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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottled on 6/1/2012. My first thought was this is very reminiscent of Unita's Duhbe, with simply more malt concentration and less bitter hops. Don't get me wrong, I love Duhbe.. Just being making an association... I'm guessing a similar malt/hop bill, with simply a different proportion and similar yeast. I may be wrong, as I'm not a brewer, though I can't deny what I taste. Rich, honeyed malted and light caramel, with mildly roasted malt, wheat bread and caramelized stonefruit. Think honeyed, caramalized, dried apricots, on wheat.. with a slightly bitter tinge.. Good.. Though I prefer the additional bitter hops of Duhbe, if i'm paying for the malt/hop bill. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Dark, ruddy walnut brown. Tight tan head. Bright, hoppy 2xAIPA aroma. Very nice. West coast hops, lots of darkish malting, sturdy bittering but I wouldn’t call it aggressive. A bit on the acidic side, but great balance otherwise. Maybe a little fruitiness. Tell ya what... sight unseen, I’d bet on a Uinta brew anytime based on what I have had to this point. Growler County.

banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
2 year old bottle. Aroma of caramel and tobacco. Taste is medium hoppy, with notes of said caramel and tobacco, but also some tofee, bread and pine. Really, really good and balanced after 2 years.

Bottle @tasting. Aroma is huge fresh hops, caramel, liquorice, fruits, raisin/plums, etc etc. Promising. Flavour is liquid bitter and hoppy for a barleywine, with big caramel, liquorice and fruits. Very nice.

thb (707) - 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.

Pours a clear brown with a tan head. Pretty thin looking. Aromas of caramel, some light floral notes. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of toffee, caramel, pine sap. More bitter as it warms. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Thin. Very English style. Solid.

rodenbach99 (3257) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût, Un superbe barley wine intense, sucré avec une forte dose de houblon. On se rapproche du sucre d’orge tellement c’est intense. Les houblons amères sont piquants sur la langue. Une bière extrême tant au nez qu’en bouche.
