warming on the finish. Flavor is deep and musky, almost cheesy, smoked wood, with a molasses backbone, yet no sickly sweetness. Interesting take on a barely wine and I quite like it. Not the cockeyed cooper, but at $8.99 a 6 pack its a great value. AGED 1 YEAR: Nose is sweet caramel, toffee, with fruity notes of raisin, definitely some smoke still here, but more subdued. Even a pickled plum aspect, definitely still some bacon on flavor. Smoother, creamier. Rich wood bacon smoke with sweet toffee, caramel, candied raisin. I think I like it better aged a bit. Overall excellent.

Pours a reddish brown color with a brown head that has a reddish tint! Interesting! Smells a little of wood and sugary goodness. Taste is a bit bitter with some sweetness! Not my favoritest barley wine but still good and a cheap price!

On tap at The Brass Rail. At first glance the beer appears black but when held to the light it reveals that it is a very deep red, topped by a small but lasting head. Smells vaguely fruity but I think it was a bit too cold to really open up. The flavor was semi-sweet with some plum, raisin, general fruitiness. Very smooth and full bodied. Easy drinking for 10% abv.

Smells and pours thick. Almost like a cough syrup. SUPER Smooth. What a great barley wine.

2008/xv vintage thanks to a fellow rb’er, thanks! actually not bad. not great. might do ok after another year or two, so give it say 5 i would say. slight notes of smooth subtle dark fruits are showing up, but theres still a hop and alcohol mask over them on your palate. still a very big hop bitterness present. drinks fairly well, but still hot in the mouth. aroma is a oot closer to what you would want, was surprised at the bitterness masking the taste, which follows suite of the aroma and almost achieves greatness in this brew.

[Bottle] shared by STLWill. Pours clear raisin brown with a medium to large tan head. Aroma is alcohol, sherry-like oxidation, caramel, and soap/detergent. Flavor is oddly bitter, caramel, sherry, and soap. Thin and watery.

Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty, caramel. Flavor does reflect the alcohol and is not hidden. Finishes dry. Nothing special here.
