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.

Pours a hazy dark red with a thick creamy coffee foam head. It’s actually a surprisingly dark head considering the color of the beer. Minty hops atop alcohol and cookie malt. The body is surprisingly dry, leaving a very short finish. For once, I’ve found a barleywine where I actually wish there were a little more sweetness and body.

Bottle from Winestyles. Pours dark amber with a thin layer of off white head and great lacing. Aroma of fruit and caramel. Taste of raisins and citrus.

Dark brown pour, thin head, not the biggest Barleywine fan, this is one was OK. Though it is 10.4 ABV, not overbearing, surprisingly smooth. Go Utah!

brewballs (214) - USA - MAR 12, 2014
Good barley wine. Expected a little more though. Plum hue. Boozy, malty aroma. Thin head. Swirly. Great start but the wash down lacks carbonation. Not a very balanced brew even with the 10 ABV. It lacks a bitterness that seems to be the mark of a great barleywine. It seems a tad safe and not in the manner for example The Alaskan Barleywine. It is good but not as the brand subscribes us to believe.

ilovedarkbeer (2479) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a dark reddish brown color with a lacy off white head. Notes of burnt caramel, orange citrus, cereal, and chocolate. Supple mouthfeel, grainy finish.

Pours a dark brown body with a thick head. Aroma with tones of potato. A rich taste with lots of interesting tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Melker (244) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Poured into a wine glass. Fruity and toffee aroma. Taste of bread, caramel, herbs and alcohol. Maybe a little bit thin for the style and not big enough.

(Bottle). Lovely fresh scent of hops with aromas of sweet tropical fruits. Sweet taste of malt, slightly over-ripe tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt, raisins and alcohol. Much sweet sticky alcohol in the aftertaste. Well? Impressive beer, but how palatable is it really? In my mouth a little too much flavor of sweet toffee. But okay, 10,4 % ABV is not noticeable too much in the taste, and that it is impressive!

panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Pours clear dark brown. Nice lastning head. Nose is dried dark fruits, caramel malt and leather. Typical american barley wine taste: pines, burnt sugar and very bitter. Full body.

Bottle from 99 bottles. Pours dark brown. Thin tan head. Scent is alcohol and sweetness. Taste is a little less sweet. Malty, some dark fruits. Pretty good beer.
