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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Dark mahogany with a huge off white head and sheet lacing. Cascade hops that are a touch over powering. Again with the Cascade in the flavor. Sweet malts and bitter hops. Is that caramel? Sticky palate with and alcohol finish.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
X 2003 10th anniversary bottle. Dark brown-amber, hard to see through, very nice head that dissapates and laces. Malty candy-citrus alcohol hops aroma. Begins malty, somwhat sweet and then astringent with hops alcohol in a bitter finish. Not as complex as one expects a top-notch BW to be, a good effort though.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 2, 2004
(12 oz bottle: ScottVacula’s Barleywine Party ’04) Malty and sweet, but the hops and dark roasted malt are perhaps a bit too bitter for a barleywine; The double-digit alcohol is quite evident and a bit harsh in the finish; The full bodied palate isn’t all that smooth; The nose mirrors the flavor, being malty, hoppy, alcoholic and a bit sharp; Deep ruddy brown color; Tan head is smallish on the pour and a bit bubbly

Orangey light brown cloak is crowned by a slight off-white ring. Beautiful biscuity malt has a profuse earthy and smoky backbone to it. At the same time, the severe alcohol bite is dwarfed by obtrusive c-hops, sharply piney, orangey, grapefruity.. Palate presents also that immature hoppy profile on a leafy platter, almost harshly so and I’m usually quite fond of leafy flavors. Suggestions of wood, pencil shavings (dusty finish), vegetal green hops, toffee. Medium body shelters a low carbonation. Nevertheless, just for being what it is (10% barleywine from Utah), this is an absolute must.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Nose is brown sugar, vinous with pear, apple, alcohol. Juicy up front with a fair amount of sweet malt. Way too sharp a finish even at a few years old.

Terminus (3327) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2005
bottle from 2003-pours a slightly dirty brown hue with not much head to mention. big aged caramel malt aroma with some slight piney hops in there as well-toffee, some alcohol and aged fruits. good body, but not that complex. pretty straight forward, but in a good way. some alcohol, but the aged malts mask it and meld nicely. a sipper for shure! For Utah, this is VERY good!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2005
2003 10th Anniversary Barley Wine. Cloudy, deep brown body with a fading, soapy beige to tan head. A very basic barley wine that is sweet and malty up front with some prominent brown sugar aspects and firm bitterness in the finish. Moderate impression of alcohol. Solid, but indistinct as far as barley wines go.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
Big hoppy hot aroma with plenty of caramel malt to boot. Rich reddish copper colour with sweetness and bitterness battling it out. Solid but top of the line, but nice to have a beer from Utah!
