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.

XIV thanks to kp. Pour is dark amber with small off white head. Aromas of candy, hops, and not much else. Flavor is lacking alot. Very watery and boring. Slight hops and fruit were present.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle pour. Muddy dark amber, with a light tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is subdued but complex, with bready malt, light pine and citrus hops, brown sugar. Taste is more malt, caramel and crystal, with a warming finish with nice pine resin hops lingering. Slightly chalky, but it works. Carbonation is perhaps a touch high, oddly effervescent. I like it.

Ruby pour. Medium light brown head. Lots of lacing. Orange hop aroma. Dark fruit, raisin. Slight boozy. Burnt candy. Well balance flavor. A lot of the same flavors as aroma. Some chocolate and soil like flavors also. ---Rated via iPhone

rayaron (361) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear medium brown with low beige head. Sweet aroma, prune, woody, yeasty, faint onion notes, licorice (and maybe even a salted fish?). Sweet prune flavor, woody, some herbs, a bit hoppy, grassy, some caramel. Sticky bitter-sweet aftertaste. Medium carbonation, oily texture, full-bodied.

flaska hemma - doften är stickig av alkoholen man kan ana en viss kryddighet. Mycket riktigt så är den väldigt kryddig i sin smak. Spännande smak vet inte riktigt hur man ska beskriva de. Den är mörk i sin färg men inte helt ogenomskinlig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
