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.

Bottle. Pours a mahogany color with a nice slightly off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, caramel, and cookie dough. Flavor is citrus fruits, tobacco, caramel, bread and figs. On the palate the beer is quite hoppy and bitter, medium-bodied with some carbonation and alcohol warming the body.

Deep aroma of plums, raisin and caramel. Similar flavours but also some burnt caramel that ruins it for me. A little bitter finish.

Cool_Bond (1318) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Floral and fruity fragrance. The taste is fruity and quite bitter. Hard bitterness that lies down on the tongue for a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Klar, vinröd-brun öl med ett brun orange skum. Doft: Malt, humle, örter, fat, exotisk frukt sallad, läder. Smak: Malt, humle, citrus, frukt likör. Trevlig Barley Wine i både smak och doft. Vill dock ha lite mer söttma.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Flaska från SB. Söt, fruktig doft med mango, grape, citruszest, tall, ananas, honung, karamell och alkoholvärme. Stor söt men framförallt besk smak. En stor BW med allt vad det innebär men en riktigt elak beska med maskros och grapevitebeska som gör att man sippar i små doser. Rejäl maltsötma, karamell, smörkakor, frukt men i slutänden mest besk. Lite för så i min bok.
