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 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.

XV. 12 Oz bottle from the huge liquor store in Park City. Brownish ruby red pour with a loose tan head. Huge sweet malty nose. Subdued hops, bananas, vanilla. Flavor is similar, with more hops apparent. Lingering bitter finish. Full and oily body. Drinkable but quite sweet. Tastes and smells like a barley wine - scotch ale hybrid. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours nice dark ruby caramel color, little bit of off white foam dissipates quickly. Nose is all caramel and booze, with maybe just a hint of toffee thrown in. The taste is an intensified match, and a lovely balance of sugary sweet with tangy, semi-bitterness and booze. Lovely clean finish with a nice lingering on the tongue and teeth. Top drawer stuff in the style.

X (that’s 10 in roman numerals) Pours a nice clean amber color. Very impressive barley wine aroma; strong hop character with a carmel malt beneath. The flavor is very sweet at first followed by a grainy and biscut malt, but not as much hop as I expected. There is chocolate malt as well but not as much hop flavor as I expected. There is a bit of alcohol, but it is vairly well hidden.

XVI version: Pours deep brown amber, like dirty copper. Modest but thick light beige head. Leaves a continuous ring of lace after every sip. From a distance, I smelled perfume. As I brought my nose closer, brown sugar and sweet malt came through. Up close, solid floral hop aroma. Great balance. Could be a strong brown ale; could be a high-hopped barley wine; could even be a sweet porter. It has elements of all three. Again, superb balance with a multitude of flavors coming through--none of them dictating the flavor. Crystal malt up front, mild alcohol warmth, biting hop aftertaste. Heavy, almost buttery body with plenty of carbonation. A superb beer that is worth seeking out. A complete surprise when compared to the other Uinta offerings.

Deep amber with medium light brown head. Aroma dark sugars, booze, faint citrus hops. Full body. Alcohol is prominent but mostly manages to stay out of the way. Just on the acceptable side of syrupy. Quite sweet at first but balances out eventually. Toffee, dates, candied citrus are there. Lots of malt. Pretty good.
