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.

A remarkable barley wine! Poured a deep copper color with a lot of caramel in the nose. The taste was rich in the Carmel as well along with some fig and candied sugar. This was a very refreshing, warming beer that was definitely worth savoring.

Really impressed with this beer. A BA member brought this back from his journies and said he paid very little for it. This is a nice barleywine. Worth the cheap price

2004 NABA Festival: Darker in color. Bitter, citrusy taste. Not a very good taste.

Very nice aroma smells sweet hoppy carmel and roasted malt. Appearance is a nice dark reddish brown clear color with nice carbonation and a thick tan head. Head diminishes fairly fast and leaves some decent lacing. I get some sweet Carmel flavor with hops and able to taste the alcohol towards the end. Very nice strong beer.

Pours a dark amber color with khaki head. Sweet caramel notes and a lot of hops come across the nose. The taste is caramel malts, ripe fruit, and hops. There is a weird, but not bad, bitterness to the finish. Not a bad barley wine.

Pours a nice dark reddish brown. Spicy nose, alcohol, peppers and bitter hops. Spicy hops upfront, alcohol bitterness immediately, peppery and malty. Mouthfeel is bitter, spicy and smooth. Overall pretty delicious.

This is review of 16th anniversary barleywine, bottled on 11/24/09. Pours a one finger, beige head. Body is a very dark brown. Head retention and lacing are pretty good. Smell is sweet, lots of caramelized sugar, roasted malt, and some spice like ginger or cinnamon. No hops are detected and alcohol is faint. Taste is of classic barleywine. Honey, some diacetyls, and roasted caramel malt. Theres also a bit of fruit, dried apricots and dates. Hops are present but have faded with time. Alcohol, for 10 percent, is pretty mellow. Mouthfeel is nice and rich. Carbonation levels are good. Head contributed some thick consistency to the beer. Drinkability was excellent. One of the easiest drinking barleywines I’ve had the pleasure of drinking. Nothing too extraordinary about this beer, just a fine example of the style, nice and clean tasting. Excited to see what acouple years of aging does to this beer.

Mild malt and candy aroma that pours out dark deep red with a lot of tan micro bubbles and strong lacing. Flavor was surprisingly smooth at first, with rich malt, fruit and candy taste that ends very biter. Extremely easy to drink, if you don’t mind the aftertaste, which is bitter and slightly off.

Pours a dark amber color. Fairly malty but with a more than perfect amount of hops to balance the flavor. I’m not a fan of the barleywines, but this is good, very good.
