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.

Deep copper, clear, persistent tan head. Aroma: deep malt with toffee, toast and light raisin, piney-resiny hop with light citrus. Flavor: bready, toasty malt with toffee, firm bitterness, piney, citrusy hop flavor, bitterness lingers in finish. Full bodied, warming. Great American barleywine. This bottle was late 2011 release (after they stopped numbering the bottles) and was consumed about 2 months old.

foxo82 (765) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, 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.

14th. Bottled 1/08. Pours a dark ruby with a small off white head. Retention isnt great but it never disappears. Aroma shows intense caramel maltiness. Graham cracker. A floral spiciness is also evident along with an almost pepper component. I’m really liking the aroma on this. Flavor is similar. A moderately strong hop flavor is present, surprising given its age. Nutty, caramel, somewhat bitter. Slightly sweet. Somewhat intense. I would say this has held up very well. I’ve never had this before so I don’t know how it compares at different ages but at the 2.5 year mark it’s a solid barleywine.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Pours a dark brown. Has a dark fruit aroma with malt. Tate is unique with dark fruit, sweet malt, carmel, and prunes. A light aftertaste of malt, but not lingering.

@Nedre Mölla. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Humlig, nån slags bär, karamell. Smak: Humlig, karamell, sötma, rejäl beska. Kroppen är medelfyllig, avslutningen rejält besk med en aning karamell samt spritiga inslag.

thb (740) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Deep deep amber/brown with lasting white foam. Aromas detectable from a long way away. Dark fruits, blackberry jam, buttered toast, nuts. Taste is big, bold, boozy. Sharp caramel and jam opening, moving to toffee/cereal bittersweet finish. Bitter throughout preventing the sweetness from becoming overpowering. An "American" barley wine I would say.

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

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown ruby red color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is malty, a bit astringent. Flavor is sweet, heavily malty, slight alcohol. Lingering nutty kick in the finish. Tasty.

EdInSaltLake (716) - 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"
